    Get a head start on your plans for tying the knot in 2022 with The Painted Table’s Top Wedding Trends! Take our top ten list of unique ideas and put a custom spin on them to transform your wedding day into a one-of-a-kind reflection of your personalities that tell your own love story.

    1. Boho Chic Styling

    Your non-conformist wedding or elopement takes on a bohemian, hippy vibe. Intertwine the look of natural fibers, light clothing, and macramé with fresh or dried wildflowers, candles, and soft scents. Arrive to your wedding in a vintage bug or woody. Our staff creates the tablescape that takes a nod to your favorite boho décor.

    2. Charcuterie Cones

    This new food trend serves up the pretty and the practicality. Charcuterie cones are just what they sound like—Delicious finger food appetizers are delicately displayed in individual cones. Instead of guests diving into a board of hors devourers en-mass, they each hold their own, beautifully arranged portable serving, including gorgeous edible flowers and herbs. We’ll create a tapestry of flavor and color combinations to delight the eye and the palate.

    3. Grazing Tables (always a favorite)

    Invite your guests to pick up their favorite foods at their leisure! This giant charcuterie board welcomes snackers that love grabbing a variety of different morsels without going overboard. For your wedding reception, cocktail hour, or wedding rehearsal noshes, pick a theme and let us run with the ball: a pizza dream spread featuring all types of toppings upon pizza slices, a boho spread perched atop wooden serving trays decorated with sprigs of dried flowers, or your selection of delicacies from around the world. Even consider a dessert table with pretty, little bite-sized sweets for all to sample. The choice is yours.

    4. Wood-Fired Pizza

    A gourmet treat! Feature pizzas hand-tossed and homemade, in your favorite varieties, for the main dish at your engagement party get-together, bridal party blowout, and rehearsal dinner soiree. Select all-time classic topping combinations or get crazy with unforgettable and unexpected new taste sensations for your pizza-loving guests. Let The Painted Table catering team suggest popular combinations.

    5. Soft Pretzels and Custom Beverages

    Tie the knot with your reception spread! Soft pretzels and imaginative dipping sauces are the pleasurable appetizers of choice to stave off hunger for guests that are ready to charge into the main meal ahead of schedule. Add a customized wedding beverage, and you’re displaying your distinct personalities long before guests view your wedding cake and cake topper. We’ll create the perfect signature cocktails to work in tandem with your dipping sauce and additional appetizer flavors.

    6. Mini Tacos Paired with Tequila Shots

    This is just one example of cocktail and appetizer pairings that go well with weddings. Bite-sized tacos, filled with tantalizing ingredients perch atop a lime for a quick squeeze into a cooling shot of tequila. Or ask us for suggestions that pair other finger-foods with your favorite beverages. Port wine and stuffed mushrooms? Sliders and mini beer steins? Gazpacho and savory grilled cheese sandwich nibbles? The Painted Table delivers your pleasure.

    7. Donut Walls

    The versatility of this sweet catering trend is beyond belief! Choose your favorite flavors and color combinations to add whimsical glam for your wedding, rehearsal dinner, engagement party, or bridal shower. Guests take individual donuts from our chic presentation on the table or remove them from right off the sign. It’s dessert finger food at its best!

    8. Pets at Weddings

    Including extended family members, such as your children and stepparents, are an eternal way to demonstrate your love and commitment to one another. Include your fur babies. They can accompany you up the aisle, decorated as flower children and even act as ring bearers (place your wedding rings inside a special purse attached to their collars). Wrap your wedding theme around your pets—Display your equestrian side, your love of bunnies, your affinity for beagles, how your heart takes flight with macaws, and your love of all catty things, by including their images with table décor, signage, and cake toppers. The Painted Table is the source of endless ideas.

    9. Picnic Brunch Bridal Showers
    (with bottomless mimosas, too!)

    Imagine a sunny day brunch that mimics a picnic at the park, beach, or forest. This cozy and comfy party features cushions and pillows that encourage guests to sit cross-legged or stretch out their legs upon the covered ground. A low-lying table can include posh décor (silk table runners, china, and pastel-colored beverage glasses) or rustic chic (checkered table runner with vintage plates and soda glasses). The Painted Table guides you to the style that complements your taste.

    10. Yosemite Elopements (Picnic Style)

    Perched upon a granite rock overlooking Yosemite Valley or on a secluded forest path, cover the ground with a blanket and enjoy a special picnic basket filled with everything you need to celebrate your wedding day. Toast with champagne, and then enjoy a stuffed picnic basket filled with uncommonly delicious appetizers, gourmet sides and entrees, and of course, our heavenly desserts. You choose the number of courses to include and the flavor combinations, and we provide the basket, plating, glasses, and extra-special touches. Share an idyllic picnic as your first meal together as newlyweds!
