You may recall I styled food for The TomKat Studio not too long ago for a Girls’ Night In. Well, today I’m switching gears and sharing a Vintage Circus Birthday Party we collaborated on for Zoes Kitchen. Check out the pictures and scroll through for some food styling tips that helped bring this party to life.
Think on your feet. Sometimes I’m asked to dress up food beyond the traditional ingredients. For these mini sandwiches, I used some parchment paper I had on hand and twine from The TomKat Studio. It’s a simple way to add interest to sandwiches without running back to the store.
A spritz is all you need. Fruit can begin to look dry really fast. Give it a mist with a spray bottle filled with water. You can also coat it lightly with cooking spray to make the shine stick around longer.
Have a steamer handy. Cookies with chocolate can look like they’ve come straight out of a box. Bring it back to life by holding it under a steamer briefly.
Freeze before cutting. When I’m cutting any cake or dessert bar, I like to freeze it first, so the cuts come out cleaner. Less crumbs result in better pictures.
