Event Spotlight: High Wire Doughnuts
Our client approached us wanting a creative, quirky and cocktail-style breakfast party. We were immediately excited to get started on this event!
The client wanted a really fun and imaginative way to display doughnuts because the guest of honor loved doughnuts. So, we brainstormed possible ways to display these tasty breakfast treats and dubbed the event “High Wire Doughnuts”.
The BG team constructed a “high wire” custom copper display unit where we hung dozens of doughnuts for guests to admire…and eat!
Since it was clear this wouldn’t be a typical breakfast event, we wanted to add even more interesting ways to display our food. In lieu of the typical fruit display, we created a fun, deconstructed Berry Bar by filling vintage apothecary jars with fresh strawberries, blueberries and raspberries.
What the client really loved about this event was the juxtaposition of the modern white and plexi with the vintage jars
The menu included tray-passed breakfast hors d’oeuvres, which were as inspiring as they were delicious. They included:
- Petite Chicken and Waffles
- Mini Potato Latkes
- Sausage and Biscuits
- Baked Eggs in Mini Bacon Cups
- Caramelized Onion and Egg Quesadillas
- Hanging Homemade Doughnuts
- Fresh Berry Bar
- Yogurt and Granola Panna Cotta
We also offered guests refreshing tray-passed mocktails, because what’s a brunch event without some fruit beverages?
The awesome sight of hanging doughnuts sure made guests hungry, and we saw lots of full stomachs and happy faces. Overall, this event was a smash hit.
