What's not to love about food bars? Not only will guests love the food, but the presentation is gorgeous too. Check out these savory food bars that are sure to add flavor to your reception.
Instead of having caterers walk around with trays, create a beautiful food bar of appetizers, like this one by Heirloom LA. A spread of local, organic bite-sized goodies like beets with corn and snap peas or miniature cups of soup will do the trick.
