5 Clever Décor Ideas for Your Foodie Fête

The theme of your gathering is food, so what better way to celebrate the joy of cuisine than with food-focused décor elements? Here are five easy and elegant décor ideas for your decadent dinner.

Wine cork place cards or menu cards. Flatten a wine cork and slice a fine line in the center. Then use the cork to prop up place cards or cards labeling menu items. Use a fountain pen to handwrite the names to add extra flourish.

Fruit centerpieces. Fill large glass jars of varying sizes and shapes with in-season fruits. Group fruits of the same color together for monochromatic appeal.

Wheat grass or herb planters. Place small terra cotta or tin planters filled with fresh herbs or edible grasses at serving stations or as a centerpiece on the dining table. A sprig of fresh mint to enjoy with my blueberry shortcake? Don't mind if I do!

Hollowed-out fruit vases. Scoop out a melon, citrus fruit or other piece of sturdy, in-season produce and fill with a plant or single bloom.

Mason jar wine glasses. Get eco-chic by rinsing out the mason jars that stored the sauces, fruits, or other foods served at dinner and re-use them as wine glasses or drink tumblers!
