Versatile Macarons

If you follow along on this website, then you know I like to use food for more than just eating. It actually serves as an excellent decoration, game piece, gifts, and an even organizational purpose. In the past I’ve given you ideas on how to decorate your shelves with margaritas, repurpose a vintage buffet as a donut bar, and even an edible paint tutorial. Simply stated, food is versatile.

There is no more versatile piece of food than the macaron cookie. Not only is this one of the better tasting desserts, it can serve multiple purposes. As today’s stylized party displays, macarons can serve as escort cards, favors, and sculpture-esque centerpieces. So if you are looking for a fun (and easy) way to incorporate these delightful cookies into your next event, take a page out of this group of vendors’ book. Grab one of our macaron recipes here and get some insight into this fun theme from photographer Stacy Anderson:

This fun in the sun summer styled wedding shoot was all about pops of color, flamingos, and with a vintage touch so keep it elegant. Gone are the days of boring old white china for weddings! We opted for a gorgeous vintage Royal Dalton china (with matching tea set) and with the help of Innovative Linens and Kemah Flower Company, this tablescape came together. This would be the perfect look if you’re planning on having a brunch nuptials, or a daytime wedding. And what wedding could be complete without a cake? Good Gosh Ganache made the sweetest 3 tiered cake (complete with flamingo bride and groom of course) along with pineapple macarons, and meringues. Meringues are the perfect accessory for any wedding because of their versatility! You can have them match any color, flavor, or like we did here – pattern them on the bottoms!
