3. Terracotta Tastes – Budget-Friendly Catering

Look up nearby caterers

To save costs, we can research local caterers and their costs to find more affordable options. Don’t forget to ask if there are any package deals or discounts for multiple guests. In terms of catering methods, generally speaking, self-service or family-style catering services are more economical because they can save part of the plate cheaper.

DIY Food Stations

Set up food stations based on clay to create interactivity. A few handmade bouquets and some simple tablecloths will do wonders.

You can have cheaper items on your menu, such as bruschetta, caprese skewers, or a vegetable tray with hummus. Just because a meal is cheap doesn’t mean it doesn’t taste good, just try it before ordering.

Terracotta Color Palette

Just one color won’t look good at a wedding, so let’s tweak the terracotta color scheme and coordinate it with your accessories. Bright toppings like peppers and cheese can be used to add color. For toppings, use terracotta-toned plates or platters to match the color scheme.

Signature Terracotta Drinks

Do you also like cocktails? Let us design a signature cocktail that goes with the terracotta theme. For example, citrus flavors, or peach drinks. You can never go wrong with cocktails, and if you serve drinks in terracotta-colored glasses, this color combination will make your wedding even more beautiful.
