Opt for the Unexpected

Serve your feast in an out-of-the-way setting such as a coastal cornfield where crops grow right next to the table or at the water’s edge where guests can feel the ocean lapping at their toes. Diners will gain a new appreciation for what’s on their plates. Keep the decor simple and the food at center stage with white, clear glass, or plastic tableware.
