A shabby chic wedding theme offers so many choices for fantastic food! Tiered cake stands should be used for at least one course- choose to have your canapés served on these if a tower-effect won’t suit your sit down meal. Evening food can be whatever your heart desires… vintage themed fish and chips go down a treat.
