There’s one thing guests always remember about a wedding — the food (was it the best meal of your life? Or was it so awful that you ordered a pizza later on?). But you don’t need a ton of fancy food to make a good impression; the presentation can transform the simplest fare into a meal worth remembering for all the right reasons. Event designer and food stylist Kim Stoegbauer of The TomKat Studio teamed up with The California Milk Advisory Board to come up with these creative ways to make your food a spectacular part of your décor.

1. Bread and Butter

Take this dinner staple up a notch with a gorgeous rustic-inspired display featuring a variety of rolls paired with honey- and herb-infused butters.
