How About...?

How about a topic for decorating your table, i.e. centerpieces, napkins, placements, invitations & recipes (for let's say a chocolate fondue fountain for weddings/special occasions etc.), recipes for wedding cakes, decorative ice molds, candle settings, wreaths for your dinner event. A party planning & cake decorating section. Cake decorating is quite an art & I think it will open up he forum for many experienced pastry chefs to hang out and share ideas. Why call a caterer , we can brainstorm and share here. Whaddayathink?

I can think of at least three other people who would be interested in this site:

Claire, jkath, and htc.

And I would definitely read it.

I'm thinking this would also be an "open call" to welcome and exchange ideas with caterers, party planners, cake decorators, pastry chefs & perhaps decorators as well. Particularly with the holidays just around the corner, think we can expand the forum & welcome more foodies into an already outstanding cooking site.

Where do you think that would fit? In Miscellaneous? Cookware? Or should it be a section unto itself?

So you are thinking a whole new forum. With sub fora like...

Catering to Crowds
Tablescapes
Cake Decorating

Am I getting the picture.

I think it could be a topic all to itself...for perhaps event planning/special occasions/cake decoratering (fondant, ganache ideas)/tools of the trade (re cakes), party planning/kitchen/table decor/place settings/centerpieces/ice sculptures/decorating with food. Would have to think on it a bit more for an exact breakdown.

Yes. I like it. Just don't want to see a bunch of casserole recipes to feed 50, if you know what I mean...but, hey guess that would be okay. More in line with the creative "art" of cooking and table decor. Or - brunch, ideas, whole menus? Does that make sense? Just brainstorming.

Gotcha. I will post a link to this for the Admins to check out. In the meantime...why don't you suggest more subfora? I am sure I missed a few.

Thanks, Alix. Could ask the forum for more suggestions on what people would like to share as well. Would like to see the catagory more in a professional sense rather than arts and crafts, dontcha think?
