A caterer in Manila will be able to offer you excellent food services including bards, buffets, food trucks, and food walls. From an all cupcake to an all meat food wall, here are some crafty and enticing food wall ideas for your wedding reception or debut.


Hors D’oeuvre Wall

Hors D’oeuvres are small bites that consist of one to two items. They are usually accompanied by cocktail drinks and served before dinner. Usually, a hors d’oeuvre is placed on a spoon or on linen. To make it modern and more appetizing, you can prop the hors d’oeuvre on a wooden wall instead of traditionally serving them in trays and passed on from one guest to another.


Cupcake Wall

From moist chocolate to fluffy vanilla cupcakes with colorful icing, a cupcake food wall is meant for those guests of yours who love sweets. The great thing about a cupcake wall is its colors will surely entice even a spouse who doesn’t like anything sweet. Depending on the theme of your wedding, you can either make the food wall take the shape of a rainbow with assorted colors or follow the color palette of the venue.


Chicken and Waffles

For couples who love Southern comfort food, the chicken and waffle food wall is the perfect style for you. The goal of a food wall is to either feed your guests before dinner or as an after-party snack. Chicken and waffle walls can be served both ways. Ensure the bites are enough for sustenance and not more than the amount that can make the guests want to skip the main course.


Pretzel Wall

Soft pretzels are achieved by boiling the pretzel dough before baking, with this you get a chewy interior. If you wish to serve German-style pretzels, make sure to bake the pretzels and freeze them a month before the celebration to create its best tasting form. Otherwise, head over to your local pastry shop to stock up on some delicious pretzels.


Cookie Wall

There are plenty of cookies to display and serve on your cookie wall. From milk chocolate chips, Oreos, unicorn sprinkles, triple chocolate, as well as half and half cookies, you will never run out of cookie recipes to go for. Not to mention, you can add in nuts that make a cookie taste even better for those guests who love the combination. Apart from the cookie wall, you can prop an ice cream stand so guests can create their own ice cream sandwich!


Farmer’s Market

The farmer’s market food wall is arguably one of the hardest food wall ideas to pull off due to the fresh items being served. To go about it, you can have a table right in front of the food wall where plastic knives and plates are available. This way, guests can make their own veggie and cold cut sandwiches. Make sure to serve only vegetables that can be eaten raw.


All-Meat and Cheese

Similar to a charcuterie board, the all-meat and cheese food wall is for cheese lover couples. Here are some of the meat and cheese pairings you can plate to make it easier for guests. You can ask your local chef to curate the best-looking and tasting meat and cheese accompaniments that are served in an aesthetic art form. Here are some examples of delicious meat and cheese pairings:

  • Salami and gouda
  • Proscuitto and parmesan
  • Soppressata and havarti
