Impress your guests with a beautiful grazing platter loaded with delicious local and market produce that is guaranteed to keep you satisfied for hours as you catch up with family or friends AND enjoy the fact that it looks pretty amazing at the same time. What could be better?
Lucky for you, the local creative souls from C&M Creations have all your entertaining needs sorted, with everything from cheese and dessert platters to grazing tables and mixed platters for events of all sizes, even kids birthdays. We chat to the girls behind the biz, Chloe and Monique.
Hi girls! Tell us, how did you begin your business?
We initially started off making platters for our family and friends parties, we conveniently found any excuse for a get together to have a platter, and after one function a friend of ours suggested we start up a business so we thought why not give it a go.
What sets you apart from other catering and platter companies?
We try to make our platters as affordable as possible. We also cater for a range of dietary requirements such as vegetarian, lactose free and vegan options which are all available; all platters are able to be customised to suit the client. All our platter sizes are quite generous, as we have grown up in a wog family, so the amount of food we provide is important, we wouldn’t want to upset Nonna!!
What events and functions is your business best suited for?
We don’t think any event is too big or too small, so we don’t limit our services to anything in particular. It doesn’t matter if it’s just a girls night in with some wine and cheese, a work function, or to help you celebrate your wedding day. No matter what your event is, we are here to help.
How can people go about ordering a platter or grazing table?
People can head to our Facebook page, or email us for a consultation on what they are after with their patter and what the function is, we are happy to help discuss any ideas and options that may suit their event.
Most important question, what is a must have food for any platter?
Chloe: In my eyes, a platter always has to have prosciutto and lots and lots of cheese, and also be accompanied by a large glass of Moscato. A dessert platter must always have Macarons though, especially Salted Caramel…
Monique: I can’t go past some bocconcini and sundried tomatoes wrapped in salami, as well as a good-sized glass of Innocent Bystander Moscato, but chocolate-covered Strawberries are the way to go for any dessert platter.
