Earlier this year we were honored to partner with Ettie Berneking at 417 Bride to create an article on the trend of wedding s’mores. The Winter/Spring issue came out a few months ago, so we thought it was time to share our ideas with you!
Here’s what we had to say:
Basic ingredients and necessities: graham crackers, chocolate, marshmallows, roasting sticks and fire. If you want to bring in some local flare, use Askinosie Chocolate and marshmallows from Elle’s Patisserie.
Creative twists: There are many inventive set-ups, like s’mores in a jar, which uses graham cracker crumbs, chocolate pudding and marshmallows.
What could this replace at the reception? This would make for a fun groom’s cake. Another way to highlight the treat is to have a smaller cake for the bride and groom and serve the s’mores bar for the guests.
Tips from the experts: Go for a rustic look with fire pits, wooden skewers and wooden serving plates. Or add a modern feel with stainless stell skewers, white or glass serving plates and rock fire pits or candlelight.
The scoop on the trend: Not only can you make s’mores bars pretty, but they’re also an inexpensive way to spice up your wedding decor by adding a homey feel to your event.
