Greetings All,

Just wanted to remind all you hostesses to get photo's of your food for your parties. We sure could use a lot more pictures of our food spreads. After Halloween we could make an album of food pictures, it sure would help other members to be able to see what some of these spreads look like!

Advice: Since its the most craziest time just before your guests arrive & you are putting your food out, either have your camera ready to go or have a friend that will take the photo's for you.

this is an excellent idea and if we could take pictures of not just the whole spread, but maybe individual items that are esecially good then we could have a thread with a breakdown of different food categories, drinks, appetizers, main course, desserts, soups and those could event get broken down that would help out a lot of people who are new or just wanting a specific idea.

great idea, everyone is always on the lookout for new recipes or new ways of displaying the food. we took heaps of photos of our food last year before it disappeared, would love to see how everyone else chooses to display their different recipes

I almost always forget to take pics of the food. In 2007 and 2008, I kept a camera in the kitchen with me, and took pics while I was preparing it. That way I also had pics of how I made things, for my future recipe page. Half the time, we always end up getting pictures of the leftovers.... Not as visually stimulating LOL

It was a heavenly raspberry trifle with heavy cream under the "Kitty Litter" that a good friend made... We got to keep a large portion of it since there seemed to be so much left over. :D It was delicious!

This is a great idea. Even for the older members to get new inspiration I reckon.
I love seeing how everyone displays their food in such a lovely manner.
