I know all too well from personal experience that when you or someone in the house suffers from food allergies, life gets pretty complicated. Grabbing a bite to eat while out and about, or even celebrating at parties can be almost impossible without taking your own food along or taking a considerable amount of time to check ingredients...usually then coming up emply handed.
With more and more children, and adults, displaying signs of food intolerences and allergies Whimsy Petite Styling is very conscious of having clients check with their guests if they have special dietary needs so that we may include suitable foods for them in our catering, leaving them to relax and enjoy the celebration with everyone else. We also label foods accordingly so ease confussion of whats safe for them to consume on the table.
I came across a great little business with the same understandings you may want to check out! Allergy Riders founder Amy Dowling, has created a range of cupcake papers and food flags ideal for the hostess looking to ensure all of her guests are catered for safely, and without confussion. Included in the range are tags for gluten free, egg free, dairy free, vegan, nut free and various combinations of "free" foods.
What a great idea!
