peter callahan shares how he includes monograms at his celebrated events

Peter Callahan, Creative Director of Peter Callahan Catering, shared with us some unique ways to incorporate your monogram into your next celebration. Above, mini reuben sandwiches are topped off with monogrammed pendants. Below, Peter  puts monograms in the bottom of drink trays with a sheet of acrylic over the top to personalize cocktail serving. He also adds monograms on mini take out food boxes that he puts spicy chicken fortune cookies in. You can personalize most anything from mini pizza boxes to cones for frites! As you can see, there are several ways you can display your monogram- with a single initial, two initials, or  three initials. You can also add the date of the event along with your monogram or an icon like Peter added on the pendant above.

Peter is so creative, his catering company is a culinary design studio focused on producing experiential events and products never seen before. Peter is known for is custom styling of events and his fun bite size foods.

If you have the opportunity to hire his company for an event- you’ll be so blown away with his talent- I promise! Visit his site to see more ideas & inspiration.
