Summer is on it’s way and for us on the Coast that means weekends spent with lazy mornings at the beach, followed by catching up with friends or family.
At The Freedom State we are lucky enough to be located at the base of one of the Gold Coast’s most popular destinations for doing both; Burleigh Headland. Locals and visitors can relax at one of Australia’s best beaches, then a short stroll takes them to the the grassy slopes towards Burleigh National Park where they can spend the afternoon watching the waves roll in from the edge, or have fun on a rug with family and friends taking in the afternoon vibes.
One thing we had noticed on the hill, were the oh-so popular food platter ‘spreads’ people were enjoying for parties they were having. And thanks to the Spell Designs team making these a constant at their events, girls are LOVING this idea, and we were completely familiar with it after having our very own platter spread for our collaboration with Amuse Society this year.
So being the regular Burleigh Hill adventurers ourselves, we decided to track down a local business who we hoped would make platters for on the go. That's when we found the darling Brodie from Guilty Pleasure Platters! And Platter Boxes are her thing (along with large events and other occasions as well!) This got us so excited, as it doesn’t matter if you are hanging out locally or going to a bbq at a friends house, we can now make socialising easy and fun for all. Let us do all the work (well, Brodie – below).
So, starting from October until March locals and visitors can now do away with lugging eskies of food, can do away with cutlery and plates, or having to walk away from your gathering for a bite. Thanks to Brodie we can bring you AMAZING grazing Platters Boxes to order in store or online and pick up from our Showroom across from Burleigh Beach. Plus, there are options!
For a couple who may just want to spend the afternoon enjoying an intimate vino together, we have boxes for 1-2 people.
The Small Boxes come with an assortment of dips, biscuits, cheeses, salami pops, fresh and dried fruits and something sweet for a couple to graze on. And everything is completely disposable and recyclable for when it’s time to leave. So easy! How much fun to just hop on your bike with a bottle of wine, 2 glasses and a rug for the afternoon!
Speaking of rugs, we have the most amazing picnic rugs by Wandering Folk in store. Get yours now! Georgia is carrying hers below.
So if you are making a day of it to catch up with friends, we have Medium and Large Platter Boxes. Simply get everyone to chip in and they will love not having to worry about what to take for the day. All you have to do is make a short walk to the Showroom to pick your Box up. These are perfect to take away for a gathering elsewhere too. Everyone will love you!
And we didn’t mention; every Platter Box order receives a $15 Store voucher in The Freedom State? Even better value.
Our Medium Boxes are great for 2-4 people to graze on. It’s amazing how much food can fit into one box. And Brodie ensures everything remains perfect for pick up, as all the boxes have a lid and are refrigerated in store. Oh did we mention the bamboo cutlery she provides? Cute!
If you making this a big day and a large group, make it easy on everyone and choose the Large Box. Brodie suggests this is perfect for 4-6 people, and you will be surprised how much you fill up when you are grazing.
LARGE FRUIT BOXES
And we are in LOVE with the Large Fruit Platters, and so do the kids. These are great for around 8 people. Think about the festive season approaching and all the gatherings you will attend. These Boxes are perfect to take along, and they look great as well.
Brodie also makes dietary requirements easy if you have any. Vegetarians and Vegans; we got your back.
So this Summer, make the most of our beautiful coast by making socialising that little bit easier for yourselves. Let us do the work for you so your time with friends and family is fun and carefree. Whether it be a day on the Hill locally, to take home for an easy bbq with family, or a festive season gathering.
Make a note to us if there are any dietary requirements, or call us on 07) 5535 4000
Make sure this is on the Friday beforehand so Brodie has time to prepare your order.
Contact us if you wish to chat further about other events.
