At the Far Hills Steeplechase last weekend, as I watched legions of steeplechase guests stream through the boutique area, I was struck with how presentation is everything. And although, yes, I mean that on several levels… I was actually most focused on the lack of thought many guests put into the presentation of their food contribution. Your tailgate hosts have surely gone to some (often great) lengths to arrange a very refined picnic – and would rather not have the food looking straight-from-the-deli. If you are invited and nicely want to contribute to the spread (recommended) ‘plate it’ in a beautiful – ideally equestrian chic platter and bring it in a basket or an Oughton Limited tote. Presentation is everything.
