An upscale event may include five-star catering, wine tastings and white-glove service. For those who wish to outdo even the most elegant affair, just add a bit of caviar to the mix. Caviar, or sturgeon roe, is a timeless symbol of luxury. At a private event last month in New York, Petrossian, the world’s largest caviar supplier known for its high-end restaurants and gourmet food products, unveiled three of its newest caviar offerings. Read on to discover the most luxurious ways to include these delicacies at your next event or party.

1. Hire The “Caviar Girl” To Serve H’orderves

To add a playful element to your soiree, have your servers wear fun costumes. Serving h’orderves and cocktails by a costume-clad waitstaff will make a lasting impression on guests and instantly create an entertaining atmosphere. Petrossian has introduced the “Caviar Girl,” a hostess who walks through the room offering single servings of caviar, alongside a flute of Citron vodka, to guests. Wearing a costume inspired by the iconic 1920s cigarette girl, she is equipped with a vodka holster around her hips and a specially designed fiberglass tray to hold three of the most popular caviars.

Note To Buyers: Petrossian has future plans to make the “Caviar Girl” available for special events and at select New York restaurants, according to a brand representative. For more information, contact Petrossian at (800) 828-9241 or e-mail customersupport@petrossian.com.

2. Create A Caviar Tasting Table

If you have a taste for opulence (and an unlimited budget), invest in a massive quantity of caviar for guests to enjoy. Petrossian produces the world’s largest tin of caviar, which recently became available on the American market. Called Ivan the Terrible®, the colossal tin contains 10 kilograms of Tsar Impérial® caviar. The price varies and is available upon request, but this might give you an idea: 1 kilogram of Petrossian Tsar Impérial® Ossetra Caviar costs $5,600, so a 10 kilogram tin may go for $56,000 or more. Petrossian also offers smaller quantities: Grande Catherine®, which contains 5 kilograms of Tsar impérial® caviar, and Juste Alexandre®, which contains 2.5 kilograms of Tsar Impérial® caviar. Watch as your guests marvel over the grand display of glistening black delicacies.

Note To Buyers: Petrossian invites purchasers of Ivan the Terrible® to an exclusive caviar tasting at the Petrossian headquarters in Paris, hosted by one of Petrossian’s tasting specialists. After sampling the world’s finest caviar, the owner selects their favorite variety of caviar. Ivan the Terrible® is filled with their caviar of preference and hand-delivered to their desired location with white-glove service by private jet.
