Here’s a peek at what we brought to our family Christmas celebration: a fruit tree centerpiece! It was really easy to do and my son had fun helping us assemble it. Just choose your favorite fruits and cheeses, break out the toothpicks and start in! We already had the festive Christmas tray and just had to pick up the foam tree from the craft store. It was only a few bucks and, if I had planned ahead, I could’ve used a 40% off coupon on it.
Here’s another view (after people had been snacking on it). My husband had the idea to put the top of the pineapple on the tray, too, which was a fun little addition. The star was cut from pineapple. We added the rest of the fruit and cheese on the tray as well. Next time (if we were to tackle fruit arrangements again) I’d get strawberries and larger fruits (more kiwi, for instance) to fill in some of the spaces more quickly and easily.
Here was my “fruit arrangements” inspiration at Ginger & Garlic, found via Pinterest, of course! I didn’t realize how much fruit it takes to cover that amount of real estate (much less to look as densely covered as hers). So if you think you may have enough fruit, buy more!
