Day 5: It's the Little Things

There's nothing wrong with a veggie tray. Nothing at all.

If you're in a time pinch, and need it already assembled it's a huge help. But, you know how the ends of celery are always kind of white and stringy? And everything is just stuffed into the plastic pockets? Yea, I'm not a huge fan of plastics.

It takes just a few minutes to trim the celery up and display it on another tray. I added the asparagus to give it a little more of a posh look. And I scooped the dip into another small bowl, to take away the plastic look and feel completely.

The outcome? An artsy, fresh display of tasty veggies.

Same story with the fruit tray. Throw the plastic tray it came in into the recyclable bin. Arrange on a pretty tray, with a little height and color variation, and all of a sudden, you've gone from ordinary "party trays" to outstanding presentation!

Same thing with the dessert. And the chips.

And anything else you feel like tossing in the recyclable bin at the moment. See you tomorrow, as long as you haven't thrown your computer in the recyclable bin.
