Buffet Ideas | Having Fun with Fruit & Veggie Displays


Fruit & Vegetable Baskets, Platters and Displays

I love Buffets! And, new buffet ideas are something I am always on the lookout for -- a new or different way to display foods -- especially fruits and vegetables.

I thought it might be fun to share some of the fruit and veggie displays I have made over the years as well as others I have run across on the internet. Some are complete works of art made by chefs but there are plenty that are just gorgeous in their own right and might work for you.

Maybe you will be inspired and come up with a display that will WOW your guests at your next birthday party, bridal or baby shower, graduation party, family reunion or holiday gathering!

This is a large vegetable, fruit and cheese display for a 50th birthday party we did. I love the pineapple palm tree with the munchies at the base. I always loved this design and thought it was very impressive!

The amount you need will be dependent on the size of your guest list, theme (if you have one) and making it unique. For parties and gathers at a home, I have found that veggie or fruit baskets work wonderfully!
