Fruit Tray Arrangement

Sep 13th, 2010 // Breakfast, Desserts, Healthy, Lunch, Recipes, Veggie Friendly

We had friends over this weekend and it dawned on me that my kid and I have never really arranged food together. Mostly we just make the food and then he scurries off to was his hands before we sit down to dinner.

I love the way a fruit platter looks on the table especially at a brunch. It’s best if it is asymmetrical and all the fruit looks like it just kind of fell in pools onto the tray.

Although we tend to try to make things orderly, kids are really great at arranging things more randomly. Turns out my kid makes a great fruit arranger.

Funny, even after lining up these strawberries, his instinct was to then pool them together in the middle.

I think holding on to this skill might be more valuable than any recipe I could ever teach him. Does it get any more beautiful than this?
