The vegetable platter tray above is a very subtle twist but by using the eggplant as a dip bowl creates a bit of a wow factor. By layering the vegetables on top of purple and green kale it creates a stunning and elegant presentation. We also love the crackers in the pretty container and the scale is a very nice touch as well. Beautiful display if we do say so ourselves.

Food doesn’t always have to be gourmet or fancy in order for people to really enjoy it and make it memorable. Creating a stylish food presentation is what really makes your party stand out and also creates a great conversation piece for your guests to mingle and chit chat about your hard work that went into putting everything together.
