I cannot express strongly enough how important presentation is whether it’s a simple dinner or a formal banquet. Something as simple as a vegetable/fruit bouquet can give your event that WOW factor. There is nothing more beautiful than using God’s palette of colors. WARNING … even though they are edible, your guests would rather look at them than eat them, so provide plenty extras on trays.

Firmly secure head of lettuce into container.
Slice off sections of cauliflower and place randomly over lettuce securing w. toothpicks.
With cookie cutters cut flower and leaf shapes out of assorted vegetables & secure onto skewers. Arrange as you would a floral bouquet using lettuce head as your anchor.
Fill in with loose kale or curly lettuce leaves.
