Are you looking for a beautiful table centerpiece that everyone can eat? Here is an idea for a beautiful winter fruit bowl for you:
The idea is to use a variety of winter fruits that have a variety of shapes and colors. Rinse and dry the fruits and keep them refrigerated until ready to assemble and serve in the bowl. It is a good idea to use a knife and cutting board on the side so people can cut them into pieces or share them. If you are using oranges it is a good idea to have a bowl to collect the peels. You can also peel them prior to service.
Watch your guests and family members discuss which apple they like best or try to guess what a persimmon is or the best way to take apart a pomegranate. It is even a great idea to serve fruit as dessert!
Here is our list:
- Apples - green and red
- Pears - green, brown, and red
- Oranges - soft peel such as tangerines or clementines
- Grapes - dark and seedless
The variety is always nice to break the ice and encourage sharing and conversation at the table. We would use these fruit bowls as centerpieces or for a dessert table.
You can use a trifle bowl or a cake plate. Check out this article for using fruit platters as desserts.
