  • Knives
  • Spoons

Instructions:

  1. Pick an appropriate sized board or tray
  2. Shop in your own pantry for garden. Get seasonal!

  4. Support with meats, fruits, veggies, crackers, spreads between the larger items
  5. Tip: Fold or roll soft meats to create interest and height
  6. Place items in casual piles, neat spreads or both!
