    We brought this platter to a Memorial Day picnic at my husband's work. It is such a pretty presentation and everyone, especially the kids, loved it!

    #2 Berry Kabobs

    Thread raspberries, mini marshmallows, and blackberries on small skewers, piercing the center of the fruit to secure. Arrange on a tray and serve. 
    I cut wooden skewers in half to make these cute kabobs. 
    You could also use larger fruit {strawberries, bananas} and keep them full size. 

     #3 Flag Fruit Platter

    Start with a rectangular shaped tray.
    Fill a small bowl with blueberries and place in the upper left corner.
    Add a horizontal row of cubed watermelon, then yogurt pretzels, then watermelon, and yogurt pretzels again. Serve and enjoy!
    I made this for dinner and my girls thought it was fantastic!
    It's always fun thinking of clever ways to serve them fruits and veggies!

    Remember those who have sacrificed this Memorial Day!
