Summer Fruit Platter

I put this fruit platter together in less than 5 minutes…and that’s a good thing!

When Summer time rolls around, I just want to be outside getting my tan on. I’m sure it’s the same for you! This fruit platter is quick while still serving as a beautiful presentation. All it takes is

  • Sliced watermelon
  • Sliced pineapple
  • Mandarin oranges
  • Strawberries
  • Carnations/carnation petals for good measure

Seriously — how easy is that? Take it to the beach, the park, a friends house, a pool party…wherever!
