A fruit basket is a good way to sweeten the holidays, give your hosts and guests an excellent dessert and make sure there are no disappointments.
You can make it yourself and add a personal touch and most of all you save money.
So how do you make a fruit basket? Here are some ideas:
1. Buy a nice plate or bowl and fill it with fruit. This way you will also be giving a nice object as a gift.
2. Use a straw basket– it has a more natural look and is usually less expensive than ceramic ware.
3. Make a bouquet of fruit by sticking the fruit on skewers which you put in a vase. You can also mix in chocolates on skewers.
* You can add a set of special glasses for fruits, a bottle of wine, chocolates, and the like…
