Christmas tree centrepieceReviewed by our expert panel
(at time of publication)
- about 30 cocktail sticks or toothpicks and 1 kebab stick
- 1 apple
- 1 small cucumber
- 6 green kiwifruit
- 20 blueberries
- 20 strawberries
- 1 round slice of orange
- 10 fresh mint leaves
1 Slice top and bottom off apple and discard. Place apple on a small platter. Cut an end off cucumber and place cut end on apple. Secure it with a kebab stick.
2 Cut kiwifruit in squares. Place each square on a toothpick and attach to cucumber structure from the bottom up, largest pieces first. Use toothpicks to attach strawberries and blueberries to form a cone to make it look like a Christmas tree.
3 Cut a star out of the orange slice and attach it on top of the fruit tree. Scatter mint leaves on platter. Place at the centre of the table.
- Instead of blueberries, use blackberries or black grapes.
- A star cut out of a melon will work well, too.
A bowl of nuts in their shells (macadamias, almonds, walnuts) makes a great centrepiece, too — especially if you paint the shells green, red, white, silver and gold.
