Martha Stewart Weddings
Upgrade your passed hors d’ oeuvres with color and texture! I saw this image in the Fall 2008 issue of Martha Stewart Weddings and thought it was a great idea. Do this at home to wow the guests at your next party (maybe Thanksgiving or Holiday Party). Here, they have used cucumber strips, coarse salt, and chives to decorate the plate. The background color adds so much, I can’t even imagine a plain white platter anymore!
