Vegetable Christmas tree
Serve your raw vegetable tray the Christmassy way. Use broccoli florets to create a Christmas tree shape and add grape or cherry tomatoes as ornaments. You can also add strips of yellow pepper as fairy lights. Cut a star shape out of yellow pepper to use on top of your tree. Use a handful of pretzel sticks (or a piece of celery stalk) as a tree trunk. Finally, put a touch of cauliflower flowers under the tree as snow. What a fun way to showcase an after school snack or your range of raw vegetables for a class party.
