Use a large round serving platter. Start with the celery, and create several zig-zaggy rows going accross.
Next, fill in the yellow peppers, saving one for the “hook” on top, then carrots, then cherry tomatoes, and you are all set!
I got the idea for this Christmas present veggie tray when I found the following little boxes at Walmart.
I bought the boxes with the inspiration for this veggie tray, but knowing I could eventually use them as gift boxes down the road.
What I did to create the present was to place all four boxes onto a larger platter, tie a nice thick ribbon around them to make them look like a present and then LINE them.
To line each box, simply open a baggie, roll the top zipper part over so it lays on the outside of the bag, and fill with the veggies. This will ensure the boxes stay dry and, the best news of all, the veggies are easy to put away once the tray is done being used!
Try this fun and popular idea with the kids this year!
To me, the very best part of making these fun trays with your kids is the fact that they are munching on veggies the whole time!
