  1. Select serving boards or platters to suit ingredients.
  2. Place larger items and prepapred recipes on boards first, making them the focal point of your platter. 
  3. Add bowls of nuts, yogurts and dips.
  4. Add other small elements such as boiled egg halves, berries, fruit, veggies and crackers to fill in the gaps around the main plates. 
  5. To finish your platter add decorative flourishes such as fresh herbs or edible flowers.


  • Whenever possible work with odd numbers of similar items, such as three small bowls of dips.
  • When it comes to dishes, anything goes - from your Nan's old cake tin to ceramic ramekins or clean jars from the back of the cupboard!
  • Try popping chopped veggies on skewers or creating fruit shapes with cookie cutters.
