It’s always a bittersweet time of year for us, the beginning of December, when soccer ends for my husband (Varsity Coach) and it’s time for the end-of-year party.
After all, he spends 4 solid months with these young men, devoting many hours developing their soccer skills and coaching them through the game.
We hosted the party in our home this year, with a dessert potluck. (A peek in our home with all the shoes that came off.)
“Desserts” took the “stress” off of us with busy schedules – and this time of year it’s an easy option.
My friend Cynthia came with a healthy approach – a beautiful tray of fresh fruit.
I love her display – it wasn’t brought in a plastic bag, but whole fruit, ready to slice and serve.
I since followed her idea when we went to a party.
Snipping a few lemon tree branches …
Adding a remnant of ribbon.
Then tying it up.
Sometimes it’s all about a pretty presentation.
So out the door – to the next party with a “healthy” spin on desserts.
I recently brought cookies to a party, adding in cherries and blackberries.
It actually makes me feel better when I’m bringing fruit. And I think people love the versatility.
What do you think about bringing fresh fruit to a “dessert party?”
