Buffet Ideas | Having Fun with Fruit & Veggie Displays
Fruit & Vegetable Baskets, Platters and Displays
I love Buffets! And, new buffet ideas are something I am always on the lookout for -- a new or different way to display foods -- especially fruits and vegetables.
I thought it might be fun to share some of the fruit and veggie displays I have made over the years as well as others I have run across on the internet. Some are complete works of art made by chefs but there are plenty that are just gorgeous in their own right and might work for you.
Mixture of Fruits and Veggies Displayed on a Buffet - Buffet Ideas
This is a large vegetable, fruit and cheese display for a 50th birthday party we did. I love the pineapple palm tree with the munchies at the base. I always loved this design and thought it was very impressive!
The amount you need will be dependent on the size of your guest list, theme (if you have one) and making it unique. For parties and gathers at a home, I have found that veggie or fruit baskets work wonderfully!

Veggie Basket for Smaller Buffet - Perfect for most any small affair
The two bowls in this vegetable basket are small pedestal bowls or compotes. They will hold 2 different kinds of vegetable dip (ranch and dill) for guests to chose from.

Dark Stained Willow Basket - Buffet Ideas - Fruit and Veggie Displays
This is a 20" x 14" basket. It's very similar to the basket I used for the veggie display pictured above (it was 24" x 14"). I was making the basket to feed about 35 people.
Natural Seagrass Basket - Makes a Lovely Fruit and/or Vegetable Basket Display
This natural seagrass basket is eco-friendly and beautiful. It would be perfect filled with fruit and/or vegetables for any party.
As always with baskets, be sure to line with fabric so food does not come in contact with the basket itself.
The wire frame makes it sturdy for holding the ice and food. After the party, use it for a centerpiece, holding crafts like knitting or cross stitch supplies or fill with throws to keep close at hand for a chilly evening.
Very versatile — on and off the buffet table!
Get the Set of 3 - You'll have the size you need, when you need it!
The large basket is 17" and the small is 12". This way, you get 3 sizes to choose from so you have enough fruits and veggies for the party size.
You can also put veggies in one basket and fruits in another to have more munchies! The set of 3 is a great option.

One way to make your veggie or fruit basket go along with a certain theme is to use a dip bowl that reflects that theme. Fun, too!
Set of 2 Seashell Dip Bowls
Perfect for a beach, luau or tropical themed party. Think birthdays, graduations, rehearsal dinners, anniversaries and more!
Patriotic Dip Bowl - Buffet Ideas
This one is perfect for Memorial Day BBQ's, 4th of July picnics, Labor Day or Vetran's Day get-togethers. This even works at Christmas time for my parents. It matches their Patriotic Christmas Tree and stockings!

This is so cute! This dip bowl has a lid that looks like the sand in the sand pail. A shovel handle is on the spreader. 3 piece set - bowl, lid and spreader.
