How to arrange this platter
Start with the bowls. Your crudite platter board may include various spreads, hummuses, dressings, or other dips. Starting with the bowls acts as an anchor for the fresh vegetables. Use a variety of sizes to create some interest for your guests. The assortment of vegetables will be built around these items to create an aesthetically pleasing experience for your eyes.
Place the veggies. Fan the sliced vegetables like carrots, cucumbers around the bowls. Fill in the spaces in between the larger vegetables with smaller pieces like cauliflower florets, grape tomatoes, etc.
Add garnishes. Fill in the small spaces that are left with edible flowers or fresh herbs! Don’t forget to garnish the dips as well!
