Easy Holiday Entertaining
I received the Planter Nuts featured in this post from Planters/Kraft. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
With the holidays upon us I thought it was a good time to share one of my favorite Easy Holiday Entertaining ideas.
I like to place whole fruit around a cake stand with a bowl in the center filled with Planter Cashew Halves and Pieces, another bowl of Planters Mixed Nuts to the side and a cheese and cracker tray.
With a minimum of two varieties of nuts and a large selection of fruit and cheese there's usually something for everyone and perfect for a crowd.
The nuts provide pleanty of protein for those of us who might have missed lunch and to tide our company over until dinner, perfect for snacking.
For the fruit I prefer grapes, small mandrin oranges, pears and apples.
By leaving the fruit whole it prevents waste from browning and can be cut or peeled when they are ready to be eaten.
The fruit and nuts also makes for a gorgeous edible center piece to the table.
Don't forget to put out the good stuff this holiday season! With their unique combination of good fats, dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals, nuts make a delicious healthy choice for any Holiday gathering.
I love the quality of Nuts Planters provides and the easy to use packaging for serving.
The cashews were salted to perfection and are always a family favorite. They never last long.
I love knowing the quality of Planters Cashews are always dependable.
