We have an amazing fireworks display in Downtown Columbus every year: Red White & Boom. It’s really fun to entertain friends when they come down to watch from our house so this year I wanted to show off a little with my hostess style and make a festive fruit display.

Red White & Blueberries Platter


You’ll need:

  • 1 box of fresh blueberries
  • 1 box of fresh strawberries
  • 1 box yogurt pretzels (In the produce dept. So much better than the ones in the candy aisle)
  • Rectanglar cookie sheet
  • Wax Paper

Keep the blueberries in the box they come in and put them in the upper left hand corner of the wax paper covered cookie sheet. Cut the strawberries from their stems and halved. Lay out the fruit in lines to represent red stripes and the pretzels to represent the white stripes. Put toothpicks out so guests can make their own tiny skewers of fruit and pretzels!

Seriously. The yummiest.



Found the cutest maxi dress at Marshall’s to wear for the festivities. Good thing I had festive food to make up for the lack of color in my outfit!
