Do you have a favorite fruit!?! Nice and I’m glad you asked; mango is a personal favorite of ours. Mostly because of it’s delicious ness, but also because it’s gorgeous hue! I mean that golden color is just divine. Keeping with our food theme of style and ease, we thought we’d touch on a dessert menu item.
When it comes to cocktail style parties, where people are generally up and moving around; we like to serve miniature or bite size items. It lets guests try lots of things and keeps your display festive and fun. Nothing is more drab that a half served tray of something!
