Fun Fact: Presenting food attractively adds to the enjoyment of the party. Eye appeal is so important. Consider the food colors and try to have a complimentary serving dish, one that does not distract from the food. Generally, solid colors work well. Remember baskets and vases can be used to hold napkins and silverware. And a cake on a pedestal "makes a statement"!
