a 1940's party (part 3)

our description of the 1940's party continues, with this post focusing on the fruit and cheese display. due to the colorful and textural nature of the "fruit and cheese forest," we oftentimes choose to separate this portion of a buffet from the remainder of the food. in that way, guests can appreciate it from all sides.

accompanied by toasted and seasoned flatbreads, pita crisps, and sliced baguette, an assortment of European and American cheeses were presented together with port-wine stewed medjool dates, and a delicious rosemary-infused fig spread.

the highlight for most guests-- young and old alike-- however, remains the fruit and cheese forest. in this instance, if you look closely, you can see some army men creeping through the trees-- a fact greatly appreciated by our friend and client's nephew!
