Florals may be beautiful, but what’s more welcoming than a table overflowing with antipasti?
Make appetizers the star of the holiday tablescape this year! Flower arrangements are lovely, but a centerpiece of antipasti can be a true thing of beauty. Plus – it serves a function… to eat!
The vibrant colors of antipasti lend themselves to the season: bright reds of tomatoes, marinated peppers and salame alongside green olives and basil make for a festive spread all on their own. The beauty of it is that antipasti requires no cooking! Head to your favorite deli for freshly sliced cured Italian meats, and hit the grocery store for assorted jarred goods, such as peppers, olives and sundried tomatoes. Finish it off with your favorite cheeses, crackers, and some basil to really bring the beauty.
Let your guests graze and take advantage of the welcoming comfort that a bountiful spread of food brings! Bonus? You just covered the appetizer course. Easy!
