make a Great Fruit Basket for your dinner parties and wedding parties.

For entertaining guests or for a particular event, the presentation of a table should always be done with care.  The presentation of the fruit basket is one of them, so it is necessary to make a beautiful composition.  Like a seductive game, the visual appeal of food always comes first.  Here are some ideas and guidelines to help you succeed in your presentation for your fruit baskets.

How to Make the Fruit Basket

First, you can choose from a wicker, glass, or metal basket.  The wicker basket is best suited for a better and prettier presentation.
Choose it based on the fruits that you will have to present.  So don’t choose a tiny basket if you plan to offer a whole watermelon! We must keep appropriate proportions.
You need a basket big enough, either oval, round or rectangular, and again, it depends on the fruit you plan to put in it.

Preparation of the basket

Take a few vine leaves, wash them and dry them gently.
Place them at the bottom of your container.
Spread them by making them overflow on both sides of your basket, so they are visible once the basket is filled.

The choice of fruit

You must first sort the fruits according to their size, then select the most beautiful ones and wipe them with a soft cloth for polishing.

Sort the fruit in the basket

Start by having the largest fruit at the bottom of the basket.  On each side, put pineapple, in the middle will be red and yellow apples, oranges, pears, mandarins, kiwis, and bananas.
The small red fruits like strawberries, raspberries, and dates will be used to fill holes, but do it gently.  Finally, end with beautiful bunches of grapes.
If desired, add some grape leaves for a dazzling effect.  Have as much fruit as you want so you get a nice array of colors.

Tips and Tricks to Make a Fruit Basket

Choose ripe and firm fruit.  You can put a cork piece at the bottom of the basket so it will absorb moisture, which will prevent the fruit from spoiling.

If your basket has a handle, you can decorate it with some grapes and roll it around.
You may also include pasta with candied fruit or almond paste for a smooth and original finishing touch.
