Food is all about visual appeal. Shapes, sizes, height and colour can transform something from looking bland to looking amazing.
With summer being the season of fruit you can make a simple fruit platter spectacular. Look for fruit with contrasting colours, cut each different fruit in a consistent shape and size. Garnish with something bright like strawberries, raspberries and blueberries.
For something different again, cut fruit such as watermelon and pineapple into cubes and skewer with grapes. Finish off with strawberries and maybe even a marshmallow (leave that to last minute). You will be amazed how much fruit actually get eaten, especially when it is on a stick.
