Butterflies are beautiful creatures in nature and they’re equally beautiful as a butterfly tray display of fruit, veggies, meats and cheeses. I wrote a blog about creating a butterfly tray a few years ago. Since then several readers have sent me photos.
Here are several uses of butterfly trays. Go ahead and create your own version of these simple ideas that require no carving.
I recently received this photo of a beautiful butterfly tray filled with an assortment of snacks from Catherine Donati. She used three different kinds of deli meats and cheeses, oranges, tomatoes, cucumbers and garnished it with strawberries, pimento-filled green olives and bread & butter pickle chips.
I went to visit a friend far away from home. She was hosting a gathering to introduce her friends. I put this together as a center piece.”
Another of my readers, Larry Slawson, sent this photo of a gorgeous fruit butterfly tray to me. Although he didn’t create it, and doesn’t know who did, we can all agree that it’s a lovely example of a butterfly tray.
We also came across this unknown example of a butterfly that appears to be used as a market or grocery store display. We wish we could give someone credit for this unique way to display produce but we don’t know the source of the photo.
If you choose to use these butterfly tray ideas for inspiration, we would love to see photos of your creations.
