It’s perfect for St. Patrick’s Day, of course, or any occasion asking for a fruit platter with a splash of fun. Maybe a birthday party for kids? Or for adults? Or maybe you can just make this and put it in your breakroom at work on any random Tuesday morning, and just see how people react to it. IF I could ever work in an office ever again, or even around other humans, that is exactly what I would do. I used to have a lot of fun playing breakroom pranks, or adding treasures to them. Sigh. I guess that’s the only thing I’m good at with office life. ANYWAY, after that tangent, isn’t it gorgeous? Wouldn’t you love to surprise random co-workers? Or make it for St. Patrick’s Day!
