This was a great hit at my christmas party, I got so many compliments on it! Thanks for the excellent idea! One suggestions is to for sure use the lettuce leaves , I was trying to save time and didn't use them but ended up regretting it because the foam could show through even in small cracks and it could take hours filling in all the little holes.

I made this for a girls get together Christmas party. Everyone thought I was brilliant. Served it with cheese fondue and an asian dipping sauce (and all the other things folks brought). Very easy and a big bang for the buck. It really was beautiful and created a nice festive center piece. Thx. for posting!

Turned out great. Since I am the only pickle fanatic in the crowd, I left out the Giardiniera but used kiwi and grapes. Thanks!

So cute! I have made this for our Christmas party the last two years and set it out with the appetizers - the first year people didn't know they could eat it until I came over and took a big chunk of broccoli from it. They were tentative to eat it at first because they didn't want to wreck all my "hard work", but by the end of the night there was nothing left, and we even had to fill in bare patches a couple of times. We serve it with a few different dips - hummus, ranch, salsa, etc. so that everyone is happy. A great healthy and festive recipe.

This was so much fun to make-not at all the stress-filled afternoon experience I feared. The step-by-step photos were tremendously helpful. I also loved the opportunity to use those cute appetizer cutters that have been gathering dust on a kitchen shelf for I don't know how many years. It wasn't difficult to do and properly impressed my guests, making me look like a culinary genius. Thanks, Rita.

I made this for our Christmas Eve party and it was a hit! All I had was green broccoli but the tree was also well adorned with carrot, olives, grapes, cheese cubes and celery. Thanks for the great idea, I think I'll make an even more elaborate one next year!

I just had to comment after you were featured on the home page with this picture. I had to look up the recipe after looking at the tiny picture. Darn!! I thought it was made of cookies. Now I'm going to have to eat some veggies.

I've done this for years for our annual Christmas Party at our PUB in Ohio, except I use endive as the base and made a Garland of Shrimp which can be replenished as needed. It was always a favorite!
