    Rita~'s Note:

    I used a mix of cauliflower from the gardenia mix, broccoli and boccoflower for a contrast of color. I quickly blanched the broccoli and broccoflower heads very quickly (just seconds) in salted boiling water and the chilled to brighten the color!You'll need Styrofoam cone and toothpicks. I also used a platter that has a center with with a dip basin which is not really needed.

      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.
