The holidays are a time to celebrate, and that usually means that we serve(and eat) way more sweets than we ought to. Not only goes that lead to extra weight or guilt, but eventually, it gets boring always having such an abundance of sugary treats.
I may be a lot of things, but one thing I never want to be is boring. That is something I will avoid at all costs. I change my holiday menu every year just for that very reason.
Since this year I started my path to better health(lower weight), I want to stay on track as much as possible over the holidays, which inspired me to find healthy, yet delicious options for entertaining. I found some great recipes, but I also wanted some quick and easy options for last minute guests.
That thinking gave me the perfect "excuse" to try something that I have been wanting to try for ages, Edible Arrangements. Ever since I saw one for the first time(on a commercial) I have been in love with the idea. What could be more beautiful that a bright, fresh "bouquet" of fruit?
The Reindeer Sleigh Ride Bouquet is absolutely perfect for the holidays.
When you remove the plastic, it looks even more breathtaking.
And for those that want something a little more indulgent, this arrangement features chocolate dipped pineapple reindeer.
Though it is impossible to resist the divine flavor. Just ask my daughter. My 2 year old girl LOVED this, maybe even more than I did. She literally ate about 1/3 of the arrangement. That is quite a lot for someone so small. The fact that she was so enthused about fruit was really wonderful for me. I love for her to eat anything healthy.
Another fabulous attribute of the Reindeer Sleigh Ride Bouquet is the lovely ceramic sleigh that can be used for years and years to come.
The entire arrangement is just fantastic. It makes a grand centerpiece, an amazing hostess gift and a delicious addition to any gathering. Of course it would make an epic Christmas gift for ANYONE on your list as well.
As much as I like to change up my holiday menu, I know that an Edible Arrangements Bouquet is definitely going to be a staple. Not just for Christmas either. I will be celebrating practically every holiday with Edible Arrangements now, anything that will give me an "excise" to indulge in the most amazing fruit I've ever tasted.
I love that I can order weeks in advance or even same day for last minute entertaining or gifts. I hate being invited to someone's home last minute and not having time to get the a suitable hostess gift. Now, I never have to worry. I can pop in and pick up something, or order almost any arrangement and have it ready the same day.
Even if you don't live near an Edible Arrangements location, you can have your bouquets shipped overnight and have them the very next day. Talk about convenient. If you are looking for a way to make your holiday spread a little sweeter, start with Edible Arrangements. The only regret you'll have is not trying them sooner.
