Classic '90s appetizer set up, with fruit and vegetables cascading from a six foot tipped boat with nautical props and tropical floral accents.
The picture below (also faded) was a luau at a large home for a birthday party. We served the food family style on big platters to guests, resting them on the fruit garnished tables. Everyone enjoyed tropical tastes including a whole roasted pig. I remember it was hot that day too. I guess with warm weather is just around the corner...it's hard for me not to think about tropical entertaining!
