Patriotic Platter

This whole week I have been focusing on the 4th of July. Such as accents and food. Yesterday Patriotic Pillows and today, a Patriotic Platter. I love finding ideas and giving ideas on one of my FAVORITE holidays. Today is a FUN one! You can make this as big or as small as you want. Going to a BBQ? Family Reunion? Or just staying home and celebrating with your family? Either way this platter brings in the spirit of FREEDOM! Have an instant flag for decoration and a delicious appetizer to share! I decided to keep the white lines of the "flag" string cheese which are already LINES, you can cut them up and people can grab one with a tooth pick! I also kept the strawberries whole instead of cutting them up. You never know how long this will sit. I didn't want everything to dry out, so I kept everything as close to its natural state as possible. Fill up a platter, fill up a cookie sheet or make a small plate! Make it the size that best suits you and your appetite.
