When you are entertaining, the presentation of what you are serving is just about as important as the taste of the food. Your guest love to see that you've taken the time to put that extra special touch on your meal or party.
Last July, I picked up these great red, white and blue serving dishes at a HUGE discount from Hobby Lobby. (I think that they were 90% off....Who can turn that down?) I knew I'd be able to use them for something and got these two, plus another smaller serving pedestal. Aren't they a perfect statement on the table for the Fourth?
The ice cream sandwiches have been wrapped neatly in waxed paper and then secured with a piece of red polka dot washi tape. They should be okay for a short time on your table, but to increase the length of time before the ice cream starts to melt, leave your plate in the refrigerator before serving.
Since the ice cream sandwich cookies are mixed berry, I added some raspberries to the display as well as a bowl full for the guest who may prefer a healthier dessert.
