Preparation

  1. Cheese tastes best at room temperature, so take your selections out of the refrigerator 2 hours before the party begins. Decorate the platters with the fruit. Serve with the bread and crackers.
  2. Note: Offer 3 different types of cheese, and label them so guests don't have to guess what they are eating and will know the name if they want to buy some for themselves.
