    Wow! I can't wait to try this! Do you have a bouquet made from fruit...the kiddos would really like that! I love the veggies though! Now I want to have a wine tasting party (everyone brings 2 bottles of the same wine and a dish that complements it or comes from the same region) and this will be part of my hosting foods!
