Charcuterie, Cheese & Fruit Plates

I saw a post on Pinterest from which inspired me to go with many prepared platters for our New Year ’s Eve party. I went a little bigger than planned but I am happy with the outcome. There was seriously a little bit of everything. I think the best way would be to list everything that was laid out on the table and then you can decide what inspires you for your next party. We also served 5 types of Pizzas that we picked up from Grazie’s Italian Restaurant in Upland. Meat lovers, Pepperoni, Vegetarian, Mexican, and Canadian Bacon/Pineapple. We figured by midnight everyone would get a second wind.
