Orange Cranberry Edible Holiday Wreath

Orange Cranberry Edible Holiday WreathNeed a fun fruit platter idea for Christmas morning or a healthier display for a holiday party? This edible orange cranberry wreath is easy to put together and perfect for any Christmas food spreads! Oranges are one of our favorite fruits during the holiday season (while citrus is in season). And, even though we have a backyard with three orange trees, we just can’t resist the little easy-to-eat and easy-to-peel mandarin oranges. So, I was thrilled to partner with Halos for another year on a sponsored #HalosFun edible creation. Halos MandarinsWe have a plate full of these tasty little oranges every Christmas morning!

Placing that second layer of orange segments made a big difference in the look! Really, you could embellish with anything you like. But, given the holiday season, I thought cranberries would pair well. I put a few on in little groups of three (somewhat reminiscent of holly berries on wreaths) and then I decided to add a holiday bow. I made that out of pull-apart licorice just for something a little fun (a fruit roll-up would work well too! Edible Christmas WreathI love the way it turned out –a festive, fun platter for sure!
