  • Usually four corners and the middle, but kind of staggered. Then place a few small bowls where the olives and honey will go. 
  • Then start adding the meat around and start placing the fruit. You can move things around, but once you have the placement of cheese and bowls, it starts to come together!
  • Starting with the large fruit is good. Place some grapes around, then take a handful of berries and fill in the blank spots, toss in some almonds, add some figs.
