My friend Kathy always decorated the table with a big bowl of strawberries...I had to continue the tradition this year.
I fretted and fretted over "favors" or something cute for each place setting...and in the end decided to really keep it simple.
My new trick to make a quick bowl stand is to turn one bowl upside down and set the other bowl on top of it. I have been doing that more and more lately and it worked perfectly for the sour cream in the strawberry bowl.
and, this year I lined up my strawberries and bananas in the trifle! It is so much cooler looking this way! (and probably takes 2 minutes longer!)
