So now that you have your Mishloach Manos and Costumes all taken care of (gulp) we can turn our attention towards the seudah.
Purim gives us a unique opportunity to unleash our creativity with a bit of a funky twist. Most of our holiday meals are formal kind of affairs. Purim is just begging for us to have fun and introduce that element of surprise into our table setup.
If you're looking for a special something to gift to an important person in your life, here are some personal favorites. I have given/received and tasted all of the above items, and have been impressed with the presentation and quality of the foods.
Here is a cookie cutter idea for those looking for a "non- cookie cutter" idea. For this adorable look, frame your choice of goodies using a standard cookie cutter shape or choose one of the many shapes available to fit your theme. Either way you'll look like "one smart cookie".
