She pulled a few fronds from her palm tree and went about making cocktail picks from them. The trick is to let the leaves sit for about a week before you use them to let them dry out and stiffen.
As you can see from this picture, pull thin strands from the leaves. Depending on the length you want the picks to be, make the strands longer or shorter as needed. Tie the end of the strand to make a knot at the top. Skewer your fruit and arrange on a plate. It’s as simple as that!!
I was grateful to receive a batch of these great cocktail picks from my sister, they will definitely be a hit at my next cocktail party!!
