I'm looking at having a rather large gathering this holiday season, and although I have a ridiculous amount of white plates, I'm rather lacking in the cup department. Dinner I can cover, but post-party refreshments glassware I'm a little shy on. Although they offer eco-friendly disposable options, I'd prefer not to, and I think this nutritious option might just be what I'm looking for.
Ali decided to use a paring knife and a spoon (or a melon baller if you have it) to hollow out some apples to act as cider cups. They make an extra pretty presentation that has purpose to boot! It would be a great way to serve up a warm beverage after dinner and have a little snack when you're done.
If you were so bold, you could probably utilize pears, large plums or even a tomato if you're serving up a Bloody Mary. Check out more on this idea over at Gimmie Some Oven.
