Pinterest Fail: Veggie Turkey Tray

Just thought I'd share with you all a little Pinterest fail that I attempted on Thanksgiving. It was sort of spur of the moment as I was arranging the veggies that I spent all night cutting. I thought, "Oh I'll try and make it look like a turkey like I've seen on Pinterest! That will be cute!"


I had seen this one first and thought it would be cute to try! 


Or this one...


This one is great too!


Even this little one is cute!


This is what mine looked like. Yikes. 

Pinterest. Fail.

Such a simple task yet...not quite so easy. 

Do you like to make your veggie trays fancy or just functional? Have you ever dressed up a veggie tray to look like something else?

Till next time,
Catherine

  1. Lol, I had to laugh out loud at this one. That's exactly how it would look if I tried to make this!

    1. But I do have a question. What fruit/veggie do you think is the yellow head in the very top photo?

    2. Glad I'm not the only one ;) It looks like a small yellow squash to me!

  2. Geeze! I thought the very top 1 was so cute, I was planning to make it. Never dreamed mine wouldn't look just like it; then I saw the bottom one. Better rethink.

    1. Just give yourself more than 5 minutes to do it. I think that was part of my problem! Haha.

  3. My mom actually made the first one. The trick is to make it big. She tried making a smaller one last year and it didn't turn out as nice.

  4. Is the center solid peppers all the way through? And, about how much of each veggie do I need?

    1. No it's just one top layer of peppers. I used one of each color pepper, one cucumber, small bag of baby carrots, etc. Just prepare a lot of veggies then take what you need to build your turkey :)
