If you love putting together platters, this will give you a good idea for a Christmas sweet platter to play around with.

I absolutely LOVE platters !  Sweet, savory and all the rest of it.

What is so great about making your own platter, is that you choose what goes on it ! Besides that, you can really work with any budget.

To save some money, or you prefer homemade sweet treats, bake, make your own items for your platter. Grab some ideas from this post or the variations given below the items for mine in the photos.
