We Love This Party Christmas Tree!

The holidays are such a fun time to create fun and festive recipes and dishes!

With all of these festivities, we always include a vegetable tray (or Charcuterie Board) of some kind, and this Christmas veggie tray is always a welcome hit – especially with the kids!

Why we love it:

  • Quick and easy. This veggie tree has a quick prep time and can easily be made ahead of time.
  • Tasty. It’s a simple appetizer for snacking throughout the night.
  • Party perfect. It’s quite the show-stopper and a festive addition to any holiday or Christmas spread.
  • Eat your greens. Get plenty of fresh vegetables with this adorably delicious Christmas tree vegetable platter!

Ingredients

  • crown broccoli florets or use cauliflower crowns for an all-white Christmas tree.
  • sugar snap peas – used to help give the tree some shape. You can also use some sliced celery.
  • cherry tomatoes to resemble red ornaments. Try using: grape tomatoes, cut radishes, or slice red bell peppers and stamp out red circles.
  • yellow bell pepper – to resemble golden garland. Or use cheddar cheese strips or sliced baby carrots.

How to Assemble

  1. PREP. Begin by rinsing all veggies and chopping up the broccoli and bell peppers.
  2. LAYER. Layer broccoli pieces in a triangle, and add snap peas all around the edges putting them at an angle downward.
  3. GARNISH. Add yellow and red peppers to look like garland, and then add them up top as a star. Sprinkle with cherry tomatoes and serve with your favorite veggie dip.

Recipe Tips

  • Variation. Place some pretzel twists of stick pretzels at the base to resemble a trunk. Change up your Christmas tree veggie trays and include other green vegetables like cucumbers or add olives for additional ornaments.
  • Serve with Dip. Here are some of our favorites:

Storing Info

  • Prep ahead of time. Prep veggies up to 48 hours in advance. Keep the different elements in separate Ziplocs in the fridge.
  • Make ahead of time. Assemble the Christmas veggie tray a few hours before serving. Wrap the tree with plastic wrap and keep it in the fridge.
  • STORE. Either disassemble the tree and store the different elements in their own storage containers, or keep it as is and wrap it in plastic.

    OH my gosh…this is so cute! I have to make this for the holidays! Our little one loves vegetables and dipping too! My favorite tradition is when our elf brings a box of individually wrapped books on December 1st….with instructions our little one gets to open one book each night for bedtime story. This is our 3rd year doing it, and he loves it so much and we get some great new stories to read. When the books are gone…its Christmas!
