For a small gathering, this would work because you could warn people to stick to the cherries. At a large gathering, you'd have to do a Paul Revere.
Lots of possibilities here for other holidays and tablescapes! :-)

I'm joining Susan at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ for Tablescape Thursday this eve of Christmas Eve. See y'all there.
P.S. Foodie Friday will be up tomorrow at 8 pm central.
