Leaf Picks! And Breakfast Bento

The other day my friend Julie came over to drop off the rest of my present. Really cute Leaf Picks!!!! I love them so much, and I couldn't wait to try them out. Unfortunately I wasn't able to try them out until today because yesterday was a very busy day.
The person she ordered them from online was late sending them out, so as an apology she sent two packages instead of one. So Now I have two packages of adorable leaf picks! Aren't they so cool?
All together I have:
  • 6 Dark Green Leaf Double Picks
  • 4 Light Green Leaf Double Picks
  • 4 Dark Green Leaf Single Picks
  • 6 Light Green Leaf Single Picks
I can't wait to have a big picnic where I can use all these picks. That would look really cute, and it makes eating fruit a lot easier then having a set of chopsticks for everyone at the picnic.

Here are some ideas for what you could skewer using the leaf picks:
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Olives
  • Melon (cubes, balls, or cut into shapes like flowers)
  • Cheese
  • Grapes
  • Cherries
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries (if they are large ones)
  • Citrus Fruit (Small Clementine, Mandarin Orange, etc.)
  • Vegetables (cut into shapes like flowers)
  • Quail Eggs
  • Meatballs
  • Tamagoyaki (Rolled Omelet)
  • Mini Hotdogs (cut into tulips or other flowers shapes)
Here is my breakfast today. I had my usual yogurt, fruit and cereal, but I dressed it up with one of my new leaf picks!
  • Sliced Strawberries
  • Small Strawberries (on Double Leaf Pick)
  • Newman's Own Sweet Enough Honey Flax Flakes Cereal
  • Yoplait Very Vanilla Yogurt Light
  • Milled Flax Seeds (I tried to shape it into a flower, but it failed. I guess it's not a good shape to try with flax seed. The hearts and stars I've done before are much easier and nicer looking)


  1. CUTE! Do you know where your friend ordered these from? You're right, they'd be perfect for summer!

  2. Hi Mel, I am not sure were she ordered them from, I think it was either or Ebay.
