A few tips to prepare your bar

  1. Prepare the pesto and marinara sauce the day before, or buy your favourite brand from the grocery store
  2. Put together all the toppings when you have time during the day, except for the ones that go black (the pear for instance)
  3. Set up the bar around 30 minutes before the guests arrive
  4. Pre-cut a few slices of the cheeses to make them look more inviting
  5. Cut your bread, brush it with olive oil and pop it in the oven just before your guests arrive so they taste super fresh
  6. Fill the gaps on the bar with some of the grilled bread and place the rest in a side dish

You could prepare a few bruschettas for your guests or leave all the fun to them! There are endless combinations to make!
