My opinon of garnishes vascilates: although I firmly believe that the enjoyment of food is not limited to flavor, sometimes the time and effort put into appearance doesn’t seem worthwhile.

Would piles of vegetable dips be as appetizing, slopped on plates? Would the guests be as mesmerized if they replaced the fruit lanterns with neon lights?
