Whether you are hosting a brunch or planning a large dinner gathering, setting up trays and platters will allow your guests to feel comfortable and surrounded by delicious foods to eat. Organizing and displaying oranges and other fruits on a platter adds color and life to any food menu. Displaying oranges on a fruit platter will allow you to get creative while serving healthy appetizers and snacks to your guests.

Stack the oranges after washing them, unpeeled on top of one of another to form a pyramid if you plan to serve whole fruits on your platter.

Peel and cut the oranges traditionally, slicing each orange into eight even pieces. Line the oranges in a row on the fruit platter or create a spiral decoration with your platter -- using alternating fruits and creating "rings" of fruit to complete the tray's look.

Arrange sliced pieces of your oranges -- peeled or not -- on your fruit platter along with additional fruits such a bananas, apples, grapes or sliced kiwi, along with other preferred fruits. Alternate each fruit when arranging each one on the tray to add color and contrast to the look of the platter -- such as placing oranges next to green kiwis or fresh blueberries.
