This sign is well known for having a sweet tooth. Mix up candy treats with delicious healthy sweet tropical fruits. Fruit kebabs are great for party food.

Their colour is soft green, perfect to add a soothing touch to any room.
Aries. 21st March – 20th April.
This star sign tends to love a big breakfast and enjoys starters and appetizers. Create tiny bites for them to get stuck into at home and parties.
