Boast your Ottawa Senators pride with this 8"" x 32"" Heritage Banner. This awesome banner is perfect for Ottawa Senators fans.
Wayne was born Jan 1961 in Brantford near Toronto, Ontario, Canada. When Wayne was two, he had his first pair of skates. Wayne started playing and most everything was carefully recorded by his father. By heeding his dad's coaching to go where the puck would be, not to where it was, Wayne outshone his rivals. Is he the Great One? When 100 point seasons were rare, Wayne Gretzky was netting 200 plus. He did it four times, Wayne alone has done this and 215 was his all time peak in 1985-86. In 1981 Gretzky broke the 50 goals in 50 games mark long held by the famous Maurice the rocket Richard. Wayne was just twenty years old at the time. It took him only 39 games to do it. He went on to beat 50 goals 9 times in the 80's! Wayne's 92 goals in 1980 destroyed the previous record of 76 held by Phil Esposito. Each year through the 1980's you new Wayne would win both the Hart and the Ross trophies.
Sometimes more expensive, they can all be used in small amounts as a little goes a long way. These should be added LAST to the platter! So they don't get covered with any other fruits! You only need to pick 1 or 2 of these. You don't want to have too much going on. KIWI - Some people leave the skin on these and just slice. I prefer peeling them and slicing them so that the guest does not have to complete the preparation at the table. These are pretty and are best displayed if the last thing put onto the platter. Chop - cut in rounds thick enough to not be floppy. Skin on or off - your choice. STAR FRUIT - Similar to Kiwi, these should be cut thin, but do not peel. It is nearly impossible to peel these things. The skin keeps their shape. They are beautiful, yet less colorful, so choose only if you have plenty of other color. BLUEBERRIES - These can just be scattered across the tops of the filler sections.
Again, a few go a long way with presentation. MINI BANANAS - If adding these to a platter - I suggest leaving them in a bunch, and placing them in one section in the front for display. I would not separate, as they do not have the visual appeal separately. STRAWBERRIES - Usually served cleaned but whole, can also be sliced in half and displayed with flat side down to make them go farther. What Size Platter does this fit? How big is this fruit platter? Ideally, you want a platter that is approx.14 inches round. This is the size that I use, and it ALWAYS fills perfectly with the size of the pineapple center and slices. I have done it on 12 inch and 16 inch, and it does work, but it does not end up quite as perfect. They are a great size to have available in your kitchen anyway - so treat yourself to one.
You will be happy you did! Everyone should have a decent platter in the cabinet, for this display, and for any potluck or party. Click on my links and I will LOVE You ! Thse are the manual assembly directions, to be completed after fruit is prepared. Place the Pineapple stem in the center of the Tray. Place the 5 pineapple sections (with cherries attached and sitting on the rinds) on the tray. The bottom edges (what used to be the bottom of the pineapple) in towards the stem. Arrange your assorted fruits (the bulk fruits for the filler sections) - should be 2 or 3 varieties - in the sections in between the pineapple/cherry/rind sections. TIP -Use one section for the mini-bananas with only a few of the other fruits if using mini-bananas-see pic at top of this page. Add accents to top the filler sections - sparingly for nice effect. Cover with plastic wrap or foil and chill until serving time. If you don't like maraschino cherries - you can substitute for purple/red grapes. The green ones could also be used, but they against the yellow pineapple, they're not as vibrant.
