    I have a client that was at an event in orland where they served apps on oriental spoons from what is best described as a spoon tree. She stated that the device is round, it spins and hold the spoons by the handle. guests then take the spoon they like. She would love the have a simular presentation at her reception.

    I have been all over the web and can not seem to be able to find one of these spoon trees.

    Does any one know where we might be able to find a spoon tree?

    Thank you

    maybe something can be gerry rigged, I've used communion cups and trays to pass apple pie shots.

    bet there could be stacked moving trays.

    I'd start by looking at a tiered display stand, say like for pastries or cupcakes. If you set the stand on a "lazy susan", it would rotate with little effort.

    Oriental (Chinese) spoons, especially when holding food, will stand freely, so the handles are easily grasped.
