Under the Sea Fun Octopus Vegetable Platter

Do you have a get together coming up?  If so be sure to impress with an Under the Sea Octopus Vegetable Platter.  This could be great for themed birthday parties and definitely perfect for a Finding Dory party.  The platter is simple to make and honestly won’t take any extra ingredients (other than the candy eyes) above and beyond a normal vegetable platter.  


  •  Cucumbers
  • Red pepper
  • Yellow pepper
  • Orange pepper
  • Celery
  • Ranch vegetable dip
  • Candy eyes (I used Wilton Brand that I found at JoAnn Fabrics)
  • Any other vegetables you would like to include


  • Cut up the vegetables – you could use whatever your family favorites are.  I cut up some colored peppers, cucumbers, and celery and used baby carrots
  • Cut the top off one pepper for the body of the octopus
  • Using another pepper of the same color cut out eight legs
  • Attach candy eyeballs (or you could use black olives) with a dab of ranch dressing on the back
  • Place the vegetables in a serving tray (a tray with sections is helpful).
  • Fill the center of the tray with ranch dip
  • Put the octopus body on top of the dressing and arrange the eight legs out on top of the other veggies
