Easy Cheese Platter

Line a round platter or board with the leaves and place the grapes in the middle to create a visual focal point.  Fill a small decorative bowl with fig preserves and place it to one side on the board.  Arrange the cheeses over the leaves, without crowding, and artfully arrange the figs, apricots and crackers around the cheeses.
