Making a Pavlova look special

A friend has asked me to make one for her dinner party. My meringues always taste fine but don't look elegant. Any tips?
I wondered about piping the sides?
Should I put a lid in?
I thought a topping of strawberry & passion fruit but am open to suggestion.

Also, I just use egg whites and caster sugar.
Lots of recipes use corn flour, vanilla extract and vinegar. Is this necessary?

Thanks all. No gold leaf but I have edible silver glitter.
Thought I'd just put it on the meringue, not the cream & fruit?
