Instead of the usual flowers, try using an assortment of fruits and vegetables as table arrangements. These natural beauties have all the elements of good deign – form, color, line and texture.


Assorted vegetables or fruits

Simple bowls

Sharp knife

Fresh flowers


When placed in a bowl or in a lien down a table or counter, fresh fruits and vegetables offer a simple yet very pleasing appearance.

For a slightly more elaborate but still easy-to-create centerpiece, hollow our vegetables or fruits with a sharp knife, and insert flowers; citrus fruits can be used as natural “water picks.” Or simply cut some of the fruits or vegetables to display the beautiful interior symmetry.
