Incorporating fruit into a centerpiece or arrangement, is a very hot trend right now. I've noticed it at several parties and love using fruit because it's cheaper than having a professional florist, and less expensive than purchasing several bouquets and arranging them yourself. You can have gorgeous, professional looking decorations ready in under five minutes:
- Fill vases, preferably in various sizes and shapes, with the fruit of your choice (tomatoes are pictured here).
- Add water so the fruit bobs and bounces buoyantly.
- Wrap a thick satin ribbon around the vase and secure in place with a tiny squeeze of hot glue.
