How to Create a DIY Floral Arrangement With Fresh, Edible Vegetables

Veggie Flower Arrangement Is a Cool Centerpiece — and Snack

As a parting present to a friend, Sugar staffer (and OnSugar manager!) sabs creatively crafted a floral arrangement — made entirely out of fresh, edible vegetables! The result was a stunning centerpiece that, like a flower cake, would be a thoughtful (and edible!) gift for someone who avoids sugar.

I loved the idea so much that I had to ask sabs how she did it. Interested in making one yourself? Find out how when you read more.

What you'll need:
1 red bell pepper
1 orange bell pepper
1 yellow bell pepper
3 cremini mushroom caps, stems removed
5-10 red radishes
1 bunch green onions
1 cucumber
14-19 wooden skewers
1 clear flower vase

How to put it all together:

  1. Using a knife, carefully slice the root ends off each radish, and cut four slits around each radish to create flower "petals." (Retain radish tops with leaves, if possible.) Soak radishes for a few hours or overnight until the "petals" begin to open up.
  2. Pierce each radish flower with a skewer, then string a green onion through the skewers for a stem-like effect.
  3. Cut each of the bell peppers in half in a jagged motion to mimic the scalloped edge of a tulip petal. One side of each pepper will have seeds; the other side will not. Trim the ribs out of the side of each pepper without seeds.
  4. Pierce a skewer through each seed-side pepper half and set aside. (Depending on weight and size of peppers, you may need two skewers for each "flower.")
  5. Pierce a skewer through each seedless pepper half, adding a mushroom cap in the center of each of the peppers. Set aside
  6. Slice cucumber lengthwise in thin, long strips to create fill for the vase.
  7. Fill a clear flower vase with the cucumber strips. Arrange radish flower, seed-side, and seedless pepper skewers in the vase.

Marvel at your creation!
