Cool Idea: Using Cabbage as a Centerpiece

Glass vases are chic and timeless, but sometimes you need to stir things up a bit. And when you've used every old coffee pot and vessel you can think of, look to your kitchen or garden. Real Simple looked at a head of cabbage with an inventive eye, and decided to use it as a centerpiece. After cutting an opening into the top of each cabbage, they fit a piece of saturated floral foam inside, turning the produce into a vase! I love how they chose purple flowers to match the hue of the cabbage; it really makes a statement. For full instructions, go here.

This reminds me (because I am an old geezer) of when I was working at a gift shop in the late 70s. One of the fine china companies put out a line of dishware called Yellow Cabbage. Every single item that you could make out of ceramic for the dining room and probably a couple of pieces that you wouldn't normally make that way, designed to look like you were using leaves of yellow cabbage.

This is really pretty, but part of me thinks it's such a waste of perfectly good food :-(
