Fruits and Vegetables
Did You Know?

When choosing fruits and vegetables for your displays, lean toward produce that isn't quite ripe. These firmer choices will be easier to work with and last longer, too.

Whole fruits or vegetables displayed in bowls, baskets or pitchers can be an impressive sight. An abundance of these colorful items looks bountiful and coordinates with almost any décor. If you'd like to mix it up a bit, incorporate flowers, like bird of paradise or orchids, into the mix. Your table will look lush, exotic and inviting, regardless of the season. If you're decorating a number of tables, try to come up with a standardized arrangement that you can repeat for all the centerpieces in the room. This will create a consistent and professional look. A mirrored tray under the arrangement will add some sparkle and elegance.
