Would you like Food in your Arrangement?

 

 

Recently my designer friend brought me a customer’s pot and this magazine ~~~~

 

 

fruits and veggies

 

Have you ever heard of it?  Me neither.

 

The pot was a standard shaped black and white check she ordered from this company.  She wanted this look……

in an everyday version with fruits and veggies.  Her table was good sized but she wanted the arrangement to be more upright.

 

 

Here’s the finished product I arranged for her ~~~~~

Close up of details….

I love the realistic green onions and bundle of green beans.  There is a beet and pomegranates and lettuce.  I didn’t get a picture of the back, but I placed an artichoke, another pomegranate and a radish. Can’t remember what else.  Lots of greens, some raspberries and twigs and other green berries.

 

 

It will be delivered today, but not by me.  I hope to hear she likes it.

Donna, That arrangement came out so NICE. Love all the veggies for the addition of color! I want a pot like that!!
oh... I have only found a couple of things on craig's list. But a lot of people list their yard sales on it, so that is what I was doing Sat. morning- finding listings. Go check it out- you just might get lucky.
hugs, sue

Love the arrangement Donna. It has inspired me to try to make one (using fresh) for an "end of summer" tablescape.
