Hello Dear Readers! It’s another great day as today is the 3rd Friday of the month
and that means it is Floral Friday!
Today I am joining my wonderful Floral Friday friends, Lidy, Mary and Pam
to present our floral creations incorporating fruit or veggies or both!
Their links and images are below so that you can visit them
and receive more amazing floral inspiration!
My inspiration for my flower arrangement today was Peonies.
I was thrilled to obtain some this late in the season and could not wait
to create an arrangement with them being the star.
Welcome to our Flowers, Fruit and Veggies – Floral Friday!
I was on the “call list” at Whole Foods should they have a delivery of Peonies.
They promised to call me if they came in and they certainly came through!
The very next day as I was at Trader Joe’s and they had a shipment of Peonies come in.
So I bought another bunch that were a darker pink to coordinate with the
lighter pink Peonies from Whole Foods.
I saw these pretty pink roses at Trader Joe’s
and knew they would coordinate very nicely with the Peonies.
I chose the strawberries for their color and texture
and bunches of radishes for their “out of the box” element.
I knew that the radishes would look wonderful at the base of the silver champagne bucket
cascading over the edges with those lovely roots.
I grouped strawberries at the base of the arrangement between the radishes
to ground the arrangement as you would a room.
Did I tell you how much I love the way this bunch of radishes
adds such fabulous shapes and color to the arrangement?!!
I never thought that a bunch of radishes could look so pretty!
And the same thing goes for the strawberries.
The darker pink Peonies were further along in their blooming process
than the lighter pink ones, which gave the arrangement several stages of their blooms.
Here is the full image of the Flowers, Fruit and Veggies arrangement.
I am so pleased of they way the arrangement turned out.
I was actually working on this arrangement while the Home Inspector was
conducting our home inspection for the due diligence of the sale.
He gave me the thumbs up on the arrangement as he was leaving!
So what is a flower, fruit and veggie centerpiece on a table
without some fruit to accompany the centerpiece?!
I found this beautiful fruit tart at my local grocery store.
It was serendipitous as it resembled a flower!
My hubby was anxiously waiting for me to finish the photo shoot
so he can have a slice of the fruit tart.
He knows the rules about partaking of something that is really pretty in the fridge.
He asks first if it is a prop!
So after this photo was taken, and a slice placed on a plate for his culinary
delight for the day, he was a happy camper. . . . and so was I
as this centerpiece of flowers, fruit and veggies truly made me smile.
Hope it made you smile too!!
And speaking of smiles. . . . for more smiles, hop on over
and visit my lovely, sweet and talented friends! The links are below the images.
Now, aren’t those floral arrangements/centerpieces amazingly beautiful?
And speaking of beautiful . . . I wish you all a most beautiful day and weekend!!!
