Food Centerpieces

When you find yourself with an abundance from your garden or food that is on the brink of going bad, don’t despair and DON’T get out the crockpot. Instead, use this bounty to create beautiful centerpieces for your table, buffet and mantel.

Stuffed Cabbage

Cut a hole in the top of each cabbage large enough to fit a piece of floral foam. Place foam inside hole and add water until the foam is saturated. Cut flower stems and/or branches at a sharp angle and push into the foam.

Oranges For Flowers

Trim the rind at the bottom of each orange to create a flat spot so it won’t roll.

Cut a drinking straw into two equal pieces. Use a pencil or pen to poke a hold in the top of each orange long enough to insert about 4 inches of the straw. Insert a straw in each hole. Place the stem of one flower in each straw.

Fishbowl Vase

Fill a fishbowl halfway with one or more types of small fruit such as kumquats or key limes or wedges of citrus such as lemons or limes. Add enough water to almost cover the fruit. Gently push flower stems and/or branches into the fruit.

About Kat

I started this blog to share with you all the results of years of turning trash into treasures. Hopefully I'll spark some new creative thoughts and if that happens I hope that you'll share your discoveries and together we’ll build a blog that will singlehandedly reduce global warming and save the world! Okay, maybe that’s a grand goal but we should be able to at least downsize our own trash output.
