“I the Lord search the heart and test the mind, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds.”
Happy Thursday! Is it raining in your neck of the woods? It seems that we are in the monsoon season. Rain, rain, and more rain! We are currently under a flood watch through Friday. I can’t remember a January and February that had this much rain. On the bright side, it gives plenty of opportunity to stay indoors and catch up on a favorite hobby…reading! For the past couple of years I have been reading book after book of historical fiction…I finish one, and begin another. I decided this year to keep a list of all the books that I read. If only I had done that since my passion for reading began in the fifth grade. I could talk about books forever, but that isn’t what today’s post is about. With my Monday Morning Blooms sitting on the dining room table, I decided to set a tablescape. As I was putting the post together, it occurred to me that I had used fruit and flowers on several previous tablescapes. It is so easy to incorporate the two, they just seem to go together like peanut butter and jelly!
A blooming pineapple is an easy way to incorporate the use of fruit as a vase for flowers. Melons also make great vases for flowers!
Fruit n’ flowers were used as a centerpiece runner! This is the simplest way to create a centerpiece using both flowers and fruit. Using small glass jars and filling them with garden flowers, I then added fern fronds and sprigs of baby’s breath to fill in. Lemons, limes, grapefruit, and oranges were placed in the runner, halving some to add a pop of color and interest.
The possibilities are endless for fruit and flower centerpieces! Be fearless,and give it a try! Thank you for each visit and the comments that you leave. I hope you will come back tomorrow as Butch and I share a personal story! Wishing you all a joy-filled day!
