Tablescapes, Have your Centerpiece & eat it too!




With nothing particular in mind, I hit the produce dept of my regular grocery store and loaded my cart with favorites and freshest…



Fat rosy radishes, a giant cabbage, a big artichoke, parsley, asparagus, bright orange carrots, along with simple white tulips, orange tipped spray roses, and a pot of mint



A ruffled garden cloth, cabbage leaf mats and a carrot basket



A simple asparagus fashioned vase



Let the fun begin!











Now eat your veggies!

  1. Well how creative is all this- a true feast for the eyes! I like how the parsley looks mixed with the other veges! I was thinking how my daughter’s bunny would have a field day on that table! Love the asparagus wrapped vase with the orange roses and the adorable cabbage leaf pitcher.

  2. How lush! I don’t think I’ve ever seen radishes so big, Jenna. You have some great ideas there/

    • I know I was amazed at the difference a few weeks make in the produce dept., 3 weeks ago I couldn’t find an artichoke anywhere, and now they are huge, and I agree, I’ve never seen such big radishes!

  3. Oh Jenna, how I love your edible centerpiece. I have been thinking about making asparagus vases for fresh flowers. I agree with Rita, the radishes are huge! You are so inspiring with all of your talent! Happy Thursday!

    My favorite kind of centerpiece Jenna, one you can eat! Love the bounty of veggies and textures, your asparagus vases are perfect for spring!

  5. Awesome Jenna! Love how fresh this tablescape is and so clever too!

  6. It’s so magical! I love the use of the lettuce and the sweet bunny. So pretty!

  7. So cute! If you set your asparagus vase in a saucer of water, the asparagus will stay fresh too. I usually cut off the bottom half inch and store them in mason jars with water in the frig. Very interesting centerpiece!

    This is wonderful, Jenna. I spy a couple of things I’ll be using in a tablescape very soon. I hope I can do it as much justice as you did! 🙂
