Tablescapes, Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Tray


I love having fresh flowers in and around my home

At the beach house we have beautiful hibiscus and begonias





But nothing to cut for arrangements…

When HHjr brought home an array of beautiful produce,

I thought, well, I can’t make a flower arrangement but I can make a vegetable one!

A “Vegetablescape!”





I used a large Strawberry Season serving tray as the base

and put a glass cake stand on the tray and added a smaller white bowl





Large romaine lettuce leaves were added next,

Then an artichoke, oranges and a tomato





A red pepper, limes and more oranges at the base of the cake stand





The arrangement was filled out with celery sticks,

snow peas, strawberries, Brussels sprouts

and a zucchini





Looks good enough to eat!





This arrangement obviously can’t be left out for too long,

But for longevity, you could hide ice or cold packs in your arrangement





After enjoying this for a little while,

I put most of the produce in the refrigerator

and gradually turned this kitchen island back to reality





An island buffet works so well for our family





Snacks in jars with small plastic bowls

are handy for hungry fingers to grab





With a box of fresh donuts and a bowl of fruit





The boys were pretty excited when they saw the fresh donuts,

first time in 2 months!





Plates and flatware are at the ready for fixing lunch and serving dinner





My alstromeria are still going strong after 2 weeks









So, eat your veggies,

and play with them too!!!
