We celebrated my sister’s birthday tonight; and about an hour before dinner, I was feeling inspired. Over the summer, I saw a magazine article that featured a watermelon centerpiece. The melon was cut in half and again on the bottom, so it stood straight up. Gerber daisies were stuck into the pink flesh. The fluid and sugar in the watermelon feed the daisies to keep the arrangement fresh.
Ubermommy’s gift was Linda Watson’s book, Wildly Affordable Organic. But when there’s a chance to bring flowers, I do. So what better vase to accompany that particular book than an organic apple? I thought it might require some fiddling or possibly carving but not so if you have a skewer on hand. Poke some holes, and the stems will slide right in. Then pop it in the fridge until you need it. Easy, quick, fun, quirky – to all my friends, there are apple bouquets in your future.
