Mom’s Fruit & Nut Centerpieces
Fruits and nuts are a very luscious way of decorating your dessert table. Indeed, incorporating the hues of fall using fruits that are available this season makes for a very autumn-inspired wedding!
I dug up some of my mom’s pictures from her table arrangements and also asked her the quickest and most economical way of creating a simple fruit and nut centerpiece that would go with your dessert or buffet spreads.
You need: A three-tiered wire basket; fruits (apples, pears, grapes, pomegranates, oranges); nuts; dried moss; dried leaves (maple, oak, beech, ash, eucalyptus as shown) and dried blooms.
How-to: Create a bed of moss, and alternately layer the fruits and nuts, then decorate with your dried leaves and blooms.
You need: Pears or kumquats; ivy leaves; moss; large dessert glasses; toothpicks; and floral foam.
How-to: Cut your foam into the shape of your dessert glass, leaving a rounded top. Wrap the foam with moss. Stick the fruits into the foam using toothpick at the bottom of each fruit, arranging them starting from the bottom working your way to the top and avoiding gaps as much as possible. Add the ivy leaves.
So there you go folks, bountiful centerpieces that will have dual purpose on your wedding day!
