Make a Chef's Day with an Edible-Looking Bouquet

Compliments of DK Books - Flower Arranging

Hi Friends,

Any fruit or vegetable with a very short stalk can be wired for use in this hand-tied bouquet, and those with no stalk at all can be supported on a garden stake. Keep this bouquet small; its ingredients are heavier than the usual flowers and foliage. It should last for three to four days in water with regular misting.


Flowers, Fruit and Vegetables
  • 6 wired broccoli florets
  • 9 spring onions tied in bunches of three
  • 5 lilac dahlias
  • 3 trachelium
  • 5 sage stems
  • 5 sedum
  • 5 sprays unripe blackberries
  • 8 rosemary sprigs
  • 3 limes on garden stakes
  • 3 cabbage leaves
Other Materials
  • earthenware pot or similar
  • 90 gauge wire
  • garden stakes
  • garden string
  • florist's scissors
Possible Substitutions
Cauliflower (for broccoli); elderberries (for blackberries); asparagus (for spring onions); any fresh herbs.

An improvised bouquet of ingredients from the garden or farmer's market makes an evocative centerpiece for a dining table or kitchen table. Please feel free to share some of your flowers, fruit and vegetables options with us too; look forward to hearing from you...
