This time of year lends itself to easy, beautiful crafts and food. With the holidays coming up and my wedding anniversary next week, I thought I'd repost this idea for my newest readers.
The picture above was from my wedding six years ago. Each guest table was adorned with a lovely centerpiece of fresh strawberries. Edible? You bet! Guests were encouraged to pull off the fruit and were given chocolate sauce and whipped cream to use as dip.
It made a great appetizer as well as an additional dessert. Perfect with champagne too!
And a great alternative to expensive floral centerpieces.
These are always eye catching and a hit. AND.. .easy! Just get floral foam, strawberries and stick them in with toothpicks. Sidenote: cover the floral foam with lettuce or kale so the fruit doesn't touch the foam.
Don't want to provide a dip? Dip your strawberries in dark or white chocolate before sticking into the foam. A grab and go dessert!
Stay tuned and I'll show you one I'm putting together for a holiday get together!
