I posted about fruit with fall flowers last Friday, and this Friday, again have that combination on the brain!
For the holidays, I’m loving flowers with real sugared fruit right now. I first came across this look on the website of fantastic Dallas based florist Cebolla Fine Flowers. Here are some of their creations:
I actaully was inspired to try a sugared fruit arrangement myself for my birthday party last year – the fruit is very easy to sugar – you basically brush egg whites on it and roll the wet fruit in the sugar of your choice – anything from glittery decorators sugar to extra fine sugar can work depending on the look you’re going for (more detailed tutorial here). A little word of caution for DIY’ers though- fruit emits gasses which kill flowers sooner than they’d otherwise die, so assemble these as close to last minute as possible.
Even though I think of the sugared fruit as a fall/winter thing because it conjures up cornucopias and fruit frosted by snow, I also came across this photo, of a very summery sugared fruit centerpiece, that I also love!
