{holiday inspiration: artful arrangements}

Recently came across this unusual and unusually beautiful arrangement of baby flowering kale {above} and was reminded of a Swedish florist who created wonderful wreathes of fruits and vegetables . . .

Amazingly creative wreathes made of everyday {edible} objects such as artichokes, Brussels sprouts and fallen apples that, after careful arrangement, become anything but ordinary, and add a charming twist to festive tradition.

I often skip over flower-related posts, as I'm not too into them - but these are fabulous! I love the artichoke one - that is BRILLIANT!

These are gorgeous! Last year my mom got Kale, put them in terracotta pots, and set them up in her vintage plant stand.

that very well may be the best use for brussels sprouts ever.

LOL ana dane -- brussels sprouts are most likely the only food item that I'm not fond of :)

What a gorgeous post. I also love how you are framing your pictures - nice touch!

How creative! I think the fallen apples is my favorite or perhaps the brussels sprouts (since they are usually left uneaten on most people's plates).

Pamela Terry and Edward [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

That has to be the best thing to do with a brussel sprout.

Rekha [Reply] said... Best Blogger Tips [Reply to comment] Best Blogger Templates

very elegant. i wouldn't have thought of half of these. awesome arrangements.

They're beautiful. Eco-friendly too: I don't think they would spoil quickly so you can still eat them after Christmas :)
