My love of veggies as decorations goes way back apparently. In 2007 I used granny smith apples as tea light holders ans added asparagus in my flower arrangements. These pictures are terrible so please forgive them.
I was so excited to find green tinted roses, they were so unique. I designed this whole table to coordinate my mother-in-law's favorite plates. They were cream and brown, I added green and gold accents.
To carve out the apples, I used a pencil and traced the tealight first, then used a sharp pearing knife to cut out and a spoon to scoop out a space. Super easy!
