This is a very simple idea for a table centerpiece. What else can I do if I run out of time? We had a celebration during last weekend. My son turned into one. I will post some of his first Birthday Party photos soon.Until that,today I thought of sharing this simple table decoration from the Birthday Party.
Although we ordered food from a catering service, I still cooked some vegetarian foods. We invited few friends for the lunch. Time ran so fast and I found I didn’t have time for any garnish or a simple carving as I planned.
Easy Table Centerpiece with Fruits
So here is what I came up with!
Luckily we didn’t throw the top of pineapple when we prepare the fruit platter. Actually I asked my husband to keep it till we finish all other things. I had a feeling that this pineapple top would be great for a decoration.
Here is what I did.
I used a white plate for the centerpiece arrangement.
Placed the Pineapple top on a side of the plate.
Then I used my V-shape cutter and halved an orange.
After that I kept two halves of cherry tomatoes on oranges. Aren’t these orange halves colourful?
Finally, I used some strawberries and cherry tomatoes together with orange halves to arrange the centerpiece.
To make the arrangement more beautiful, I used a flower pot and filled with grapes. Actually I didn’t have much grapes remaining. We used those in fruit platter. Here is the trick. Inside the flower pot, I kept a small drinking glass upside down. Therefore a little space remained for any other filing.
I filled the remaining space with grapes.
A glass jar filled with pickled vegetables added more beauty for the arrangement.
