TIP OF THE DAY: Make An Edible Christmas Centerpiece

There’s no need to go to the florist for a holiday centerpiece.

You can make the one in the photo, just by adding tree ornaments to a glass bowl.

For a food theme, substitute some of the ornaments with pomegranates and lemons. Push some cloves into the lemons for more visual interest and aroma.

You can also visit the produce department of a fine supermarket (or a produce store) to see what looks good. Look for:

  • Baby pineapples
  • Currants (Champagne grapes)
  • Cranberries, scattered or threaded into a garland
  • Lady apples
  • Clementines
  • Exotic fruits: Asian pears, baby bananas, Buddha’s hand citrus, cape gooseberries, cherimoyas, dragon fruit
  • Green and red bell peppers and chiles
  • Oranges studded with cloves (which will dry into pomander balls for decor or sachets)

    Add some fruit and deck the table with

    For accents, consider:

  • Cinnamon Sticks
  • Decorative red berries
  • Evergreen branches
  • Holly
  • Pine cones
  • Twigs
    Arrange in a glass bowl or a basket, and you’ve got your centerpiece. Tie a ribbon around the bowl or basket for more festiveness.
