Homemade lemon table decorations

Freshen your Lunch or dinner table this May with these unique Lemon table decorations. They can be used as place settings, or grouped as a centrepiece.

You will need

  • A bag of lemons
  • Flowers, I used Orange Roses, Alstroemaria, and a selection from the garden.
  • Secateurs and a sharp kitchen knife
  • Craft tags

Step1 – cut off the bottom of your lemon, so it sits flat. Then cut the top of, about ¼ so you have a nice little flower holder

Step 2 – cut your rose leaving about 3-4 inches of stem, and place in the middle of the lemon. Hold the stalk firmly when pushing into the lemon so as not to break it.

Step 3 – work around the centre rose with your assorted flowers and foliage – to make a miniature posy.

Step 4 – write your guests names on the craft tags, and tie to the stem of the rose.

Step 5 – place on your table, make sure you use a plate or saucer so as not to stain you cloth or table with lemon juice.
