In the mid summer heat, flowers can wilt and die quickly. Try this vibrant citrus centrepiece; it will last for days, even if the temperatures soar…
You will need….
- A selection of citrus fruit. I used Lemons, limes, small oranges, kumquats and physalis.
- An oasis wreath
- Greenery, I used Bay leaves
- A kitchen knife and secateurs
- Ribbon- optional
Cut your greenery into aprox 4-inch sprigs
Working around your wreath; place the sprigs into the oasis to make an even base.
Using your toothpicks place the fruit decoratively into the base
Cut 2 of the lemons into slices and wedges, and place in your wreath.
Optional – I added ribbon for a more festive look – perfect for a party!
Pour yourself a chilled glass of Vino Verde and admire your heat resilient masterpiece!
