As you can see, kids can make fun arrangements or centerpieces using citrus fruits and dried fruit! And then Mom can complete the look with a large arrangement of her own, and wow, what a great combination! It's so easy, and doesn't really require an explanation right? I'll just add that the orange and pomella are held together by a wooden skewer and the rest of the fruits are attached with toothpicks.
And who is stealing the glory in this arrangement? That amazing pineapple top that I have to credit to one of my older sons. At his school party they ate pineapples, and he immediately thought that I could do something with it. (Nothing like training the kids to bring home good garbage!) Honestly when he brought it home yesterday I wasn't quite sure what I could do with it, but today, the solution seemed so obvious. So if you're serving pineapple, don't forget to save the top!
Pineapples are a treat for us here, but maybe I'll just have to buy some more for my next centerpiece! So file this idea somewhere, in the "don't forget this simple idea file" and you'll be so happy you did! Enjoy.
