To have your centerpiece... and eat it too
We often hear "you first eat with your eyes" or "a feast for the eyes" -I love that.
Of course presentation matters!
This was my design for The Capilano Flower Arranging Club workshop. We were exploring designs using all things edible: fruit, vegetables and a bit of herbs.
For my design I used a fruit that is a vegetable
The plump vine tomatoes were so pretty that all I needed to do was add a sprinkle of chives and a few sheets of lasagna.
Well, maybe we also need a bit of cheese....
I used Kyogi paper to separate the lasagna sheets.
Kyogi paper was historically used in Japan to wrap food. All natural, keeps the food from drying out, adds a subtle flavour and it can be composted to return to the crop-soil-cycle! It is pine (or cedar) wood that is shaved so thin its almost transparent. It can be wrapped, rolled, cut, stained, torn and easily glued.
This was my second two designs for my It's High Time for Tea Floral Craft and Art Demonstration at The Capilano Flower Arranging Club meeting.
