What could be more unusual, that a flower arrangement you can eat?
Of course flower arrangements can be made from vegetables of fruits; herbs have long been part of conventional flower arranging, but in the last few years the art of edible flower arrangements made of fruit has come to the fore with some interesting results. Flowers made from chopped melon, chocolate dipped pineapple and other exotics make a wonderful gift which just has to be consumed while fresh, but there’s more. Edible flower arrangements can me made entirely from chocolate, in fact chocolate covered strawberries and chocolate roses are becoming just as popular on Valentines and mothers day as conventional flowers, so why not create something really different for your next dinner party and end the meal by eating the centerpiece.
