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.

Here’s a youtube video which shows how edible arrangements can be made from fruit. I received one for my birthday last year, and it was gorgeous. My favorite was the chocolate coated pineapple!

Some of my favorite books, and my favorite flowers. Orchids look unusual and exotic in every situation, they last well, and these golden mokara orchids are so eye catching and unusual I couldn't resists them. There's no reason you shouldn't add them to a vase with no further preparation, but with the art of Ikebana, you might find one bunch of orchids stretches a very long way. These unusual arrangements are elegant and thought provoking - just why do they appeal the way they do. Ikebana is a fascinating subject, so Ive included a book I enjoyed on the subject as well as something which always used to be difficult to find, a pebble shaped ikebana vase. Now, thanks to amazon, this beautiful and unusual container is only a click away.
