There is nothing more sad than a bouquet of faded flowers. He has embellished and embalmed your house for weeks, stood bravely for ages.
Now your bouquet will end his life in the trash or with a little bit of luck… in the compost.
This is THE solution is for a pretty table with a minimal of waste!
In this project, I chose 2 colours: red and green, my 2 colors-theme with a little bit of white.
What you need
- Carots (the purple version)
- Red oignons
- Red lettuce
- Beetroots (uncooked)
- Green and red Pepers
Prep everything — Use wire to stick into the bottom of the fruits or veggies to create a stem. Clean off extra bits from anything that has a ‘stem’. Prepare the succulents by removing them from the soil, cleaning the stem.
Go to your local grocery store or farmer’s market to find fresh fruits, vegetables that will last out of refrigeration for as long as desired.
Trim the stems with gardening shears and wires with wire cutters to the desired length. Because you will have wire showing, you will want to cut the wires shorter than the stems if you would like the stems to show.
To cover the mechanics of your design, use some large leafy pieces to cover the outsides.
Advice: It’s much easier if you gather the larger elements first, then add in smaller pieces that are on wire by simply sticking them down into the top.
Your bouquet is now done! Super pretty, right?

Je vous ai apporté des bonbonsJacques Brel à famous Belgan songwriter
Parce que les fleurs ca est périssable
Puis les bonbons c’est tellement bons
Bien que les fleurs soient plus présentables
Surtout quand elles sont en boutons
