Freshen Up Your decor
Posted on 29 July 2017
Fruit has been a part of home and wedding décor—off and on—since ancient Egyptian times. We know Cezanne and Caravaggio had their fruity fun, but we’ll bet Cleopatra also flaunted fancy fruit arrangements in her palace.
At this point, you’re probably wondering why we’re giving you a history of fruit. Well, friends, let us enlighten you: fruit centerpieces are in again, and this time they’re here to stay.
For the interior decorator
Fruit centerpieces are hot, hot, hot in home décor—making the perfect transition piece from summer to fall. They’re affordable, aromatic, and appealing to the eye. Adding a fruity focal point to your kitchen table will keep your traditional vibe alive, while still adding a touch of freshness and funk.

For the party planner
Whether it be a summer BBQ, a neighborhood block party, a baby shower, or a fall family get together, you can’t go wrong with a bright fruit centerpiece. Use fruit in your centerpieces, your place settings, or for embellishments on the main dish.
If you’re okay with the idea of short-lived centerpieces, let your décor double as a serving platter. Your guests will thank you!

For the trendy bride
Just because fruit has a history, doesn’t mean it will bore your décor. Just like choker necklaces and culottes have made a comeback, fruit centerpieces will keep you right on trend.
Try placing your fruit in non-traditional vases and going with a sophisticated color scheme to add some interest to your overall look.

For the traditional bride
We’re right there with you traditional ladies! As florists, our hearts pull toward big, beautiful, blooming bouquets and traditional embellishements. We do, however, love the idea of adding subtle, fruity touches to a summer or fall bouquet to liven things up a little. Try pink and neutral fruits to compliment your flowers and give your centerpieces depth and texture.
