Selected fruits and vegetables, sometimes in conjunction with flowers look wonderful as well as being a unique choice.
This is my favourite; the draped branches and fresh peaches create a beautifully colourful and rustic feel.
Fresh fruit makes a delicious and thoughtful gift for guests, particularly refreshing berries or a pear on a warm Summers day.
Citrus fruits work well in Winter and are also a favourite in my own home as they look fantastic and don't break the budget.
Pay attention to what's in season and you can't go wrong; peaches, pears, cherries, berries look great and if guests get peckish they will be a tasty treat. Artichokes and mini-pumpkins look fantastic and like apples are quite hardy and will last the day.
