Here are cool ways to decorate your table with produce that come straight from your fridge. Remember that you could use vegetables to decorate the next time that you don’t have time to stop by the floral shop before the arrival of your guests.

Blooming Vegetable Bouquets

The first idea by the UK queen of the homemade Sania Pell pairs a single flower or blooming stem (you could use one from your garden) with a carrot or a bunch of radish. This look works when you have vegetables with the leaf still attached to them. I like that it is unexpected and still refined. Get more inspirations from this casual tea gathering from Sania Pell featured at Remodelista.

Edible Centrepiece

Then, I turned to see what the queen of entertaining Martha Stewart had to propose. I like her twist on the crudité platter. Line the bottom of  a deep galvanized-metal planter or a ceramic planter with sprouts, and pour in enough water to moisten them. Keep similar vegetables together and vary the colors to create sections. This creates a stunning edible centrepiece.

Then, I spotted a DIY project from Lexy of The Proper Pinwheel on You are My fave. Lexy decorated seed planter pots with neon twines and turned them into festive party favors. She put jelly beans in hers but you could put tiny cherry tomatoes.
