Creative Non-Floral Centerpieces

Designing your next centerpiece? Instead of planning a trip to the florist make a quick stop to the grocery store or the farmers market in the fruits and vegetables section. Oh yes it can be done!

Minoo Hersini, Creative Director at Au Ciel Design Studio shows you how to think outside-the-box with these unique non-floral centerpieces.

The first centerpiece is made with grass, setaria and panicum.

The second one is constructed with peppers, beans, green tomatoes and steel grass.

The third centerpiece is an oasis ring with purple cabbages, tomatoes, pomegranates, cynara/artichokes, winter red sedums, asparagus and quinces.

The last one is made with ornamental kale, green chrisanthemum, brazilian berries and the container is wrapped in moss.

Switch it up, be creative and have fun!
