Fruit may not be an obvious choice for wedding decor. Yet, wedding florists and planners are finding more creative ways to meet their couple’s wish to have a wedding that incorporates seasonal, locally grown florals and greenery. The spring and summer harvests produce some of nature’s most vibrant colors and forms. Picking up on this, experts are using lemons, oranges, berries, and pineapples to brighten up everything from tablescapes and stationery to dessert. Another reason to do fruit? It is fairly inexpensive allowing you to go big with decor while staying on budget.

 

Table Decor

Adding a dash of surprise on the tabletop, fruit pairs wonderfully with a variety of floral designs. A gorgeous Grecian inspired centerpiece showcases lemon accents with organic greenery and white blooms. Grapes, figs, and peaches against lush flowers creates a rich tablescape decadent enough to impress Dionysus and friends. Escape to the Tuscan countryside with a lemon adorned table garland. A gilded pineapple alongside tropical florals and gold accents evokes a mood of playful elegance.
