Fresh fruit has become a trend in itself. Lemons, limes, oranges, kumquats, and several other exotic forms of these fruits have become widely used to fill containers and as part of the arrangemnet itself. I think that it is the look of freshness it creates that makes it so popular. This photograph demonstrates how accents can change the entire look of your reception tables. These (candlestick) napkin folds were used to mimick the height of the citrus arrangement. Learn how to make this fold here.
The cylinder glass container is filled with halved lemons and limes. Kumquats are used to fill in the spaces so that there are no holes in the container. A fresh foam ball was used to create the floral top and could be removed for easier transit. Green Cymbidium Orchids, Pale Yellow Roses, Green Hypericum Berries, and Italian Ruscus were used to complete the arrangement.
