Many is the bride who’s shuddered at the cost of the floral centrepieces for her reception tables. As pretty as they are, the cost can run into hundreds of pounds and, well, they’re flowers – they’ll be dead in a few days, anyway. Look carefully at the floral arrangement on the right, though. It’s perfect for a wedding, with its cute little love hearts, but look a little closer and you’ll see that these aren’t flowers at all – no, they’re strawberries, with some other fruits mixed in for good measure.
This is a Passionleaf arrangement (you may have seen them on Big Brother), and the great thing about them is that once they’ve done their job decorating your tables, your guests can get tucked into them during the speeches – good value for money, if you ask me. This particular arrangement is £49, but there are lots of others to choose from. And no one can call good food a waste of money now, can they? Fruit Like Flowers, who we’ve featured before, offer a similar service.
