As a bona fide foodie, I’m always looking for ways to incorporate food into my designs. Not the edibles themselves, but certainly the colors and textures they bring to life! Since nature has a wonderful way of creating seasonal hues, I always heed to its magnificence with a hunger for more.
So give me 15 minutes of your time and I’ll give you a entire evening of fabulous food-inspired flame.
In less time than it takes to peel an onion, I grabbed an extra bag of lentils, an odd number of juice glasses, orange votive candles and some raffia to design this fun and flavorful centerpiece that any holiday enthusiast would enjoy.
Turns out, it was chosen as centerpiece of the month for the Special Holiday Collector’s Issue of Rachael Ray Magazine.
For the bean counter in you, this self-explanatory project is an affordable way to let your next get-together shine while putting your table in the right light. And, it’s as easy as pumpkin pie.
If not lentils, what food item would you showcase? I’d love to hear in the comments below.
Until next time…
