DIY We Love: Incorporating Fruit into Decor!

Incorporating fruit decor into your wedding has become increasingly popular over the past couple of years and I don't see them going away anytime soon! If you want to add a splash of color into your decor and become more budget-friendly in the making when creating your centerpieces, try simple ideas like these:

Or if you're interested in using fruit in different ways, why not use them as escort cards!

You could sprinkle the fruit around your escort card table and use candy to hold your cards too!

I also want to share with you, one my DIY projects from way back before I was a bride or planning a wedding. During my undergrad, and being a Dietetics student, I was required to help plan a formal meal in one of my cooking classes a few years ago. Of course, I love to think outside the box and be different, so I decided to incorporate fruit into our menu cards that we placed at each place setting. Check them out below!

I typed up the menu card and alternated with plum and yellow cardstock and ribbon to match the pineapple and grapes used. I purchased a daisy cookie cutter, a pineapple and a bag of large grapes. I managed to cut about 12 slices from the pineapple and I simply cut the daisy out of the slices with the cookie cutter.

In this photo, you can see me along with my two classmates. We were all in charge of different aspects of the meal, and mine included the main entree and decor (of course!).

Here are the menu cards on the table, at a place setting:

Think outside the box. Be creative! But most of all, have fun!
