To add a bit of contrasting color and visual interest to our bouquet, we threaded sliced lemons onto skewers and used a toothpick to secure a blueberry in the middle of each one, to create a different type of “flower.” This would also work well with orange slices and was another easy task for the kids to complete.
Finally, we arranged our flowers in a small tin flower pot. To keep the pot from tipping, I placed a whole lemon in the bottom. I stuck strips of transparent tape across the top of the pot in a grid pattern before inserting the bamboo skewers to help the fruit flowers stay upright. Then I used a bit of green crinkle paper Easter grass to fill the pot and hide the tape lines.
