Any time we’re called upon to make a table centerpiece, we always make a dash out to the garden—both the flower and the vegetable gardens–to see what’s there to inspire us.
An abundance of peppers in the vegetable garden led to these fiery creations.
As you are putting your peppers into the vase, press them as tightly against one another and the edge of the bowl as possible. When you are about half-way around the bowl, cut a cube of floral foam to fit into the center of the vase to keep the peppers in place. You’ll want this to be a tight fit. Then continue filling the vase around the circumference. Use a few small peppers left on the stem in the actual bouquet to tie it all together.
Once you add the water, the appearance of the peppers will magnify creating a dramatic visual presentation–a great feast for the eyes to accompany whatever you put on the plate.
