That would look really neat. I love fruit in centerpieces its slightly eclectic but still beautiful.

great thread, i’m debating between fresh or artifical peaches for my centerpieces…

the blueberries on the suggested websites look great!  artificial is probably the way to go as far as they are concerned regarding price.

Has anyone ever tried that jello centerpiece tutorial from a while back? The photo has fake sunflowers suspended in jello. I wondered if you used unflavored gelatin if you could suspend the fake fruit in the vase/jar?

It was originally a Rachel Ray idea, but I can’t find the original article.

LOL, yeah, I guess I never thought about the Jello melting! EEP! I think that would need to be thought through a little or tested in a sunny window for a few hours to see how it holds up. I think there is some floral gel that will set the same, but I don’t have a clue what it is called.

Such a cute idea! I am contemplating using lemons.

@birdielove- i think lemons make beautiful centerpieces, especially if you coat them in sugar!!  i’m attaching pics.  then you can still use/eat the lemons (if anyone wants them).  i wanted to do it w/peaches but afraid i may ruin them.

@soontobemrsv- that’s true, blueberries tend to run pretty pricey.  this would be pretty, w/blueberries instead of cranberries, and you wouldn’t have to use as many.

Just make sure your blueberries don’t float before you buy a ton of them!
