An Edible Centerpiece For Christmas

edible Christmas centerpieces

I love making these edible arrangements.  And there’s no better time than the holidays to adorn your table with a beautiful centerpiece … that you can eat.  A big part of the fun is the adventure of shopping at our Santa Barbara Farmers Market to pick out all the bounty.  The ingredients that make up this piece are: fruits and vegetables, nuts, succulents, herbs and snippets of pine.

I had the pleasure of spending the afternoon with Teresa O’Connor a few weeks ago and was thrilled when she asked me to do a guest post on this very subject on her blog, Seasonal Wisdom.  Click HERE to view the guest post which tells you exactly what I used to make this piece, where it came from and of course, to see lots of pictures too.  Watch the video below and you’ll see the step by step creation of this piece as well as how fast it actually come together.  You’ll also meet my kitty Oscar who loves to be part of any photography or video shoots we do in the house.  

May your holiday season be merry, tasty and bright!

  1. Thanks so much for designing this seasonal tablescape for Seasonal Wisdom. It’s easy to make, but lasts nearly the entire holiday season. Plus, so much of the arrangement is edible! Have a wonderful holiday yourself! Teresa

  2. My pleasure Teresa – it’ always fun to share. The colors of this arrangement are very rich & would go with almost any color scheme. A wonderful holiday season to you too. I look forward to seeing you in 2014! Cheers, Nell
