21 November 2011 3,194 views Article By:

At Bride Online we see lots and lots of wedding trends come and go… some good, some bad and some down right awful.

The latest trend we have spotted is equal parts eco and awesome. Fruit centerpieces!

Inexpensive (depending on which fruits you use), eco friendly and doubles up a as a desert!
Fruit centerpieces are a whole lot cheaper than flowers and can either be eaten by your guests or donated to a charity like Second Bite who distributes perfectly food to those who need it. Its double feel good factor!

Depending on your location and the season fruit should be readily available and in season, you can also ask your florist to source this for you and incorporate it into a floral arrangament if you are wanting something more than just fruit on the table.

Make sure you style the fruit if you aren’t using any other props, otherwise it could end up looking like someone left a fruit bowl on the table… Try to stick to thick skinned fruits to avoid them splitting or spoiling and make sure everything you put out is edible and not a rare poisonous berry!
