Kelley, Shauna and I all used fruit when we styled our vases.  Fruit and flowers go together naturally and are such an easy way to add interest to an arrangement.  I chose to use a white vase one of my best friends gave to me, I love it’s shape.  Pink roses and some eucalyptus would have been lovely on their own, but I wanted to add an unexpected pop.  I grew up in Southern California, so I added some clementines on bamboo skewers for sentiment.  This arrangement was so simple, anyone could put it together.  Give it a try!
