fruited basket

Dress up a ready-made basket of evergreens for an efficient, value-added design.

A ready-made arrangement of noble fir and western red cedar, along with pine cones and artificial red berries, makes a timesaving base for a quick, fragrant holiday arrangement. Fresh oranges and limes are simply picked into the evergreen design, with clove oil used to slow deterioration around the puncture and keep the fruit fresh longer. Keeping with the efficient theme of this holiday composition, a festive wired ribbon is simply tied, in a two-loop bow, to the handle of the basket, adding a vibrant finishing flourish. ■

MATERIALS: Basket Centerpiece from The Hiawatha Corporation; wired satin ribbon from Reliant Ribbon; double pointed wood picks from W.J. Cowee; oranges, limes and clove oil from local market.

Dip one end of each double-pointed wood pick into clove oil, and insert it into a fresh orange or lime. When all fruit has been picked, arrange it into the basket centerpiece..
