Leafy Greens Bouquet
Looking for a fresh and unique idea for your Mother’s Day table this year? This concept is actually great for any occasion or even when you have some leafy greens left over and want a special setting for your kitchen counter or dinner table.
This bouquet is a gardener’s dream. What could be better than using natural & organic greens to surround yourself with! You can get creative with the ingredients too… use what you have on hand or is readily available at your local farmer’s market or grocery store.
I used beautiful rainbow chard with it’s large, veiny leaves. I love the particular drama it adds to the bouquet! I also used dinosaur kale with it’s high texture and interesting color. I cut the aromatic and frilly fronds from a fennel bulb and used them for filler along with some parsley and red kale.
Just make sure all the produce is fresh and hydrated when you purchase it.
The portion that will be submersed in the vase under water should be stripped of as much of the leaf as possible, to prevent premature rotting
Fill your vase with the large-leafed greens first…
And fill in the gaps with your smaller greens to compliment
Set out and enjoy!
