Kitchen Garden Decor

This is my entry to Talk of Tomatoes' creative event: Centerpiece of the Month.

Do you have friends that give you the most amazing and thoughtful gifts? For us, those friends are the wonderfully innovative S & C. They get us incredibly unique and fun gifts that usually symbolize our mutual love for food :) Also, the fact that they live in the Gourmet Ghetto in Berkeley definitely helps!

On their last visit to our home, they got us this one of a kind vase hand made by a local artisan. They had filled this vase with fresh organic fruits and vegetables picked straight out of their backyard. As you can see this made for a perfect centerpiece brightening up some cold winter days!

The best part of this gift is that we got to savor the fruits and veggies in many different forms for days to come. Not to mention the versatility of the vase, which looks just as amazing with tulips, orchids, candles, sand and stone, and just pretty much anything you put in it. We cannot thank our friends S & C enough for yet another great find !
