The originality of thinking needlewomen has long crossed all imaginable and unimaginable limits of skill. From which only did not make bouquets: diapers and salted fish, beer cans and banknotes, even socks did not go unnoticed. But all these bouquets are not as beautiful in appearance and not as tasty as fruit.
It is very important that the flight of your imagination is not limited to anything. A set of products for a bouquet can be absolutely arbitrary. The main rule: fruits should be fresh, dense. The use of slightly immature fruits is allowed. Let's see what is necessary for the formation of the composition and how to make a bouquet of fruit with your own hands.
Before you start creating, you should immediately decide what purpose the bouquet will have. If this is a gift that will be eaten immediately, then we take the standard set of tools:
- Swords small or long (depending on the intended composition).
- A small piece of rope that will not fail and will not unleash at the most inopportune moment.
- Beautiful floral ribbon.
- A knife for cutting fruit, nippers for cutting the ends of a rope, scissors for a ribbon, molds for forming beautiful blanks.
If you are going to create a beautiful fruit composition for decorating the table, then you should immediately take care of its stability. Bouquets used for serving should stand for a long time and withstand all bad weather and surprises. The ideal option in this case would be a wicker openwork basket. If it is not at hand, then ordinary pot cans, flowerpots, wide kitchen containers and even salad bowls can be used.
What to take fruit?
The following fruits are best suited for creating a fruit composition: pineapple, watermelon, strawberry, kiwi, grapes, oranges. It is not recommended to take for the bouquets those fruits that eventually lose their saturated bright color or change it not for the better. For example, we do not recommend using apples, because after half an hour of standing in a vase, such a bouquet would not be presentable at all. Bananas also change color after cutting, so use them with caution.
The easiest option
How to make a bouquet of fruit with your own hands so that it does not take a lot of time? We offer you the simplest, but very unusual option. For the formation of the bouquet will need a small vase with a wide neck, long wooden skewers, molds and fruit.
Cut pineapple into circles. With the help of molds for cookies cut flowers. Cut the leaves or flowers together with a knife, but differ in shape from the pulp of the watermelon. Strawberries and grapes can not be crushed, they are sent to skewers whole. Bright green kiwi cut into long slices and neatly strung on wooden sticks.
It remains only to carefully draw the skewers with fruit in a vase. It is very important to think over the composition beforehand. If you know in advance how to make a bouquet of fruit, mentally imagine what it should be, then the work will go easier and faster.
Now let's talk about how to make a fruit bouquet with a base of vegetables. White cabbage will be the most inexpensive and beneficial vegetable base for the bouquet. Quite often dough is used for this purpose. But, you see, its preparation will take much more time than a couple of movements with a knife for cutting a head of cabbage.
- some kiwis;
- green apple;
- two kinds of grapes (black and green);
- a pineapple;
- some fresh parsley for decoration.
How to make a bouquet of fruit?
The size of the head should be chosen so that half of it fits well into the container of your choice. Even an ordinary kitchen bowl can be a chic flowerpot for a fruit bouquet, if properly decorated. We wash the cabbage well under running water. Inside the tank put half the head. It is necessary that its cut was even, then the cabbage lay on the bottom of the dish and pressed tightly to its edges.
Fruits also pre-wash well under running water. Pineapple cut into small rings, remove the peel and divide them into small triangles. With the help of small toothpicks (you can break one in half) and grapes decorate triangles. Apple rid of the skin and cut into slices. Of these, it is necessary to form a flower. Strawberries just pierce without cutting.
Now we form the composition. In the center of the cabbage head sticks flowers from apples. Around them are placed the triangles of pineapple with grape droplets. "Strawberry" skewers go in random order as an ornament.Green parsley leaves can be simply sprinkled between skewers, hiding the bottom of the composition.
If the fruit composition is not intended to decorate the festive table, but must be handed over personally to the hero of the anniversary, then we offer another option. How to make a bouquet of fruit, to immediately pass it from hand to hand? The process will take a minimum of time and effort.
First, prepare the long skewers. You will also need fresh, not overripe fruit and satin ribbon. Using a knife or special metal molds for cookies, we cut beautiful flowers from fruits. It is better for work to take pineapple, kiwi or watermelon. The flesh of these fruits perfectly keeps the given shape for a long time. We put on five or seven grapes at once on several skewers. We collect a bouquet. It will be necessary only to tie it with a beautiful satin ribbon and hand it to the hero of the occasion.
