For my sister's birthday surprise birthday party, I created a fruit bouquet.  I've seen ads for these lovely bouquets you can order, but they were price-prohibitive for this event, so I stumbled along and tried my hand at it myself.  She was pleased, anyway, and I think it turned out okay.  Thoughts?  Comments?

Have we got some internal sequin issues, Benjamin?

Thanks so much!  Next time, I'll try to figure out how to hide the "stems" better.

I think that's fantastic, I'd be absolutely ecstatic if I received a bouquet like that.
Wouldn't last long though. :p

An idea for the stems ; you can get green florists paper tape that's green, from craft stores.

It's pretty much for reasons exactly like this, Just wrap it around the skewers and you're set!

It looks great. Much better than the ones that you can buy for $50.

Looks great! Considering the prices for professionally-arranged fruit bouquets, it is SO much easier to do it yourself. Gorgeous and I'm sure it was a hit!

I used to work right next to a fruit arrangement store and every time I walked past I'd think "I could do that!" but never did. Yours looks so delicious. The chocolate strawberries sounds so good right now.

I was driving today and next to me was a catering van. On it, there was a fruit bouquet.
I recalled seeing yours here on craftster. Honestly, the picture on the truck looked JUST like yours.
Great job.
