Lemons and Limes for Creative Centerpieces

This container is actually upside down, though really you could go either way. The base plate is filled with a small amount of water with daisy heads evenly placed around the perimeter.

Cut a piece of floral foam about one inch smaller than the inside of the container. Saturate the foam with floral food-water mix. Fill the perimeter with water and sliced limes. Poke five ranunculus into the floral foam (Other large blooms like large roses, gerbera daisies and hydrangea would also work well and keep the same feel.).
