Fruit is not just for Fruitcakes at Christmas Time!

Fruit seems to naturally belong in Christmas decor. Costco provided a beautiful array of fruit to use for Christmas decorating this year. We made a frozen ice bucket of roses and cranberries with greens. Using more red roses for a centerpiece, we added lemons and pomegranates. Red velvet cupcakes perched on top of small trifle dishes, filled with cranberries. A chocolate ganache cake, embellished with sugared lady apples, kumquats, and cherries, sat upon a larger trifle dish, filled with submerged hydrangeas and berries. Fresh, perfectly formed, persimmons and pomegranates added a shot of color to the evergreen and candle display on the coffee table.
