  • a big bowl
  • plastic grocery bags
  • fruit
  • leaves

ASSEMBLE THIS EASY DECORATING IDEA

You don’t have to use lots of fruit or organics to fill your bowl for this arrangement, I have a fun hack for this!

Use plastic grocery bags or bubble wrap or pinecones in the bottom of a bowl.

Then just pile the fruit/organics on the top!

Put the fruit/organics on top of the plastic grocery bags.

The plastic grocery bags helps to fill up the bottom of the bowl so I can use less lemons!

The last step in this easy decorating idea is to add a few leaves to blur the holes between the lemons.

I found these pretty greens at my local grocery store. You can also use faux green to fill in the spaces between the lemons.

  1. Neutral rooms are lovely and restful. A little color such as the lemons with greenery keeps the room from being bland. The arrangement keeps the room looking fresh., such a simple idea! Thank you for the inspiration.

  2. LOVE! That simple and pretty arrangement!
    In that very neutral room that arrangement really brightens up this already pretty room.
    Is this the room you watch TV? Where did you place the TV?
