In continuing with my tangerine theme, I have created a tropical centerpiece  with bougainvilleas, birds of paradise, tropical foliage, and seasonal tangerines.

For more memorable centerpieces, tablescapes, and recipes (including gluten free recipes), please check out my book, Entertaining From an Ethnic Indian Kitchen, at my website

I am joining Susan's Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday and
Ms. Beverly's How Sweet the Sound.


  1. beautiful! Love the colors ... so fresh and inviting. Thanks for sharing.

  2. What a stunning centerpiece! The combination of fruit and flowers is just lovely.

  3. I love the mixture of fruit and flowers. I've done this with vegetables as well (artichokes, eggplant, etc.) Beautiful centerpiece.

  4. Hello Komali,
    this is one of the prettiest centerpieces I ever saw. I love the mix of flowers and fruits. Look somehow like from the paradise. I love citrus plants and of course the fruits, too. Your book is so gorgeous. At the moment I show it in my blog post about Tea Time Tuesday. All people are as thrilled about it as I am.
    Have a nice week.
    Greetings, Johanna
