Dish Garden

Last weekend I attended my nephew's wedding engagement in New Jersey. During that visit, we stayed at the Double Tree hotel. As some of you may know, when you check-in, the Double Tree staff welcomes you with their famous warm gooey chocolate chip cookies. As I was indulging in the most delicious chocolate chip cookie, I became enamored with the dish garden in the lobby. You can create something similar to this arrangement with a supermarket's flowering plants, orchid plants and driftwood.

I didn't recognize this unusual fruit at the bottom used as an accent.
For more memorable centerpieces, tablescapes, and recipes (including vegetarian, gluten free and vegan recipes), please check out my book, Entertaining From an Ethnic Indian Kitchen, at my website komalinunna.com.

I am joining Savvy Southern Style and Tablescape Thursday.
