Thrifty Florals

I attempted to do my own floral arrangements for the opening reception of Moveable Feast: Fresh Produce and the NYC Green Cart Program. I wanted to incorporate fruit into the decor since the entire exhibition focuses on fresh produce! Visit the Museum of the City of New York to see this great new exhibit.

1 cylindrical vase, 6 mandarin oranges (sliced in half - tip, chill the fruit before cutting for easier slicing), and one dozen roses.

This arrangement comes in at about $7 (especially when you get the double dozen rose packs for $10 bucks from your neighborhood bodega!).

Thanks to Andrew Hinderaker for the photos!
