Do It Yourself, or DIY, wedding projects allow you to create your own personalized favors and touches that can be applied in any way you can imagine on your special day, for a shower or party. All you need are some basic items and a little creativity.
Anyone can make this simple and budget-friendly Do It Yourself Fresh Fruit and Flowers Centerpiece! Use an assortment of fresh fruits and vegetables with mini bouquets to make pretty centerpieces. Our favorite turned out to be the fragrant pineapple bouquet! See other do-it-yourself wedding projects.
Another way you can use these? Try nestling votive candles inside of the fruits and vegetables, instead of flowers. Super cute...right?
