In my opinion, what makes decor memorable is the element of surprise. Finding some way to amaze and delight, no matter how slight, will leave a lasting impression.
Which brings us to fruit. It's unexpected yet an element that can work beautifully with the right flower arrangement. I love using sliced pieces of lime to line a vase. Not only does this provide a great punch of colour but it offers a frugal way to decorate. Plus, it has the added bonus of having a certain 'wow' factor. People do a double-take as they're not used to seeing fruit mixed in with flowers.
Get creative – great decor is about using beautiful elements in unexpected ways.
