Do you know that the fruits are the new flowers? At Christmas, try preparing your table with mandarins, oranges or “golden” pineapples and then placed them in vases, jars and containers with elegant shapes such as those found in the Florile Christmas Temporary Store in Via Santo Spirito in Florence.
But the real “fruit” of winter are pine cones, beautiful to look at and scented with precious resins. The advantage is that they don’t “age” and keep their charm unaltered for all holidays.
The most chic decorations for this Christmas, however, are those made with the “succulents” or with the Dutch tubers, a decidedly fashionable touch for your family dinners or for the year-end party with friends.
