The original recipe for Winter Wonderland probably came from a wedding. I honestly don't remember, but often times I will use soup bowls or serving bowls as vessels. It's all about using what you have on hand.
In this video, I recreate the recipe, substituting some of the flowers for what's in season. Open a cupboard, and you'll be surprised to see how many things you can use as a vase!
This wood serving bowl is only $17 from Ikea and looks super sleek. And these soup bowls are so universal from Target! You can even make little posies of flowers in the mugs. So cute! Perfect to place on a desk to brighten your day all week.
Please tag me in your flower creations if you post on Instagram! I love looking at all of the photos! @theflowerchef
I was browsing on Pinterest and came across an all green salad, when I realized I had random ingredients in my fridge that I would've never thought to put together before. I didn't end up eating this salad until two days later and it was still fresh and tasted great! Next time, I will omit the kale, and just have a delicious green fruit salad.
This is for 1 very large serving, but I would just cut up the entire amount and have it for a few days!
1/2 apple chopped
1/2 avocado chopped
1/2 pear chopped
2 cups kale
large drizzle balsamic vinegar
large drizzle EVOO
Place in a bowl all together, mix, and enjoy! Pro tip: Cover the salad with a damp paper towel instead of tin foil to keep it fresh.
I used a perrier bottle for my vase. To reflex tulips simply bend back each petal. I have a video on reflexing roses and it's also in The Flower Chef.
