Hello my name is Crystal Nassar with Tuscany Florist in Rancho Mirage, California and I am going to show you how to make a vegetable flower arrangement. I am going to start with an arrangement using larkspur, veronica, solidago, mint and delphinium and we're going to add the vegetables to this arrangement. Now that the arrangement is made I am going to take my artichoke and I have some wire, it's a little thicker. I am going to insert the wire into the stem of the artichoke just so that I have a little bit extra to secure it in to the arrangement so it goes through real easy, stick it in and kind of bend it down and I'm going to cut it a little bit, I don't want to do too much. Cut that wire and then get the artichoke in there nice so it's not going to be falling out. I am going to put another artichoke on the other side, stick it through the stem again. O'kay and I am going to stick this artichoke here and make sure it is going to sit in there nice and stick that artichoke in there nice and tight. O'kay, now that's gorgeous. You can use other types of vegetables. You can use colorful vegetables like peppers, the red peppers, you can use the green peppers. You can use pumpkin squash for Fall weddings. You can actually carve out a pumpkin and place the arrangement inside a pumpkin. There is all kinds of different vegetables you can use, sometimes gorgeous lettuce you can use so just be creative with your vegetables.
