Lemon Lime Tree Centerpiece
This lemon and lime tree is simple and requires few supplies. Place it on your serving table or on the mantle for a colorful conversation piece that will get a lot of attention.
15-inch foam craft cone
1 display plate
40 to 50, 2-to-3-inch pieces of firm stem wire (18 gauge)
24 to 30 Paramount Citrus lemons
16 to 20 Paramount Citrus limes
2 bunches white silk flowers
1 large bow
1. Place the foam cone in the center of the plate. Starting at the bottom, insert a piece of wire halfway into the cone. Secure a lemon on the end of the stem wire. Continue to work your way around the base of the cone and then repeat a second layer of lemons.
2. Using the same method, add a layer of limes. Continue with two rows of lemons and finish with limes.
3. Cut the flowers to 1 to 2 inch stems. Use them to fill the gaps between the lemons and limes. Insert them into the foam if necessary to secure.
4. Tie the bow at the top or secure with more stem wire and the arrangement is ready to display.
