Farmers' Market Centerpieces

Get creative with your backyard barbecue centerpiece by creating a farmers’ market-style paper-bag-and-fruit grouping. First, gather bags in different heights and colors, as well as fruits ranging in different shades and tints of the same hue. Next add weight to the bottom with a 2” to 4”-thick layer of pea gravel topped with foam packing peanuts until the bag is two-thirds full. Lastly, add fruit along the top of each bag, rising approximately 2” above the top. Add another layer of visual interest to each bag with ribbon or burlap, and be sure to group bags together with a balanced range of heights and spacing.
