Fruit was all around me during a recent trip south of the border — and I'm not just talking about my margaritas! Not only were perfectly ripened oranges, lemons, mangoes, and limes readily available as a quick way to curb a sweet tooth, but the fresh fruit was also used as decorations nearly everywhere.
Desperate to bring a piece of my tropical vacation home, I've been looking for the perfect way to reproduce this look in my home. I'm thinking of starting off easy by placing lemons in a simple glass bowl such as this Pottery Barn Pinch Large Serve Bowl ($39), but any crop could liven up the right space. The lovely citrus will forever remind me of my time on the beach, but do you already decorate with fruit?
