summer produce on display / sfgirlbybay

something that might be often overlooked is how just a simple bowl of summer fresh fruit or veggies, like heirloom tomatoes or artichokes, for instance, look so pretty out on display in your kitchen or dining table. it’s something i always see in european homes but not quite as often here in the states and it’s really just so appealing to me, and clearly so easy to do. it’s kind of obvious, but sometimes we tuck our fresh produce away in the fridge instead of keeping it within reach. if you’re like me (and i’m trying to get much better at this!) i often forget about that apple in the crisper and before i know it, it’s gone to waste. so, i’ve been keeping a lot of fresh fruits on a ceramic platter and a lovely black marble bowl full of lemons (they smell so good) out on my countertop after my trip to the weekly farmers market — and it makes me feel a little bit like i’m living on the amalfi coast, or perhaps Provence — it’s a lovely illusion, anyway, and a practice i’ve really begun to embrace. they always add them in photoshoots, so why not save a little on fresh flowers and instead display colorful produce that you can actually eat instead? not to mention, the vessels and hanging baskets themselves can be so gorgeous and they can make for incredible tablescapes for entertaining, too! if you’re in need of some display inspiration, i follow both @herriottgrace and @fruitassembly on instagram for some uniquely beautiful ideas.
