Fresh Produce as Design Element: How Do You Display Yours?

With the waning days of summer, our less than hardy New England hearts break just a little more, dreading the onslaught of winter. Along with the warm days, go the abundant locally grown produce in vibrant colors. A friend has been encouraging us to blog about the delight of displaying produce decoratively, as an element of design in your space (until you consume it, of course). We want to know how you take advantage of the natural beauty of your food to add beauty to your space...

Admittedly, we're not fervent cooks but once in a while we go a little overboard, buying large quantities of fruits and vegetables. We display it on a yard sale tray on a table island in the middle of our kitchen. The tray's central location is impossible to miss, reminding us to use the bounty before it dies, but it also brings us great aesthetic joy every time we walk into the kitchen. Now, if only we liked cooking as much as designing...

How do you "display" your produce?
