A bunch of flowers with a carrot

Carrots are so colourful & it can be used in many food garnishes. Here I have done a flower vase using some flowers carved from a carrot & using some other leaves.

What you need is:

A carrot
Few grapes (You can find alternatives)
Few spinach, curry leaves & spring onion
Few skewers & tooth picks
A vase, glass or suitable thing to hold flowers
A knife for carving

First peel the carrot

Cut & remove some strips from the carrot as per below picture.And there should be five strips removed

Then slice the carrot & you will see the shape as of flowers.

Use half of grapes & skewers/tooth picks & make few flowers as below.

Now you are ready with few flowers.Then it is time for the arrangement.
Use some green leaves (I used curry leaves,spring onion & spinach which I had inside my fridge :) )
Decorate as you wish

I am sure the dining table will be colourful & special within few minutes.And it is really easy to make.

Now I am sharing this with,
