I make this every year and place in one of the rooms in the house. EASY & CHEAP yet looks elegant some of you may to do this at holiday time:
Take a different variety of frut IE: grapes lemons oranges limes (seem to works well. Wet down the fruit in eggwhite wash and sprinkle a good amount of sugar over it Dry on a cooling rack. When dryed place in a beautiful crystal bowl looks so beautiful this to can be done with flowers I always do the flowers the day of the event Poinsettia Lily and pansies work well.
