Jennifer Spiegel, the co-owner of Fork and Spoon Productions, shares her tips for the perfect spring floral arrangement.

Spring floral centerpiece tips:

  • Spray paint branches from your backyard white
  • Cut a hole in a big piece of floral foam, stick a vase in it
  • Adhere daisies to tree branches with glue dots
  • Stick daisies into smal floral foam pieces, place in birdcages, and tie a ribbon on top
  • Good for a bridal shower or for Mother's Day

Birdcages can be found at Coast floral supply store at the Flower Mart and cost about $7.

About Jennifer Spiegel and Fork and Spoon Productions:
Jennifer has spent the last twenty years honing her skills at many nationally acclaimed restaurants such as Wolfgang Puck's Postrio and Spago, Hawthorne Lane and Iron Horse Winery. Prior to attending the Culinary Institute of America, Jennifer worked witht he west coas stylist for Metropolitan Home Magazine and the Los Angeles Sunday Times. It was there that she acquired her eye for design, color and composition, styling for such publications as Starbucks, Lee Bailey Southern Foods and Architectural Digest.

Always an enthusiastic parth thrower, it was during a much-needed sabbatical that Fork and Spoon Productions was conceived. As many business tories begin, it was a "one time favor" helping out a distressed friend with a dinner party that Jennifer realized a golden opportunity and Fork and Spoon Productions was born.
