Edible Arrangements

Instead of fresh flowers or candy, give an arrangement of fresh fruit. Edible Arrangements’ stunning fruit arrangements range from adorable to sophisticated, and the creativity and quality of the ingredients make them a truly unique gift. Fruits are skewered to form floral shapes, which are placed in festive vases that can serve as table centerpieces and then passed at dessert time. Arrangements are made locally and can be delivered on short notice, depending on the individual store (check the website for the store nearest to you). This is also a “thank you” gift that won’t be forgotten.

  • From $45
