Centerpiece Design for Kentucky Derby Run for the Roses Event

Tina Fottler Sawtelle, the talented owner of Pinewoods Yankee Farm in Lee, NH, had a fabulous idea to incorporate our locally-sourced, Fun to Eat Fruit apples into floral centerpieces for the UNH Therapeutic Riding Program‘s Run for the Roses Silent Auction & Dinner.

Tina, a longtime supporter of this program, donated her labor as well as the centerpieces.

Fun to Eat Fruit is Perfect for Floral Centerpiece Arrangements

Fun to Eat Fruit is perfect for floral arrangements. “Any corporate event could include the fruit with their logo into their floral centerpieces. Apples and citrus would be beautiful worked into floral centerpieces with wedding monograms,” says Tina Fottler Sawtelle. Tina provides year-round artisan floral design and she grows cut flowers during the New Hampshire growing season. Her designs feature her own, and locally grown, flowers when in season.
