I am so excited to share this boxwood and oranges counter-scape idea. My favorite décor ideas happen when I am working on a completely unrelated project. This counter-scape (no clue if that is a legit term) was an instant creation when I paired boxwood and oranges. Did I mention this happened an hour before a neighborhood Christmas party. I am most creative when I am on a deadline.
Regarding my boxwood binge.. I blame it on my addiction to my favorite décor site. This fall I found myself with several boxwood wreaths of different sizes. None of the boxwood wreaths were large enough for my windows or doors so I began to stash them around the house. It added a pop of green and also hid my addiction to Décor Steals.
More recently I created a wreath or centerpiece using boxwood and recycled tree branches. I shared how that centerpiece idea was the result of a successful parallel parking venture next to a landscaper and his crew in a Cherry Creek; a popular area in Denver.
With a refrigerator full of party trays and a pantry stuffed with anything abandoned my family members, I had no place to stash a bag of Cutie oranges. I was grabbing a boxwood wreath, that never found a home in the kitchen, a white farmhouse bowl from favorite décor site, and a bag of petite oranges. I literally stacked them on top of each other with the intention to
store shove into a cabinet. And then I saw the contrast between the white porcelain bowl, the green boxwood and the orange Cuties. Boom! It was an instant centerpiece or counter-scape.
This may be one of my favorite ideas in the kitchen. It clears the clutter and turns into a statement counter-piece; like a tablescape but for the counters. This could easily be adapted for all the seasons and seasonal fruit.
