Lesha Cottrill creates these edible arrangements using all fresh fruits from Buehler’s produce department. She uses strawberries, cantaloupe, honeydew, pineapple, and grapes to make her floral designs and cuts them into various shapes using cookie cutters. A cheese cutter is used to give the cantaloupe and honeydew a wavy appearance. For decorations, she uses ribbons and bows from the flower department. They take about an hour and a half to two hours and a half to make, depending on the size of the order.

If you still want to incorporate chocolate into your gift, a few strawberries can be covered in a milk chocolate and lightly drizzled with white chocolate to satisfy your sweet tooth. Sizes and prices vary and can feed anywhere between two to 30 people. If stored properly, these edible arrangements have a shelf life of three days. They can also be delivered to your event.

All edible arrangements available at Buehler’s can be viewed on their website under the catering tab.
