Dyed Fruit Centerpiece

 I recently stumbled upon an old fruit still life drawing I did back in college which got me thinking about fruit centerpieces. I decided to do a fruit centerpiece with a twist. I peeled three pears and an apple and dyed different parts with neon food coloring. I cut little slits in the pears to slide in the table numbers I had printed out. By covering the fruit with lemon juice once you peel them, it keeps them from going brown, makes them smell nice too! Fruit can be a great and less expensive alternative to floral centerpieces at an event!
