    Though I haven't seen one in person, I've seen them online and they are gorgeous! I'd love to get one myself!

    I think I've had one of those -- it involved chocolate-dipped strawberries, as I recall, plus a lot of other fruits. It was nice.

    Does that look good! A wonderful idea for a wedding shower. I wonder if they could somehow be incorporated into a table centerpiece that the guests could nibble on? Any thoughts?

    Send yourself one! That's one of the few ways of getting what you really want. I'm sure you deserve it!

    I second that.

    Famita, go to the website. They look like bouquets of flowers. They come in vases, so it would be a great edible centerpiece.

    I'm glad to hear good reviews. I think this would be a nice treat for her and something different than flowers. She's not even able to shop for herself anymore and gets most meals delivered, so having some fresh fruit would probably be a great treat.

    I want one too but I'd have to order it for myself as no one else would send me one.

    My aunt is turning 85 next week. There is a party, but I obviously can't attend. I thought about sending flowers, but thought this might be something different. Her health is getting fragile, so I know that there won't be too many more birthdays, so I really wanted to do something nice for her. She's always been so good to me and my daughter.

    But the edible bouquets are fruit made to look like flowers. The website looks nice, but I don't know anyone that has had any experience from them, so was hoping to get some feedback before I ordered.
    The chocolate covered bananas are wonderful!!! People have raved over getting these instead of regular flowers.

    You know, sending yourself something like this is one way of knowing (hopefully) exactly what you are sending to someone else!

    I would think that's a lovely gift for a senior, mrd, especially if they don't have family members nearby to shop for them. Harry and David also has a large variety of fruits, flowers, candies, etc. My mom used to send H&D gifts to faraway relatives, and they always loved them. I have to admit, though, everytime I see the Fruit-of-the-Month link, I'm reminded of the Everybody Loves Raymond episode where Ray gives that as a gift to his parents, and Marie comes unglued at the thought of receiving boxes of fruit every month for a year.
