How to Make a Strawberry Tree Centerpiece


If you are looking for an elegant centerpiece for your dining room table, a strawberry tree just might fit the bill. Not only will the strawberry tree wow your guests, it will make for a great dessert once the night is through. Making a strawberry tree centerpiece may sound difficult, but it is actually quite easy.

Step 1

Choose a round centerpiece base for your strawberry tree. You can find these at a craft store or at a store that sells kitchen ware.

Step 2

Cut a piece of floral foam to fit in the centerpiece. Shape the floral foam so that it takes the shape of a cone. The pointy end should be at the top.

Step 3

Wash all of your strawberries and remove the stems.

Step 4

Stick a toothpick in the top of each strawberry. Push it in halfway so that other half can be pushed in to the floral foam.

Step 5

Melt chocolate in a double broiler. You can do milk chocolate, dark chocolate and white chocolate. If you have don't have three double broilers, just do one at a time.

Step 6

Dip one-fourth of the strawberries in milk chocolate and then set them on a sheet of wax paper. Dip one-fourth of the strawberries in the dark chocolate, and one-fourth of them in the white chocolate. Leave the last one-fourth of the strawberries plain.

Step 7

Set the strawberries in the refrigerator until the chocolate hardens.

Step 8

Remove the strawberries from the fridge and push them in to the floral foam. Mix it up so that you don't have a bunch of the same-colored strawberries in one spot. Do this until the strawberry tree is full.
