  • Add water to the inner vase if preparing more than two hours in advance. Pack parsley into the center well of the vase to create a mounded foundation for the arrangement.

  • Remove root end of celery head and set aside larger stalks for another use. Create height by adding in the celery hearts, leaves facing up. Add in kale leaves.

  • Add carrots to the arrangement point-end up.

  • Skewer clusters of cherry tomatoes into the kale and parsley with small bamboo toothpicks. Tuck rosemary and/or mint into the arrangement to accent.

Tips

To make ahead: Fill inner vase with water. Invert a plastic bag loosely over the arrangement. Keep the arrangement cool. If necessary, spritz with cold water to keep the vegetables hydrated.

Equipment: 2 glass vases: one about 3 inches square by 6 inches tall and one about 6 inches square
