Turnip Inspired Floral Design

Words, Photography and Design by Ashley Bailey

I fell hard for the look of these amazing black turnips as I walked into Whole Foods. I knew I was supposed to be looking for purple but I mean really, how often do you come across black food that isn’t burnt? All I could see in my head were these amazing black turnips that surely when cut open would spill out bloody reds, deep pinks and magnificent purples. I couldn’t have been more wrong. White as snow they were but just as lovely. Don’t ask me what they taste like-I was too busy figuring out how to arrange them with my gorgeous peonies, orchids, greens and wax flower to bother with a taste test. They make me want to eat this yummy arrangement.
