Well, maybe my title isn’t exactly true…I mean, only a few of these details are actually edible! But the rest are delicious eye candy for sure!

I am in love with dahlias … and think you should be too! They have a beautiful texture, they have a large, full head, they come in a variety of colors and shapes and they look great in a centerpiece or bouquet.
