Strawberry Ornament


In medieval Europe, strawberries were served at festivals and important state occasions to ensure peace and prosperity. They were carved into church pillars to symbolize perfection and righteousness. In provincial France, strawberries were once considered an aphrodisiac, so newlyweds were traditionally served a strawberry soup. Even though you may hang this on a Christmas tree in the winter, this deep red, glittery strawberry ornament will make you long for the start of summer, when strawberries are in season.
