Think outside of the fruit bowl and tuck some edible goodness into flower bouquets as well. Black grapes look striking against hydrangeas and eucalyptus leaves. Pinecones and mini artichokes still look "floral," but add a different texture. Play around with combinations to see what looks interesting.
