Daisy Bento

I packed this bento late last night so I could just grab it and go to work this morning... but I ended up leaving the house later than I wanted to anyway. Oh well. lol
I didn't know how I was going to decorate this bento when I started, but I ended up with a Daisy/flower theme. Sometimes it's cool to start making a bento without a plan and see where my creativity brings me.
  • Bean Salad (over Lettuce)
  • Carrot Flower
  • Watermelon Hearts
  • Rice Pudding (No Sugar Added)
  • Cinnamon Flower (It got a little messed up right before I took the picture...)
I sliced a baby carrot and arranged the petal shaped pieces into a flower, and I added one of my flower stem picks.
To make the cinnamon flower on top of the rice pudding, I put a daisy/flower cutter on top and I carefully spooned in some ground cinnamon. I slightly submerged the tip of a flower stem pick into the pudding, and I carefully removed the flower cutter. Unfortunately, I bumped into bento box and made the cinnamon spread.
I added little flower stem picks to the heart watermelon to make some Love-ly pink flowers. ;)


  1. Your bento looks delicious! I love the cinnamon flower in the rice pudding.
