package (8 oz) cream cheese
tablespoons sugar
2 containers (6 oz each) Yoplait® Thick & Creamy lemon supreme yogurt
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel, if desired
1 cup frozen (thawed) whipped topping

Heat oven to 350°F. In medium bowl, beat cream cheese and 2 tablespoons of the sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Beat in yogurt and lemon peel until well blended. Fold in whipped topping. Cover and refrigerate while making biscuit cups.

Cut 8 (18x12-inch) sheets of foil. Slightly crush each sheet to make a 2 1/2-inch ball; flatten balls slightly. Place on large ungreased cookie sheet.

We simply added 8 yellow mums and a few clippings of leather fern, for an arrangement that will last many days if wilted flowers are replaced or removed as needed.

Get step-by-step photos for this centerpiece

Lemon Lime Centerpiece
• Bowl, platter, or tray
• 24 small lemons and limes (or enough for your container)
• 8-12 flowers
• 3 stems leather leaf, cut up

Arrange fruit in your container.

Next, cut the flower stems to about 3-6" long and insert between the fruit. Note: Ripening fruit can cause fresh flowers to wilt so be sure to add flowers only an hour or so before your party.

Clip 3 stems of leather leaf into shorter sprigs and insert between the fruit, around the rim of the bowl.

Tip: Flowers may last several hours without water. To make an arrangement last longer, fill the bottom of the bowl with water and cut flower stems long enough to reach down to the water. Or, use clear floral water tubes for each flower stem, inserting both a flower and a leaf sprig into the tube.
