I didn't have any flowers so I looked around the house to see what was interesting. I thought the aloe plant would give some dimension to the picture and interest.
I used a speed light for the grapes and tomatoes; and a LED light for the books. I think the LED gave a more natural light.
I like the tomatoes and grapes in the picture because I think they compliment the pointy aloe with some roundness.
In the pictures with the books I was trying to simulate a light coming from a window above the plant.
