    I was thinking playing cards. But it’s probably flowers.

    Great to see Daily Riddle up and running after so long.. :) Hello all

    I think the answer is a “Deal”. Like a Business Deal. You put a deal on the table when negotiating and you “cut a deal” when its agreed by all parties.

    what do u all think?

    I thought about cards too in the beginning. Cards and deals ( business or negotiation) were two things that immediately came to me. The tense “is put on a table” should have some significance beyond the obvious and while referring to Cards it’s is not so.

    If you refer to cards as in a deck of playing cards then putting on a table has no significance. If you refer to metamorphical cards as an analogy for strategic options , a la ” hold cards close to chest” or “lay your cards on the table” – the term “cut” seems misplaced there..

    hence my conclusion to it being “deals”. Both terms – putting a deal on the table and cutting a deal are commonplace.

    P.S. Quite a few flowers find their way into cooking
    Will the moderator help us by giving the answer :)

    I think the “best” answer is actually a deck of cards.

    What about the wood the table top is made of? It’s put on top, cut and never eaten.
