Fruit Carving Lessons for making centerpieces for Christmas and other celebrations

If you want a mini-melon baller to use for making your holiday arrangements, it comes in my set of corrugated U-cutters.

Kamquats can also be pretty for your centerpieces for Christmas

One type of fruit that I forgot to mention in the video that would be pretty to use to cover tree forms or wreaths are kumquats. You know, those little tiny oval shaped orange colored citrus fruits? They would be colorful to use on centerpieces for Christmas and the holidays.

It’s would be kind of like the citrus decoration that takes place at the Orange Festival in Southern France, although on a much, much smaller scale.

Take a look at the amazing decorating with Oranges that goes on there. These photos were sent to me by one of my students, Panayiota Thoma. Amazing isn’t it? Those are all oranges and lemons.

I’m getting sidetracked here. The point I wanted to made is that kumquats would be pretty to use for your centerpieces for Christmas.

Oh, one more thing. It’s probably not a good idea to eat vegetable and fruits that have been in contact with styrofoam. It’s probably best that your veggies arranged in Styrofoam be for display purposes only. Or, you could coat our styrofoam with fondant or icing. Or you could wrap it in plastic wrap prior to adding your veggies and fruit for your arrangement.

Have fun being creative making your Centerpieces for Christmas.
