For her 25th wedding anniversary, Audrey D’Souza’s 13-year-old son Angelo carved three beautiful edible vegetable bouquets. She was kind enough to share her story and a few photos with me.
Angelo discovered my website while searching the internet for vegetable carving ideas. Although he didn’t have enough time to order the tools and ship them all the way to New Zealand, he was able to watch my free lessons and find a suitable tool set near his home. The final product were these gorgeous edible vegetable bouquets. These creations are impressive for anyone, especially for a 13-year-old.

Angelo’s Edible Vegetable Bouquet
Now the only question is whether we’re more impressed by Angelo’s incredible talent with carving edible vegetable bouquets or his thoughtful gift to his parents!
Kids Create More Than Edible Vegetable Bouquets
I also received an email from Sandra Foley about another talented 13-year-old carver. Sandra’s daughter Sarah carved a watermelon rose for her school after watching my Carving Watermelons course.
I am thrilled to say that thanks to your videos & lessons, our 13 yr.
old daughter was able to carve a beautiful watermelon rose with
leaves. We featured it as the centerpiece in a large fruit buffet
that we set up in her school’s Teacher Lounge – as a gesture for one
teacher’s upcoming wedding.
We were immediately barraged with compliments and kind words about how
stunning the carving was.
One of her teachers actually brought the melon into her classroom to
show Sarah’s classmates what she had done! Even at the wedding, we
were greeted with continued and repeated “oohs & ahhhs” of that
watermelon, and how amazed everyone was that an 8th grader could be so
You helped create a wonderful memory for both our daughter and us,
that we will always have – and a skill for her & I that we are excited
to continue developing!”
Unfortunately, we don’t have a photo of Sarah’s carving. But, it is fun to see children having success with fruit and vegetable carving.
Thanks to Angelo and Sarah and their parents for sharing their remarkable edible vegetable bouquets and watermelon roses carving stories.
