Autumn Vegetable Bouquets

leekandcarrotflower-bouquetSusan Bettridge, a customer/student of mine from New South Wales, Australia, kindly sent over several photos of her amazing autumn vegetable bouquets. Many of the techniques that she used to create these fall vegetable bouquets can be learned in the 101 Fruit and Vegetable Carving Course.

Sue joined my 101 Course and my Amazing  Carving with Jimmy Zhang lessons just 3 months before she sent me her lovely photos that included some autumn vegetable bouquets that I will show you here in this blog post. She added her own twist by dying some of her vegetable flowers.

Perhaps you will get some ideas here for your own autumn vegetable bouquets.

Here’s what Sue told us in an email,

Hi Nita, I placed an order on the 30th of April this year for my first purchase of the 11 week course and my Kom Kom knife set. Well, here we are in July the 22, 2013, 3 months later, these are my creations. I also purchased the DVD with Jimmy Zhang. I thank you for all that you and Jimmy has taught in these easy to follow demonstrations. I have a brain on overload when I go into a produce shop. I look at produce in another light….I have included some of my photos for your viewing. I enjoy and love watching, simple in produce, produce come to life, under the aid of carving tools, mixed with unlimited imagination, something so beautiful. I do get the WOW’s and OMG!!!, and more with the displays. I give away most to very grateful people. And lastly, thank you for making mistakes, I learn from them….I do also, I will, and always will, learn from mine also. Kindness and Blessings to you, Sue

These carrot flowers in the autumn vegetable bouquets were made using the carrot curler that you can get in my online shop.

The same type of flowers using the carrot curler were made with beets and parsnips.
