First Carved Vegetable Bouquet by New Student

What kind of reaction might you get when you learn to carve your first carved vegetable bouquet? Take a look at one new student’s experience.

As the producer of vegetable and fruit carving instructional videos, it’s always fun for me to hear about the experiences that new carvers have. Customer/student Ray Feig recently joined our Vegetable and Fruit Carving 101 Course for Beginners and our Hearts and Roses lessons. A few weeks later, I received the following email and photos from Ray.

Dear Nita,

Using the skills I learned in the Hearts and Roses DVD and the 101 Course, I made my first bouquet. I have attached pictures of it for you to see.

I put the bouquet out at a small dinner party we had, and it got lots of Oohs and Aahs. I was very proud, but what happened next really blew me away:

One woman asked me whether I could make bouquets for her party and she asked for my card. I said I don’t have any business cards because I am not in business, I am just carving for fun.

Then another two women asked for my card, whether I worked for a caterer (I don’t) and how much I would charge for more bouquets and vegetable flowers for their upcoming events!

I didn’t want to tell them that it was my first attempt and that I found your video instructions so good and clear that it made carving pretty easy!

Anyways, I thought I would tell you this story, and thank you for your great video instructions.

Ray’s first carved vegetable bouquet contains a variety of vegetable flowers and leaves using carving techniques taught in several lessons of the 101 Course for Beginners. The assembly of the bouquet is also taught in the 101 Course.

Raymond carved and colored the edges of his pretty turnip rose using the techniques taught in the Hearts and Roses video lessons.


Ray used the carving techniques taught in our Hearts and Roses lessons for beet and turnip roses and then applied the same techniques to make carrot roses.

Ray Feig did a beautiful job with his first vegetable bouquet, didn’t he. A big thanks goes out to Ray for sharing his photos and his experience with displaying his first carved vegetable bouquet. Thanks Ray. Keep up the good work…I mean play. ; )
