Take a look at how customer and professional caterer Deborah Cheeseman took the watermelon poinsettia idea and raised it to a new level of creativity. I received her photos a few days before Christmas.
My love gift for an aunt who passed away this holiday.
Her family asked for something special.
– Deborah Cheeseman
Deborah’s Christmas Poinsettia tree was made to honor the passing of a beloved Aunt in rural area outside Mobile Alabama. Deborah started with a large platter for the base and stacked 4 more pedestal platters of descending sizes on top. She put small styrofoam wreaths on each level to skewer the lettuce and watermelon poinsettias into for stability! The pedestal plates with the melon poinsettias formed the shape of a Christmas tree. She filled the bottom platter with fruit. What a great idea!
When I asked about the stability, Deborah said that “The table was bumped several times and no problems! ”
A few days before Christmas, I also a couple of other photos from students of my lessons.
Hello… Here is what I made with the help of your video! Thank you so much !
I simply did it as a practice, as I had just purchased the poinsettia class. People really loved it, specially my 5 year old. 🙂
You can learn how to carve graphic patterns like Danielle’s Santa in our video lessons, Carving Letters and Words. You can learn how to carve the Chirstmas poinsettias in our video lessons, Poinsettia Watermleon Carving.
The following is from a new student of my free radish bouquet lesson.
Hello Nita Gill,
I am a retiree who was fortunate to have found your site.
After I received your free video on radish carving, I tried it
out at a recent get-together.
I didn’t have a U tool or a yellow squash so I used a regular
paring knife and I used baby carrot slices for flower centers.
I used a large piece of Lo Bok for the base as I didn’t have a potato.
I also didn’t have any greens to go on the base.
My wife was impressed and I got some Wows from
our guests. Thanks. I look forward to more carving.
I attach a picture of my first effort – a vegetable tray with
radish bouquet centerpiece.
I hope that you liked seeing these pretty Christmas poinsettia carvings as well as the radish bouquet. Put these ideas to use and you are sure to hear ooohs and aaahhhs.
