Easter is coming up quickly, so here are some pretty Easter ideas for food carvings.
Calla Lilies which bloom in the Spring have long been a symbol of purity and beauty, resurrection and rebirth. Commonly used for Easter celebrations and weddings the calla lily has a simple and beautiful elegance.
I carved the Calla Lilies that you see pictured here from vegetables. It’s really quite simple. When I make these at Easter, usually at least one person asks me if they are real flowers.
You can put them in bunches. Or, a single vegetable Calla Lily on a plate can make a very elegant place setting. They are edible, too. Well the carved vegetable version of the Calla Lily is edible. Don’t get confused and try to eat a real lily. They are reputed to be poisonous!
The carved calla lilies, melon bunny and fruit bouquets pictured just above and just below are all taught in my Vegetable and Fruit Carving 101 Course for Beginners. The lessons are also available as individual DVDs.
Fruit and Vegetable Fruit Bouquet Easter Ideas
These also make great Easter ideas. The vegetable bouquet pictured below is also taught in my Vegetable and Fruit Carving 101 Course for Beginners. For a fast pretty veggy bouquet, you can skip the carved vegetable flowers completely, although they certainly add a lovely special touch.
Watermelon Carving Easter Ideas
Here is another really pretty fruit carving idea for Easter. This is a watermelon fruit salad carved by Rose Flores. This was only her second attempt at carving watermelons. Isn’t her crucifix design lovely?

These next two photos were sent to me by Susan Belden who is also new to fruit and vegetable carving. She made a lovely basket of vegetables and included some carved vegetable lilies, and two really cute yellow squash birds. It make a great Easter basket. It’s so pretty, isn’t it?
Here is a closer look at new carver, Susan Belden’s charming squash birds with carrot beaks and clove eyes. They are easy to make, and really add some fun to her vegetable crudites basket. The “feathers” are created using our U-V cutters that you can get in our Online Shop.
Here is another variation of a vegetable bouquet created by Dushinka Suarez. She used more variations of carved flowers.
