Tennis Theme Graduation Party Decorations

This first graduation party fruit display is by Jim Tanner. I just love how creative it is!

Student /customer Jim Tanner put together this fun and creative display to honor a tennis playing graduate.

Hi Nita, thought you might like to see my latest creation for local graduate and tennis star. I made the racket from watermelon rind, Daikon radish for handle, wrapped with eggplant. This was my first honeydew flower thanks to your instructional video. I learned a lot.

The only scary incident was when I cut the end off the large watermelon after I finished the carving. It cracked wide open halfway down the back side. Thankfully, duct tape and some flowers covered my mistake. Clients were pleased and it was the talking piece of the reception.

Isn’t the whole display clever and original? The “tennis balls were lemons that he scored to look like tennis balls. He did a great job on his first honeydew flower melon. And, I’ve got to give kudos for finding a way to camouflage his cracked melon. It happens.

Cindy created this lovely fruit tower to celebrate the graduation of her niece.

Hi Nita!
Thought you might enjoy the carvings I did for my niece’s graduation party yesterday. My sculpture was the talk of the party, with approx. 300 guests! People thought the zucchini roses were real roses. Hope you enjoy my pictures!!

Cindy’s pineapple palm tree was another of the graduation party decorations.

The Palm tree came out great. I think my parrot could have been shaped a little better. It was a great night and everyone raved over the carvings and the fruit!!! It was fun!

It did turn out great, Cindy.
