Happy New Year!

Here are some fun ideas for making fruit carvings to celebrate a Happy New Year. Some of these are from past years but all the ideas can be used for any year’s New Year celebration.

The gorgeous watermelon tower celebrating the new year in 2017 was created by customer Yolada Diaz who is now a professional carver.

Simple New Year’s Idea

Sometimes it takes us a while to get around to posting photos that student /customers send in. Because so many photos are sent to us, it’s hard to keep up. And sometimes photos are sent to us much later than when the carvings are made. Marguerita DeLaRosa sent this next photo to us in July of 2016.

Student/customer Marguerita DeLaRosa shows a simple and pretty way to dress up a fruit tray for a New Year’s celebration.

It’s easy to cut the star shapes with cookie cutters. You can use jicama, turnip or diakon for the stars. If you want, you can even use Styrofoam. Just put grapes on skewers, top with your stars and add to your fruit tray. Simple. Or, you could top your skewers with decorated strawberries like these pretty strawberries that customer Sonia Etri made.
