Making breakfast or brunch for Mom? Individual serving fruit bouquet would be fun.

Are you looking for something more original? If your mom lives near you, you can present her with something a little different. How about making her a flower bouquet made of fruits or vegetables?

Something Small and Sweet for Mother’s Day

An individual serving of fruit arranged in a small bouquet would be fun, especially if you are serving her breakfast in bed. This square garden fruit bouquet is one of the many projects taught in my Vegetable and Fruit Carving 101 Course for Beginners.

What about a melon carved to look like a bunch of flowers? This watermelon that I carved to look like a bunch of curled petal roses is a pattern that will be taught in one of my upcoming video lessons. The release date is yet to be announced. This watermelon rose bouquet can serve as a decoration and then it can be sliced and served as dessert.

Looking for a Grander Mother’s Day Display?

Look at what a few fruit and vegetable carvers created for Mother’s Days past years.

Last year, after Mother’s Day, professional ice and fruit carver Greg Butauski sent me this photo of his Mother’s Day carved fruit display. It’s really pretty isn’t it?
