I love vegetable and fruit carving for Spring.
Probably because Spring is my favorite time of the year. It comes with lovely spring flowers blooming everywhere, bright happy colors, days that are warm and sunny, butterflies, birds nesting, and new life everywhere. Even if spring is not yet warm and sunny in your part of the world, you can brighten up your table with fresh spring vegetable and fruit carvings. Here are a few spring vegetable and fruit carving ideas.
Vegetable and fruit carving – flowers, butterflies and bunnies are sure to delight your guests.
The fruit bouquets and melon bunny fruit salad are as tasty as they are charming and beautiful. And they are simple to do once you know how and have the right tools.
Some students of mine made the melon bunny last spring and here is what a couple of them had to say,
“I made the bunny baskets, very simple, and took them to two events on Easter weekend and they were the hit of the parties!”
– Garnita Kelly, Wimberley, Texas
“I just want you to know that I am making the bunny basket and I LOVE IT! It’s INSTANT GRATIFICATION.”
– Michelle Smith – Ventura, CA
Afterward, Michelle told me that she had brought it to an Easter potluck at her church and lots of people were charmed by it. They said, “You made that?” “How did you do it”. It’s adorable.” and more. When she was getting ready to leave, one of her friends rushed up to her and asked if she could buy the empty bunny. She told Michelle that she was going to two more Easter parties that day and wanted to refill the bunny with fruit salad. Generously, Michelle simply gave it to her.
Michelle isn’t the only one who’s bunny basket got used more than once. Another student told me that she made two honeydew bunnies. One to use the night before Easter and one to use on Easter and refill for a second party that same day. She also got lots of ooooos and aaaaahs and people couldn’t believe that she made it.
As simple as it is, people really enjoy this bunny fruit bowl.
These vegetable and fruit carving ideas are perfect for Easter parties or for any spring celebrations.
Plan a springtime Sunday brunch and delight your friends with vegetable and fruit carving lilies, butterflies, bunnies and edible fruit bouquets. They will be charmed.

I’m not sure I understand your question. I don’t speak Spanish and when I put your words into Google translate I don’t understand
“how I can remove the fruit bobitos especially with the melon and pi, to always show up?”
I’m sorry but I don’t know what bobitos or pi is.
To answer how to keep the fruit fresh and not wilted,
fruit and veggies will stay fresher longer when kept moist and refrigerated.
Keep carved carrots and melons wrapped in damp paper towels, seal in plastic and refrigerate.
Keep beets in water with a bit of red dye and store in the refrigerator till ready to use. Assemble just before serving or displaying.
Spritz your carvings with cold water from a spray bottle from time to time to keep them looking fresh. You’ll notice that grocery stores do this all the time to keep their produce looking fresh.
I teach all of this and much more in my video lessons.
Here is the Spanish translation by Google Translate
Yo no estoy seguro de entender su pregunta. Yo no hablo español y cuando me ponga sus palabras en Google Translate que no entiendo
“¿Cómo puedo eliminar los bobitos de frutas, especialmente con el melón y pi, para mostrar siempre?”
Lo siento, pero no sé lo que es bobitos o pi.
Para responder a cómo mantener la fruta fresca y no marchitas,
frutas y verduras se mantendrá fresco por más tiempo si se mantiene húmedo y refrigerado.
Mantenga las zanahorias y melones tallados envueltos en toallas de papel húmedas, sellar en plástico y refrigerar.
Mantenga la remolacha en agua con un poco de colorante rojo y guardar en la regrigerator hasta que esté listo para su uso. Ensamble justo antes de servir o mostrar.
Spritz sus esculturas con agua fría de una botella de spray de vez en cuando para mantener su aspecto fresco. Se dará cuenta de que los supermercados hacen esto todo el tiempo para mantener emabrgo producen una apariencia fresca.
Enseño a todo esto y mucho más en mis clases de vídeo.
