Wedding Carving Arrangements by Saada

Saada Al-Taie, a student of my Watermelon cake 1 & 2 , Carving Letters #1 and #2, Carving Melons: Smooth and Jagged Petals, and Amazing Carving with Jimmy Zhang lessons, shared some photos of her stunning fruit carvings and displays with me well over a year ago. These area wedding carving arrangements that she made not long after becoming a member of my lessons. At the time, she had recently started her own fruit carving business in her home country of Oman.

These photo may give you some ideas that you can put to use if you are planning to make some fruit carving arrangements for a wedding or other special occasion. In my next post, I’ll show you more of Saada’s more recent wedding carving arrangements that are even more beautiful.

The following photos show some of her first wedding carving arrangements.

I got a lot of wows and compliments from the customers. The comment I got from this customer was that my carvings were great surprise for her family and friends.” Saada

Saada’s trio of carving watermelons include a watermelon carved to look like a decorative urn. Her carrots add a pretty accent of color.

The peacock carving seen below is carved out of Japanese pumpkin (which is also known as Kabocha sqush) and adds a unique touch to this elegant carving display.

For those of you who are looking to make large wedding carving arrangements, notice how Saada arranges her carving to be at different heights.

A wedding display wouldn’t be complete with a congratulatory watermelon carving with the bride and groom’s names carved into the rind.

In this wedding display of carvings, Saada carved the Bride and Groom’s name into the center watermelon.

You can learn to carve create your own patterns and to carve letters in a watermelon with my Carving Words and Letters lesson.

All of the flowers in this carved wedding arrangement are carved. They are carved from carrots, beets, turnips and of course, watermelon. She did a beautiful job on this, didn’t she?

Saada uses lots of whole fruits in addition to her carvings to make a colorful display table.

These next watermelon carvings is what Saada created after watching my Carving Melon Flowers: Smooth and Jagged Petals lessons.

In addition to my DVD and online lessons, Saada has also learned techniques and found inspiration in my free lesson. To get your free radish bouquet lesson, sign in for the free lesson near the top right hand of this page.

I also learn free vegetable bouquet from you, which I take your idea and change to kiwi with grapes. It gave me big success being a new thing in town and surprised many people.”


Saada took the ideas in my free radish bouquet lesson and substituted kiwi and grapes to come up with these lovely fruit arrangements.


Here is how the same Kiwi bouquet idea looks with darker colored grapes.

Saada took the techniques taught in the Apple Bird lessons of my Hearts and Roses and used it to make a honeydew swan.

You can see even more beautiful wedding carvings made by Saada after her skills improved even more.

I hope these photos give you some ideas and inspiration for your own wedding carving arrangements. With my lessons, you can make carvings like these, too.
