One of my student /customers Sharron Nickerson recently created a wedding fruit display for a wedding that she hosted at her home. It was her first large fruit carving display.
Here is what Sharon wrote to me when she sent her photo to me.
My fruit and veggie appetizers display turned out awesome. No one could believe it was my first one. I have done smaller fruit bouquets but nothing on this scale. I found some other Ideas from off the Internet but the watermelon and Radish bouquets were the favorite. It was a big hit at the wedding in my back yard. I did get the tools on Friday.
I agree with Sharron, it did turn out awesome. Take a look at her photos.
I love to see how people take ideas that I present in my blog and lessons and adapt them in different ways. Here, Sharron took the watermelon bowl idea that I showed for the 4th of July and made it her own by carving wedding bells into the sides of the bowl. She then artfully arranged some grapes cascading from the top and added wedding bell cut with cookie cutters as decorations.
Watermelon Bowl Idea adapted for a Wedding Fruit Display
Sharron also took advantage of the free lesson that I offer for making a radish flower bouquet and used it as part of her wedding fruit display.
Radish Bouquet from Free Lesson added the this Wedding Fruit Display.
Sharron displayed her fruits and veggies artfully on a large framed mirror. If you look in the front corners of her display you can see that she added some tomato roses. I show you how to make those in a free tomato roses video lesson on my blog.
Can you believe that this is Sharron’s first large fruit display with carvings. Beautiful, isn’t it?
If you are planning a wedding or event, and wanting to make a pretty wedding fruit display, I hope that first time carver Sharron Nickerson’s wedding fruit display gives you some ideas and inspiration of you own.
