Weddings receptions are done in every theme imaginable. Watermelon and fruit carvings can add to the theme’s decorations. Today’s post features some wedding reception carvings that customer/student Cindy Rozich created to fit a Western theme.
The carved watermelons were for a western wedding reception at the Cross Eyed Moose Event Center in Homeworth, OH. I enlarged the font from their invitation to make the pattern for Kali & Ross’s names. The heart with their initials carved in it was on a tree on the invitation, so I included it on both carvings. I chose a western font for their last name which fit perfectly in the cowboy hat shape. I hope you enjoy!

I do enjoy, Cindy. Thanks for sharing your photos with us.
Cindy also did the fruit and vegetable trays.
The reception for 200 was held on 2 floors. The pictures below show the appetizer table on the bottom level. The pictures with the watermelon carvings were on the appetizer table on the upper level. I did all the fruit and vegetable trays. The cookies were ordered from a local bakery and the cheese was from my families farm market. The 6 fruit trays weighed a total of 60 lbs. and the 4 vegetable trays weighed a total of 29-1/2 lbs. It was a lot of work, but it was fun!
The wedding was held on at the Cross Eyed Moose Event Center. It was originally a church, which was turned into a lodge type event center. It is decorated with high end antiques and is absolutely beautiful, just stunning!
Cindy did a beautiful job of making wedding reception carvings to fit the western theme of this wedding, didn’t she? Perhaps these photos will give you some ideas and inspiration for carving custom melons for your next special event.
