phoca thumb l watermelon pine flower  PP wedding - carving canon - thumbnail  phoca thumb l watermelon dahlia flower


I made this fruit and vegetable carving centrepiece display for my son's wedding reception a few weeks ago. Everyone seemed to enjoy looking at it and admired it.  And, as a result I was naturally very pleased to receive all the compliments.
Just in case you wonder, the swans were made from moolis/daikons (Chinese white radishes). The flowers and the leaves were from carrots, courgettes/zucchinies, turnips, kohlrabies, moolis, purple onions, pumpkin, radishes, green radishes and beetroots. The rest were carved, obviously, from watermelons.
