Babyshower Fruit Toys

>>  11/18/2011

More fruit toys and crafts for kids:
Pokemon Melon Cup
Lightning McQueen Watermelon Basket
Hello Kitty Watermelon
Fruit Princess Story (Cinderella)

I love to make fruit displays for babyshower parties. Cute animals and characters bring joy to children and adults. Some people hardly believe that the toys made of edible fruits. They think it is plastic. I ensure the display is completely made of fruit and vegetable :) I just wish the toys could have a longer life...

I enjoyed my work today. This display is my favorite one now. It took 2 hours and 30 minutes to carve and assemble them.

I found a pineapple to be a convinient base for fixing fruit crafts on it.
On the picture below you see a rabbit made of an orange. He is a character of a famous russian cartoon. His name is Krosh.

Fall Vegetable Displays at Citymall

>>  11/14/2011

At the last weekend I made fall vegetable carving centerpices to display at Citymall, a big trading and recreation center in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. 

Citymall organized some activities to celebrate a second anniversary for its openning. Last year we had a culinary show with carving displays and a quiz at the foodcourt. This year I made a vegetable flowers bouquet and made a free fruit carving demonstration. See the photos at Citymall website.

Quick & Easy fall centerpices demo

If you are time limited for a party decorating take a look at the Last Minute Pumpkin Buddies Project. 
This is a non-carving centerpiece made in 10 minutes. This is also a long-play centerpiece. I made the Yellow Pumpkin Guy in September and it is still in a perfect condition. 

Fall is a good time to collect some nice pumpkins to make a Pumpkin Snowman before the Christmas and New Year holidays pop up. Dress up your snowman according to a season. A scarf and a hat for winter  or sunglasses and a hawaiian shirt for summer :)
