How to Make a Veggie Arrangement (in Pictures)

Last Christmas my mom gave me a fun carrot peeler.  She learned how to make veggie bouquets at Relief Society, then became veggie connoisseur to me and the granddaughters during our family Christmas party.  She gave us a fun tutorial, then slipped in the secret peeler into our Christmas stash.


I think these pictures are quite self-explanatory.  
The only tips I could give would be this:
  • Buy this carrot curler
  • Use the right-half of your brain
If I hadn't been in such a hurry, I would have tried to perfect the radish roses a little better.  I also think having mini cookie cutouts to make cleaner shapes with the cucumber would have been nice.

The veggies I used:
  • Big real carrots for peeler
  • Romaine
  • Long wooden Kabob Sticks
  • Green Onions to slide over sticks to make flower stems
  • Celery to make a support for the flowers
  • Olives
  • Radishes
  • Cucumber
  • Green Pepper to hold Ranch Dipping Sauce
  • baby carrots for dipping
  • cherry tomatoes
Picture tutorial begins now:






















Too pretty to eat?  I think not!
