I went to a mehndi ceremony for a close friend a few days ago, and thought these were fabulous – fruit trays with carved fruit which were cleverly and intricately made into pretty flowers, animals and heart shapes. I did think the flowers made of peppers were a bit different, I’ve seen a lot of fruit carved into flowers, swans and cute designs before, but I really liked these because of how different they looked – the swan in a watermelon cage is a fab idea!
And what’s great about it is that it’s all home-made – the different fruit trays were all made by women who brought them to the ceremony. Now that’s something to try my hand at, apple-penguins, anyone? Maybe not
