Did you know that there’s an interesting story behind the origin of Thai fruit carvings? The widely recognized accounted appearance was reportedly at the Loi Krathong Festival or the Floating Lantern Festival in the Empire of Thailand roughly 700 years ago. The Floating Lantern Festival is held during the full moon on the month of December to thank the spirit of water by floating little decorated rafts with lanterns right along the river.
These days, traditional Thai fruit carvings are often detailed watermelon table decors. Incoporated with these decors are delicate flowers with interesting animal designs. More often than not, the carvings are made out of vegetables and fruits that are all, of course, edible. Although almost any fruit can be used, watermelons remain to be the most popularly used for this purpose. Other things to be considered when creating Thai fruit carvings are that they should have unique colors (i.e. red, pink or yellow of the meat, the white of the rind and the green of the skin) and that they should symbolize the region where they’re from.
Now all of these details may sound a little too much for you but did you know that there’s a simple way for you to have your own version of these Thai fruit carvings and of the Floating Lantern Festival without so much ado?
