Fruit Bouquet

Pin It Now!

Mmmm one of the best things about summer is the wonderful fruit. I went to a party this weekend so I copied this idea from someone's blog...sorry I don't remember where I saw it??? I put some florist foam in a soup tureen and then covered it with some swiss chard to give it a nice green base. I cut flower shapes out of the watermelon with cookie cutters and used cantaloupe balls for the center. I would have liked to spend more time getting a nice rounded shape to this fruit bouquet but I was running really late so I really threw this thing together quickly.

Mmmmmm - I love fresh fruit. That looks so beautiful too. When I was a child my Mother used to make fruit baskets out of watermelons.
