I made a bouquet for a going away party-it turned out great! Lots of compliments. We used: blueberries, blackberries, red & green grapes, pineapple, strawberries & oranges. I liked how a person could come, pick up a skewer & walk away. no need for plates or napkins. I think a lot more fruit was eaten because of the convenience. I had a few friends grab a few skewers before leaving & could be seen walking down the street eating their fruit. I'll be making this again & again! I used a little heart- shaped cookie cutter for the cutouts (didn't have a flower cutter).
Made this for a big bridal shower and it got rave reviews. A centerpiece and a dessert all in one.
I just had to give this recipe a try. I used a pineapple, cantaloupe, grapes, raspberries and strawberries. I wrapped the florists styrofoam in plastic wrap and placed it in a clear glass bowl. It was made for Mother's Day and everyone loved it. Thanks for this wonderful recipe.
thanks for the recipe/idea!!! I did it for a bridal shower over the weekend (I didn't get a chance to take a picture though :-() Everyone raved about the presentation and since it was about 100 degrees out, it sure was refreshing!!! I used a metal decorative bucket, and didn't use cantaloupe, but I added blackberries...I loved the effect (and taste!) of the chocolate dipped strawberries!!! My 6 year old dipped them all and was so excited to be able to help!!! Thanks again for a new shower/party staple!!!
Super cute idea! I didn't use a plant pot either but 2 inexpensive decorative metal garden buckets -- next time I will weight down the bottom as suggested below though, so the fruit doesn't tip over :) Thanks for such a cool idea!!
Wonderful! As suggested, I made it with Chocolate Fountain and served at my sister's bridal shower. I assembled the skewers the night before and kept them in a 9x13" dish overnight. Then, during the party, I "planted" them while the bride was unwrapping gifts. I used a basket instead of a plant pot to go with my decor, but I had to weight the basket bottom to keep it from tipping over- I'm sure the suggested plant pot works better. Thanks for posting!!
