This turned out beautiful! My watermelon was a little too ripe when making this recipe, so I didn't bother to put it on the skewers. Except that, I followed the recipe exactly. Since it's September, I decorated the house a bit and put this masterpiece in the center of our dining table for a small party. It looked fantastic! Thanks for the genius idea!
We had fun - turned it into a little head with skewer hair (cut grape with raisin pupil, and strawberry mouth). Realized as I came to review it that we forgot the blueberries - or maybe someone ate them. Thanks magpie! Made for ZWT8 Family Picks.
The perfect addition to my mom's surprise birthday party! I used half skewers because of the amount of party guests. Simply stunning!
Delicious and raw yes! I changed the cantaloupe to honeydew out of preference. When I took out my pineapple it was not ok so I omitted that. In addition I added fresh blackberries and opted out of using the fresh mint though I had some. I sprinkled a little orange blossom water on the skewers before serving which I love. I had a half watermelon to use for stabbing them into but since it was just for DD (toddler) and I we made an amount just for us and didn't bother with that but it would be cool for a party, especially with a dip to go along. DD (toddler) had a lot of fun putting these together with me. Thanks Magpie Diner for a healthy breakfast I would make again for party finger food. Made for Veggie Swap 23.
This was an awesome idea! I made it to take to a get together with some friends and as soon as I took one of the bags off the top their little 4 year old was just ectastic with excitment! This went over really, really well with young kids as well as grown ups. I didn't do grapes or blueberries or other similar fruits as the cost was very high. I did splurge on the cantaloupe and bought a honeydew as well. Thanks for a great idea! This would be fun with veggies as well. Made for the May 2010 Aussie/NZ recipe swap. :)
Awesome! I made this for a baby shower last night and it was so stinkin' fancy! Love it! I made it as written, but without the grapes as I forgot them at home. . .bummer. The mint really made them look pretty and smelled great! Thanks for sharing.
