A fruit salad.....not just any fruit salad but one themed specifically for a baby shower.
I used a watermelon as the bowl. The watermelon was cut in the shape of a cradle. The insides were scooped out with a melon baller. I cut of a piece of the bottom of the watermelon so that it would lie in place on the platter without moving around. Salad was made with fresh cantaloupe, red/green grapes, watermelon balls, pineapple and blackberries.
A little baby face was carved out of the cantaloupe. Eyes were made with a red grape cut in half and the nose and ears were also from the cantaloupe. I found a soother from the dollar store for added effect.
Around the baby cradle was an assortment of cut up fresh fruit.
