Baby Shower Fruit Salad

I recently hosted at baby shower at my home.   I saw this idea on Pinterest that thought I'd give it a try. 

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.
