Baby carriage (with fruit)

So cute!

If you are planning a special shower for someone who is expecting, here's a cute twist on a fruit basket or fruit tray to feed your guests. It is an adorable way to feed people and impress them at the same time!

Thanks to Linda P for this awesome idea!

You will need:

1 medium watermelon

1 cantaloupe

Container of blackberries

3 kiwis

1 bag of green and purple grapes, halved

Container of strawberries


Baby's pacifier

You can choose any fruit you want, but this is what worked for us.

First, carve the basket out of the watermelon.

Peel the cantaloupe and place half into basket.

Take remaining watermelon and cantaloupe and use a melon-baller to make bite-size bites.

Use grapes for the eyes, attaching with toothpicks, and cantaloupe as a nose and ears. Attach pacifier.

Lastly, put the rest of the cut up fruit in the basket or surrounding it on a platter.

You can also serve with fruit dip, recipe found here.
