Homemade Fruit Flower Bouquet

Ordering a fruit a bouquet can be very costly.  You can easily make one at home for less than half the price as what the professionals make.

What Tools You Will Need:

–   Vegetable peeler

–   Melon baller

–  Flower shaped cookie cutter

–   Thin wooden skewers (like you would use for kabobs)

–   Pot or basket

–   Play Dough or clay (will explain later)



What Ingredients You Will Need: 

–   Pineapple

–   Seedless watermelon

–   Honeydew Melon

–   Cantaloupe

–   Grapes and/or raspberries

–   Strawberries

–   Chocolate

–   Parsley



What You Will Need to do:

1.   Use the vegetable peeler to remove the skin of the honeydew and cantaloupe.

2.   Slice off skin and round off pineapple and watermelon.  Then slice into rough 1/2-i nch thick ring.

3.   Take the cookie cutter, cut our flowers from the middle of the watermelon and pineapple rings.  With the remaining pieces of watermelon and pineapple, use the baller and carve out holes for the centres of the flowers.

4.   With a skewer, thread a flower petal and place piece of fruit ball in centre.  Note it really looks attractive when you use opposite fruit for the centres and petals.

5.   Warm chocolate like a fondue on a double boiler.  Stick skewer into strawberries and then dip into chocolate.

6.   Take play dough or clay and insert in the pot or basket you are going to use for the bouquets.

7.   Insert skewers with fruit into the dough/clay.

8.   Once all your fruit skewers are placed, place some twigs of parsley in-between the skewers.  This fills in the bouquet, hides the skewers and makes it look more like a flower bo
