Part 2 of my sister’s baby shower includes an awesome fruit baby laying in a watermelon carriage. My friend designed this by first cutting out the watermelon to resemble a carriage. We then cut and peeled a cantaloupe in which she cut in half. Half of it upside down became the baby’s head, while the other half became pieces of his blanket, ears and nose. Add a piece of lettuce for hair, some grapes for eyes and an actual baby pacifier and you have an awesome baby head.
For the blanket, she used sliced strawberries, watermelon (from the left over part she cut away), grapes and additional cantaloupe pieces. It turned out to be a great centerpiece for the table.
After the baby carriage, we still had left over fruit so…. fruit kabobs were added to the menu. We just added the fruit in nice patterns on a bamboo skewer then laid them on a nice serving tray.
For the vegetable section of the table, I purchased a vegetable tray already prepared at Sam’s Club and a bag of peppers. (I found it cheaper than purchasing everything separately- plus the tray traveled well.)
We cut the peppers into tiny bowls, laid them on the try and filled them with the contents of the vegetable tray. I was very happy with the way it turned out.
The water that you can see in the picture above and with the picture below was super easy to make.
My kids helped with this part by removing all the water bottle labels and taping cute, decorative both small and large) ribbon in its place.
I will be adding more Shower Pics and Ideas in the next couple of days. If you would like to see more ideas from this shower, they can be found in the menu at the top under birthday parties, boy baby shower. Or just click here to get there!
