Watermelon And Cantaloupe Baby


Isn't this just the cutest?
A friend made this delightful fruit presentation for my daughter's baby shower. 
A cantaloupe baby in a watermelon stroller.




All you need is:
  watermelon (stroller)
 cantaloupe (baby)
 orange (wheels)
blueberries (eyes)
other berries/fruit (red grapes and strawberries shown here)
a few toothpicks
a pacifier 
and a little bit of time to carve, chop, peel, and get creative.

    1. Isn't social media (facebook, blogs, pinterest, etc...) wonderful, if only for that reason? That we can share creative ideas with each other.

    1. Yes, you have a few years before you will need this. Got to get those girls through school/college first. :-)
