May’s Mouth-Friendly Recipe 2012

Nothing says Happy Mother’s Day like a fresh bouquet, and this one is as tasty as it is beautiful. Whether you’re making this arrangement for a special mom or just for fun, it’s sure to be a springtime hit. Fruit Bouquet Ingredients:

  • One head of lettuce
  • One seedless watermelon
  • One cantaloupe
  • One honeydew melon
  • One pineapple
  • One bag red seedless grapes
  • One 1-lb carton of strawberries
  • One 6 floral foam ball
  • Bamboo skewers
  • Toothpicks

Directions: Cover the floral foam in lettuce leaves, then poke your desired number of skewers through the lettuce and into the foam. The more skewers you use, the fuller your arrangement will be. Cut the melon and pineapple into 1″ thick slices, then use cookie cutters to cut flower or heart shapes from the slices and slide them onto the skewers. Make flower centers by using a melon baller or smaller cookie cutters. Attach your centers to the flowers using toothpicks. Slide strawberries and grapes onto shorter skewers to fill out your fruit bouquet. Refrigerate your handiwork until you’re ready to eat it. Print this recipe Back to articles
