Fruit Arrangement



This is the fruit arrangement I brought to our friend's house for the 4th of July. I wanted t bring something healthy that they kids would enjoy, and I'm happy to report it was a hit. Unfortunately the pineapple I had at home had gone bad, so I wasn't able to use it. The good news is I had enough other fruits to make it yummy. Next time I will cut the skewers so that it has a more tapered look. Since it was going to be top-heavy I decided to put a cabbage in the bucket (from the dollar store), and it worked like a charm. It was easy to stick the skewers in the cabbage and I didn't have to worry about it tipping over. I think my favorite part were the grapes covering the bottom!!! I plan on making a lot more of these this summer, please let me know if you would like to see a detailed tutorial.
