Snow White’s beautiful fruit flower bouquet is fun to create and packed full of fresh fruit!
A great way to encourage your kids to eat healthily and the perfect centrepiece for a party.
- Vegetable peeler
- Seedless watermelon
- Fresh pineapple
- Flower-shaped cookie cutter
- Melon baller
- Grapes and/or raspberries
- Thin wooden kitchen skewers
Use the vegetable peeler to remove the skin from the kiwi fruit, but leave the rind on the watermelon and the pineapple.
Slice off one rounded end of the watermelon so that you have a chunk about 3 inches thick and place it, cut side up, in a bowl.
Slice the rest of the melon, the fresh pineapple, and the kiwi into rings about 3/8- to 1/2-inch thick.
Use the cookie cutter to cut out flowers from the centre of each melon and pineapple slice. Then, use the melon baller to carve out a small hole in the centre of each flower.
If the flowers are juicy, blot them with paper towels. Then, set them on a flat surface and insert a grape or a raspberry into each centre hole. Or, you can use a piece of kiwi fruit scooped from one of the slices with the melon baller.
With each flower, thread a wooden kitchen skewer up through one of the lower petals, then through the centre fruit, and finally through the opposite petal.
"Plant" the flowers in the bowl by pushing the bottom of each skewer into the chunk of watermelon.
Finally, thread the kiwi slices onto skewers and add them to the bouquet.
