Fruit Baby Carriage

We had a baby shower at my house and I'd mentioned that I wanted to do something fun and festive with fruit. Turns out my friend had a picture of a cute shower idea.

So this is how it turned out! It was fun--my kids thought it was so cool. Kinda like pumpkin carving but with a watermelon.

I have some good friends that are awesome at decorating cakes. But I can't have that much sugar around or I will eat nonstop. So--fruit carving is a great alternative! Fills that need for creativity.
I love those fruit flowers on skewers too. I'd love to do those for Easter, Mother's Day or the Fourth of July.

I love this cute little buggy! How fun for a shower! I am going to have to remember this for the next baby shower I throw. That is a great idea about the fruit carving instead of cake decorating. It would be a great creative outlet. Thanks for taking the time to share.

How are Monet and Ellise? My kids never got sick.
