Looking for some fun baby shower ideas?

What could be cuter than this baby in a fruit bassinet! This is a creative way to serve a fruit salad and it makes a great centerpiece too!  This will also go with any baby shower theme you choose.

Here are some tips for carving this spectacular centerpiece for a baby shower:

  •  Start with a watermelon that is at room temperature.  It will be much easier for you to carve a melon that is not “sweating”.
  • Cut a thin slice from the bottom of the watermelon to provide a stable base.
  • Draw the outline for the bassinet on the water melon, using the picture above as a guide.
  • Use a sharp knife to cut out the design on the watermelon.  Cut all the way through the rind.
  • Remove the sections of the rind and hollow out the bassinet.
  • Use a melon-baller  tool to cut watermelon balls for the fruit salad.
  • Peel a cantaloupe to make the baby’s head.
  • Fill the baby bassinet with fruit salad and enjoy!
