Fruit Bouquet

A teacher that I work with got engaged last month. To congratulate her, we had a little party on our floor. I make this fuit bouquet. It was my first attempt, but I was happy with how it turned out.

Here is how I made it:

I started with a bunch of fruit. I used pineapple, cantaloupe, blueberries, grapes, strawberries, oranges, and apples. First thing I did was wash everything and start slicing.

To hold the bouquet I used floral foam and a ceramic pot.

I cut the foam and shoved in into the pot. It doesn't have to look nice cause I covered it up with fresh parsley.

Using wooden skewers, I started sticking fruit on.

Then I started sticking the skewers into the pot.

It needed some shorter ones too, so I cut some of the skewers down and continued.

I just kept adding fruit until it was full and looked good.
