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.
