What better way to kick off the summer than by carving up some summer fruit into beautiful and edible arrangements of buzzing bees, caterpillars, ladybugs and sunflowers! We loved creating these easy DIY arrangements, perfect for a fondue party. Kids will have fun making them and they’re guaranteed to make your next garden party a success!

Sunflower watermelon carving

Material

  • Watermelon
  • Small knife
  • Vegetable peeler
  1.  


    Using a vegetable peeler, remove the outer layer of the watermelon.

  2.  


    Cut the outer layer of a circle into the top of the watermelon. Cut vertical and horizontal lines into the circle to create the centre of the flower.

  3.  


    Measure petals all around the centre of the flower and start cutting out the petals.

  4.  


    Add a second layer of petals in-between each first layer of petals, going down the side of the watermelon.

  5.  


    Serve along with the apple carving and kebabs. Enjoy!

Flower apple bowls

Material

  • Apples
  • Carving knife
  • Lemon juice
  1.  


    Slice apples one quarter from the top.

  2.  


    Cut 5 petal shapes into the top piece of each apple, cutting deep on an angle so that the pieces are easier to remove.

  3.  


    Using a measuring spoon or melon scoop, scoop out the centre of the apples, removing all seeds.

  4.  


    Make sure there is enough room to add fruit to your new apple cups! Fill them up as needed, and stick a toothpick in the top apple flower to attach it to the base fruit cup. Enjoy!
     

TIP
Lightly brush your apples with some lemon or lime juice to keep them from going brown.
