- How To Make It
- Use the vegetable peeler to remove the skin from the kiwi fruit, but leave the rind on the watermelon and the pineapple.
- Slice off one rounded end of the watermelon so that you have a chunk about 3 inches thick and set it, cut side up, in a bowl.
- Slice the rest of the melon, the fresh pineapple, and the kiwi into rings about 3/8- to 1/2-inch thick.
- Use the cookie cutter to cut out flowers from the center of each melon and pineapple slice. Then, use the melon baller to carve out a small hole in the center of each flower.
- If the flowers are juicy, blot them with paper towels. Then, set them on a flat surface and insert a grape or a raspberry into each center hole. Or, you can use a piece of kiwi fruit scooped from one of the slices with the melon baller.
- With each flower, thread a wooden kitchen skewer up through one of the lower petals, then through the center fruit, and finally through the opposite petal.
- “Plant” the flowers in the bowl by pushing the bottom of each skewer into the chunk of watermelon.
- Finally, thread the kiwi slices onto skewers and add them to the bouquet.
