An edible fruit arrangement is a beautiful and delicious fresh-fruit appetizer, perfect for a summer garden party. It also doubles as an attractive floral centerpiece. The arrangement gives you the chance to show off your artistic skills, expressing yourself by carefully preparing and positioning each decorative stem.
Find a clean, dry vase to use in your edible fruit arrangement. Heavy, wide vases are a good choice, since it will decrease the chance of your vase falling over. You can put some rocks or sand in the bottom to increase the weight.
Fill the vase to just below the rim with blocks of florist foam.
Cover the foam with a layer of parsley. This will provide some decorative greenery for your fruit flowers.
Slice a pineapple into flat slices, about an inch and a half in width.
Cut out the pineapple slices into flower shapes with a cookie cutter.
Make a center for each flower out of another fruit. One good way to do this is to scoop out a ball of cantaloupe with a melon baller, cut it in half and place one half on top of each pineapple flower. You could also use a grape, blackberry or other small fruit.
Skewer the pineapple cantaloupe flowers on bamboo skewers so that the flower sits at the top of the skewer.
Stick your flowers into the foam so that they are evenly balanced around the vase.
Make skewers with strawberries, grapes, cut up honeydew and any other fruits you want to include. Stick them in the foam. Your edible flower arrangement is now complete.
