Fruit bouquets are truly inventive and useful dishes. From hospital visits to party buffets, fruit arrangements are pleasant additions, and because they are much more useful than a bouquet of flowers, are sure to always be appreciated.
Select the fruit for the basket. If choosing a particular theme for the basket, select fruits that will match the desired colors. For example, if making a Christmas bouquet, consider choosing red and green apples.
Cut the fruit into slices roughly a quarter-inch thick and use the cookie cutters to create various shapes.
Place fruits onto the skewers. Be sure to use a distinguished pattern to add to the overall effect of the basket.
Place the florist foam inside the basket. If the basket is shallow, consider centralizing the heavier fruit to ensure the basket does not tip over.
Place the skewers with fruit on top into the florist foam and arrange them into a flower-like bouquet. Add the cookie-cutter fruit along the outside edges of the basket to better conceal the florist's foam.
