Serve fruit in a more exciting, visually appealing way by making a fruit bouquet. Bouquets of vegetables can be equally attractive and tasty, too. Either way, they can be used as lovely centerpieces.

A Do It Yourself Fruit Bouquet

a fruit bouquet and a vegetable bouquetAlthough you can purchase ready made fruit bouquets, it’s fun to make them yourself. When you make your own fruit bouquet, not only can you save a bunch of money, but you can select the type of fruits used and make sure that they are fresh and ripe so that your bouquet is the sweetest and tastiest it can be. No overripe or sour fruits. And, best of all, the recipient of your bouquet will feel honored that you took the time to create a beautiful fruit flower bouquet for them.

Fruit bouquets are really quite easy to make yourself. And, you are bound to hear exclamations of delight when you bring them to parties or potlucks.

Sometimes a fresh fruit bouquet will have a variety of fruits and some of those fruits can dipped in chocolate or other candy coating. Watch the video below to see how easy it is to make chocolate covered strawberries that will look great.

For more variety, fruit bouquets can be assembled with dried fruits, candy covered dried fruits and even vegetables. Vegetable bouquets can be an impressive substitute for an ordinary platter of dipping veggies.

Thank you so much for the video. I made the bouquet for a friends baby shower and everyone loved it. They thought it was professionally made or store bought. Thank you for the lesson.

Sharron Nickerson made this radish bouquet for a backyard wedding after watching Nita's free lesson.

“Hi Nita,

My fruit and veggie appetizers display turned out awesome. No one could believe it was my first one. I have done smaller bouquets but nothing on this scale. The watermelon and Radish bouquets were the favorites. It was a big hit at the wedding in my back yard. I did get the tools on Friday.

Thanks Sharron”

 

Add Chocolate Covered Strawberries to Your Fruit Bouquet.
