Eat Your Heart Out & Love Every Minute

Making Fresh Fruit Bouquets is just as fun as eating them.

Yes, it’s easy to go online and order a premade fruit bouquet to give to that special someone. But taking the time to make your own conveys a totally different message. These DIY miniature fruit bouquets are an adorable way to show how much you really care.

Hosting a barbecue or a brunch? Dress up your buffet with these colorful bunches. They add a fun element of surprise, and each stick offers a bite-sized portion of fresh fruit. Who doesn’t love eating food on a stick?!

Keep scrolling to see how to make your own fruit bouquet, plus a couple of tips to make it easy for you.

A Few Quick Tips

    1. Sticks — Invest in wooden kabob skewers that you can wash and reuse. You’ll need to cut them in half for smaller bouquets.
    2. Raisins — To keep the fruit slices from sliding down the stick, use a raisin to hold everything in place! If you don’t have any raisins on hand, any type of dried fruit will work nicely.
    3. Orange — Depending on the size of your container, a sturdy fruit like an orange is the perfect solution for displaying the fruit flowers. For larger containers, use grapefruit. Smaller containers can use a lemon or clementine. The skin of the fruit is thin enough to puncture yet strong enough to hold the sticks in place. Want to make a huge fruit bouquet? Use a watermelon to hold the sticks!

The selection of fruits is endless. Pick your favorites or design a bouquet with select colors. Most importantly, have fun with it!

Great for Kids (and Adults) of All Ages

For parties, how awesome is it to create a snack that also functions as decoration? Often, when food is prepared in a creative way, kids are more inclined to try it. Check out the hashtag #bento on Instagram or google it to see all the crazy fun ways people design food. (I guarantee you’ll waste the next 20 minutes skimming through all the images.)
