Fun Fruit Flower Garden

Fruit Flower Garden

I wanted to put together a fruit share platter for a diverse group on a playdate. Flowers are fun, simple and quick to put together so I created my summery “garden” to share (in the middle of winter!!).

Recipe

– Orange – for sun and rays (could substitute any orange/yellow fruit)

– Kiwi for grass (could substitute any green fruit)

– Pear for stalks (apple or melon would work)

– Pear slices for flowers (I used the white flesh) apple or melon would be good too

– Plum – I used the colour to cut the flower centres and the butterfly bodies/antenna

– Mandarin – I used the segments for the butterfly body

Method

1. Cut kiwi segments for grass.

2. Slice the pear lengthways to create stems.

3. Then I used a little cookie cutter to make the flower shapes.

4. I used a dark skinned plum for contrasting colour and cut little squares for the centre of the flowers.

5. Then to give a summery feel a circle cut from an orange.

6. And no sun would be complete without rays.

7. Then we needed some butterflies to complete the picture. I used mandarin segments.

And cut strips from the plum to make bodies and antennae.

8. A great share plate which the kids loved. The leftover fruit from creating I served in small bowls and there were no complaints!!
