Weeeee’rrrrreee back with more baby excitement! No, no, not our own baby… we’re celebrating with our cousins as they welcome their first child into the family. If you were with us on Monday, you saw a bit of our baby shower decorations and today I’m back to share more of the party details…
How cute, huh?! I will be up front and honest in that I did help with this project, but for the most part, I watched and snapped pictures because this was all my mom’s brilliant doing. 🙂 But here’s the quick how-to for anyone interested in this oh-so-cute crowd pleaser.
Step 1: Cut a quarter of the watermelon out.
Step 2: Draw and cut a design for the top “rim” of the carriage.
Step 3: Use the remaining quarter of the rind to draw and cut out the carriage handle.
Step 4: Remove watermelon from inside.
Step 5: Fill the carriage with fruit salad.
Step 6: Cut an orange in half and use a full half for the baby face (prop it up in the back of the carriage.
Step 7: Slice the remaining half of the orange and use toothpicks to attach four slices to the sides of the melon for wheels.
Step 8: Use blueberries, strawberries, and grapes (sliced in half) for eyes, nose, mouth, and accents on the wheels.
Step 9: Attach the carriage handle to the front using toothpicks.
Step 10: Take tons of cute pictures and enjoy!
That’s all for today, folks!
