But it did look pretty cute so I talked myself into giving it a shot.
This was my end result: It's just a little carriage because I couldn't find a big watermelon.
I would like to thank:
1. Bertie for giving me the idea and believing I could do it.
2. Channing for being my cheerleader along the way. She kept saying, "Good job mom! It's looking like the picture."
3. Chloe for taking a wonderful nap. Sometimes it's hard having, not 2, but 4 extra helping hands.
4. And last of all, HEB grocery store for having a decent price on out of season fruit. I couldn't have done it without them.
The girls loved the carriage and couldn't wait until the next morning because I promised them any leftovers. It's funny how in their eyes the ordinary fruit turned into something extraordinary when put inside a watermelon baby carriage.
So if you ever need a cute fruit dish idea for a baby shower, here are the instructions.
