Homemade edible bouquet
Yields 1 medium-sized bouquet
1 pineapple, peeled
1 pound fresh strawberries, stems on
1 pound fresh blueberries
1 pound fresh raspberries
Vase or decorative ceramic pot
Long wooden skewers
Fun shaped metal cookie cutters
Place Styrofoam inside your vase or pot, filling it about two-thirds full. Insert skewers (I used about 12.). Set aside.
Ensure the pineapple is completely skinned. Then, lay the pinapple down on its side. Using a sharp knife, cut the pineapple into about 1 to 2-inch slices. Then, using your cookie cutters, cut out different shapes. Insert the fruit through the middle onto the skewers. If you'd prefer, you can skewer grapes on first and top it off with the pineapple.
Then, skewer the rest of the fruit until all the skewers are filled. Display and enjoy!
