A Fruit Filled 4th of July

Hi, I am Cassie from the marriage and family blog, True Agape. I am excited to be here guest posting while Anni enjoys her time in Germany! With the 4th of July just around the corner I wanted to share a little treat that can make a big splash at your get together!




For a little background: Ryan, my husband, and I are both endurance athletes, with me on a break as I am 37 weeks pregnant! But either way we try to eat pretty healthy and as little of processed stuff as possible. With that fruits and veggies are a big part of our diet. But let’s face it the fruit and veggie trays that I bring often get over looked at family functions for the other wonderful goodies that may not be nearly as healthy. Therefore, I sometimes try to make them a bit more intriguing. Today, I am going to share with you one way you can have a fruit filled 4th of July!


1. Cut watermelon in half. Then, into fourths.
2. Carefully slice watermelon into even flat pieces.
3. Take away sides. Cut up good watermelon pieces to serve in bowl.
4. Use cookie cutters to cut your letters and shapes.
5. Make extra pieces in case some break!
6. Place fruit onto sticks.

Lastly arrange sticks in a way that looks pleasing to you.
I used a blue bucket from the Dollar Tree. I used folded washcloths on their sides in the bottom of the bucket to be able to put the sticks in between the layers of fabric. Then, I added white tissue paper to cover the cloth. You could however use a cylinder vase and use color stones.

Confession: I have attempted several Pinterest food ideas with some of them not so great! This one however, was pretty simple to do once I made it past slicing the watermelon. So do not fret! I know you can do it too!

Thank you so much for allowing me to share this idea on how to have a fruit filled 4th of July! Please come on over to True Agape and see what we are all about!

Until Next Time- Truly Love,
Cassie

  2. What a super cute idea! I like it - but agree that watermelon as a whole can be intimidating!! I think I could do it, though ... ;)
