Fruit Kabob Centerpiece

3 cantelopes
1 honeydew melon
3 pineapples
3 lbs. strawberries
1/2 lb. red grapes
1/2 lb. green grapes
60 bamboo skewers

Rinse grapes and strawberries and set on a paper towel to dry. Cut the honeydew melon, cantelopes, and 2 of the pineapples into pieces approximately 1" pieces. Choose a pattern to skewer the fruit and leave about 3" on each end of the skewer (the sharp end will enter a pineapple and the blunt end will be used to serve). A recommended pattern: strawberry, cantelope, green grape, pineapple, red grape, honeydew. Skewer the fruit and set aside until ready to serve. When ready to serve/display, slice off the bottom of the third pineapple so it sits securely on a sturdy platter. Then insert the skewers, spacing about 1" apart, moving around the bottom and working upward toward the top of the pineapple.


  1. Very pretty! I love it! I am going to have to try this.

  2. I'm making brunch for bunco nite and thought this would be the ideal centerpiece.
