Baby Shower #1

Both of my pregnant friends had their babies over Labor Day weekend. One girl, one boy. Everyone is doing well and I can't wait to see both babies. We had a baby shower together in August - lots of good food and fun. I have always wanted to make a baby carriage out of a watermelon and this was the perfect occasion. I used a full sized melon and filled it with melon balls, blueberries, strawberries and grapes. I used a white nectarine for the baby head and drew on a face with a sharpie and then wrapped it in a lettuce leaf blanket. It was pretty easy to carve and super fun to make!
