Isn’t that canteloupe baby adorable?

That baby is sleeping in a watermelon basket!

To make this adorable baby shower watermelon cantaloupe fruit salad, you will need a good knife for cutting fruit and a melon ball maker tool.

This fruit salad is made with watermelon, canteloupe, blueberries, strawberries, grapes, and kiwi, but of course you are free to choose whatever fruits you like best. We didn’t include bananas in this fruit bowl because we made it the morning of the party and we didn’t want the bananas to turn brown before the guests arrived.

The first thing you need to do is select a large watermelon and cut out 1/4 of it from the top. You’ll then need to slice the watermelon carefully to leave the rind of the watermelon in place while being able to cut out the fruit to include in the fruit salad itself. Make sure you choose a watermelon that is large enough to hold all of the fruit!

You will need 3 cantaloupes for this recipe: one for the head, one to cut up to go into the fruit salad, and one to slice for around the watermelon on the serving tray. One cantaloupe you will only peel and leave it intact so it keeps its round shape to make the baby’s head.

To make the ears and nose for the baby, you’ll want to use the melon baller to make three balls. Attach them with toothpicks to the side and front to make the ears and nose.

To insert the pacifier, simply cut out a small hole that’s big enough for the pacifier to fit.

The next step is to cut up the fruit for the fruit salad and mix it all together. When all of the fruit is mixed together, you place it in the watermelon and then place the baby cantaloupe head on top. It’s so cute and adorable!
