Melon Carving a Cute Baby Shower Idea

Are you looking for a fantastic baby shower idea for the buffet table or a fun baby shower activity? Look no further! A few years ago I went to a fantastic baby shower and saw this great idea where a baby carriage was made from a Water Melon.

Sylvia and I are testing out new ideas and when we saw two Melons on sale for 50p each we decided to have our own turn at our very own Melon Carving baby carriages.baby shower melon carving

Making This Cute Baby Shower Idea

We are clearly not experts at this but Sylvia and her friend has lots of fun and we simply gave it our best shot. We began by cutting the Melon as shown in the image below. I did the carving as it was a little too dangerous for Sylvia. She did the scooping.

Cutting The Watermelon

So we cut out one quarter from the Melon and then Sylvia got scooping with the spoon. We are not ones to waste food so we collected the melon into a bowl to make Otai a Tongan Drink where the base ingredient is Melon. Sylvia is half Tongan so it was a good opportunity to be a little cultural.

We then had our carriage, placed it on a plate and set to work adding wheels made from babybells. Sylvia added the cheese wheels to her carriage using tooth picks. She then added frozen fruit into the melon carriage.

I have seen the baby head made in the past using an orange and that is a good idea but we had no oranges at home and wanted to use what we had so we opted for a large strawberry and added two black olives to create eyes.

We placed the baby head into the middle of the carriage and our baby carriage was complete. This is  fantastic idea for a baby shower or in our case for having fun carving and spending time together. We made two Melons and John and Sylvia enjoyed eating theirs.

So it wasn’t perfect but it was fun. They say it’s the process not the end product that counts and I’m sure Sylvia will remember having fun creating something with her mother rather than how it looked.

My daughter really did have fun and we were able to enjoy time together doing something a little silly but interesting.  I hope you enjoyed reading this post. It’s the first new post for our Kitchen Fun series. You might also love our Vegetable Train post! Why not check it out!
