When hosting a party or shower, it’s a great touch to include the food being served into the decor. For a baby shower that was held in the afternoon, I crafted a watermelon bassinet. It was both a decorative element and a refreshing beverage.

If you’re wondering which fruits to use, I say go with whatever you enjoy most, whatever is in season, and whatever you think will look the best. A fruit basket can be transformed into a bowl, a baby carriage, or any number of other shapes. Put your creative thinking skills to use.

What is baby shower watermelon?

It’s a watermelon cut out like a stroller, loaded with fruit, and topped with a lemon to resemble a baby’s face. You may get really inventive and even give it wheels if you want to!

It took some convincing to convince people to eat the Watermelon Baby Carriage Fruit Salad even though it looked “too pretty to eat.” This nutritious party treat is excellent for a baby shower because it is packed with luscious fruit.

As long as you stick to seasonal produce, a watermelon may double as a cute and inexpensive treat and decoration for a baby shower.

What fruits can I use in a baby carriage fruit salad?

This watermelon fruit salad can be customized with any fruit you prefer. Only the watermelon is needed.

Don’t choose fruits that turn brown rapidly, as this will be sitting out for a while. There are many delicious options, including berries, cantaloupe, grapes, oranges, and honeydew.

Fancy things up with chocolate-covered fruits like strawberries, raspberries, and cherries.

For the baby’s face, I used a lemon, but a peeled cantaloupe or other melon would work just as well. However, if you are peeling it, you should not use a marker to make any markings on it.

How to tell if a watermelon is ripe

The ripeness of a watermelon can be judged by the depth and sharpness of its ridges. Watermelons with flatter ribs may still need more time to develop. An aroma slightly resembling that of a melon indicates that a watermelon is ready to be eaten.

Can I Make This in Advance?

Yes, but only if the right fruit is used. This can be made up to two days in advance of the baby shower, but I wouldn’t recommend doing so. It can be prepared the night before and kept fresh in the fridge for the next day. Once prepared, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and store it in the refrigerator.


  • The rectangular form of a watermelon makes it simpler to cut.
  • Cantalope
  • Honeydew
  • Strawberries
  • Blackberries
  • Raspberries
  • Grapes
  • Pineapple
  • Blueberries
  • Kiwis


  1. The berries should be rinsed and left in the strainer to dry. Make sure the watermelon is clean and dry before serving.
  2. Watermelon should be placed on a chopping board. Mark off the areas that will be sliced off.
  3. Get out the V-shaped or scalloped cutter and put it to good use. In any case, a sharp knife will do the trick. Keep in mind that you’ll have to make a cut in the flesh.
  4. In order to begin removing the meat, the top must first be removed. Melon scoopers and ice cream scoops work as well. I quickly cut squares and removed them to save time.
  5. After you’ve extracted the meat, scrape the sides to remove any bits of meat that were left behind. A spoon or an ice cream scoop will do. When the red has been removed, wipe down the area and set the melon, cut side up, to dry on the cutting board.
  6. The melon can be peeled in half with a carrot peeler. Remove the seeds from this section before cutting it off. Set it aside for a moment. Baby’s face will look like this when it’s born.
  7. Clean out the seeds and continue peeling the remainder of the melon. You should remove two 1-inch slices and set them aside with the head. The hands and feet are here.
  8. Get the rest of the melon into bite-sized pieces. Prepare kiwi, honeydew, and pineapple slices. Cut each strawberry into four halves; set aside one entire strawberry for the hat.
  9. Throw together your fruit salad and squeeze in some lemon juice to prevent browning.
  10. Put the fruit inside the watermelon.
  11. The eyes are blueberries, which are inserted inside small circles cut into the cantalope. Make a hole for the mouth and insert a pacifier or, as I did, a marshmallow ice cream cone.
  12. It’s simple to use your hands and feet. To make the rings resemble human fingers and toes, I made tiny triangle cuts in them.
  13. A whole, unhulled strawberry was mine, and I proceeded to slice it vertically. I fannied the slices out and secured it on the infant’s head with a toothpick.
  14. With the baby’s head tucked in close to the hood and their feet and hands tucked into the corresponding openings, you’ve got yourself a watermelon bassinet!

Remove the seeds after cutting off the top and bottom. Next, insert your knife from one end all the way to the other end, close to where the two halves connect. To separate them without breaking anything, scrape away the skin about two inches below that point.
