How to Make Fruit Kabobs

First Birthday Party Planning

Happy Birthday Jack! I can’t believe it’s already been a year (back in 2012) by the time I’ve posted this, you’ll almost be 13 months, but hey…I’m still catching up from this trip. We headed to CA for J’s birthday and got to hang with family and friends while we were there. It always goes so quickly. Jack did really well for a 3-hour time difference coupled with the Daylight Savings time switch over. Coming back has been an adjustment for me in the time zone department.
On a budget like we were (omg! parties can be so expensive!)

I use and  Amazon to find the best deals!

If you’re looking for the kabobs or cupcakes how-to,  just a scroll down!


Here are some of my favorite shots from our trip.

The Fruit Kabobs were such a hit!

How To:

~ Strawberries slices – slice vertically
~ Cantaloupe and Honeydew Melon (use a baller for uniform look)
~ Blackberries
~ Cubed Pineapple
~ Pattern the same fruits the same way each time so they look uniform if you’re going for the below look!
Have fun and watch your fingers – the skewers can getcha!
