I was asked to bring fresh fruit to a lunch the other day. I decided to be festive and instead of a bowl of fresh fruit, I put them on wooden skewers. I wanted to be fancy so came up with this idea to display the fruit. My original idea was to use a decorative squash to set on top of pitcher with the wooden sticks stuck into it. As you can see in picture, the squash became a part of my fall decoration, as it proved to be too hard to stick the skewers into it. So when that failed, I took a piece of Styrofoam and put it in the top of pitcher.
The only thing I would do different is not to assemble until I got to the lunch location. It proved to be hard to travel in this condition.
