Edible Fruit Arrangements Will Suit Any Occasion

Edible fruit arrangements are the fresh and exciting new way to celebrate any big event or special occasion. If you’ve never seen an edible arrangement, then you are in for a treat the first time you do. An edible arrangement is an artful design created using various fresh fruits, a few skewers, and a container of some kind. The fruit pieces are cut into fanciful shapes, such as:

  • A half moon
  • Various stars
  • Flowers
  • Animals
  • Sporting equipment
  • Gardening equipment
  • Fishing tackle
  • Race cars

The artists who create these arrangements place the fresh fruit pieces on the skewers, which are then artfully placed within a small container or basket. Sometimes the container is merely a simple vase or coffee mug, but sometimes the container is almost as elaborate as the fruit arrangement itself. The containers may be:

  • Shaped like a watering can for your favorite gardener
  • A toolbox for your handyman
  • Formed like a football, soccer ball, basketball, or tennis ball for a sports enthusiast
  • Painted with a playing card suit and chips motif
  • Shaped like a house for a housewarming present
  • Made to look like almost any animal, from rabbits to horses
  • Shaped like an Easter basket
  • A snowman lookalike
  • A Thanksgiving turkey
  • Shaped like a box of premium chocolates

Many of these edible fruit arrangements feature a delectable assortment of fresh fruits including watermelon, strawberries, grapes, cherries, mangoes, and kiwis. They are placed in the arrangement at the absolute peak of their freshness, so they are fully ripe and colorful, ready to be admired and eaten.

Some of these arrangements feature fresh fruits that have been dipped in chocolate. Varieties like milk, semi-sweet, dark, and white chocolate are all available with fresh fruit arrangements. Additional flavors like peanut butter and caramel are also available. For an extra decadent gift, some chocolate dipped fruits can be rolled in toppings like chopped nuts, coconut, cinnamon, and colored sugar before they are placed in the arrangement. This makes for an unforgettably delicious gift.

People love receiving edible fruit arrangements for any number of reasons. You might give them for:

  • Father’s Day
  • A graduation
  • The arrival of a new baby
  • Celebrating a special birthday
  • Commemorating a milestone wedding anniversary
  • Easter
  • Christmas
  • A get well gift
  • A “thinking of you” present

An edible gift is a great way to brighten anyone’s day. They are fun to receive and even more fun to share. In fact, sharing is the best way to enjoy these indulgent gifts, which should be eaten as quickly as possible – no hardship for most people! Once taking your arrangement home and opening the packaging, you should plan on eating the contents within about 24 hours. If you plan to store the fruit beyond that, remove the skewers from the container and place the fruit in a selection of airtight containers. Keep them in the refrigerator, and you are likely to get several more days of enjoyment out of your gift. Of course, if you’re having a party, you probably won’t have any leftovers. These edible fruit arrangements have a way of disappearing very quickly when you have company.
