She starts off with an adorable serving tray to make sure all the food stays in place. Then she cuts up watermelon, pineapple and mango while sprinkling in lots of sliced kiwis, strawberries, melon balls and stars, and lots of grapes. She even incorporates chocolate fondue and a cream cheese fruit dip for extra sweetness. The finishing touch: a mint and floral garnish!

Don’t be afraid to get creative! Take a cue from TikTok user @dmc.studiofl who cut up a dragon fruit and used it as a bowl for blackberries and blueberries—so genius! And by alternating the slices of grapefruit and orange, she created a stunning center display.
