Baby Watermelon Carriage Pram. Baby Shower Food

My totally awesome work colleague is leaving to have her first baby and what better way to celebrate the occasion then with a bit of creativity. After coming across a picture on the internet of a baby carriage made out of watermelon I thought I would give it a crack.

I’ve never bought a whole watermelon before, let alone a 10kg (22lbs) one! The more you cut the more fruit and juice there seems to be. We’ll be having watermelon daiquiris and granitas for quite a few nights to come. It took about 1.5 hours all up to shell it and get the rockmelon head firmly fixed in place. I put it in a baking dish and used the seatbelt around it for the car trip to the party. I was really happy with how it turned out.

The parents to be got a Beagle pup about 6 months ago and he is one handsome dog. I took my original Hipster Corgi design and redrew it into a Beagle that looks like their dog. I got it printed on a baby onesie through my RedBubble store.

In with the loot was the highly practical book  HTML for Babies – a must have for any nerd baby and a plush dinosaur, because dinosaurs are the bomb and I wanted to impart my favorite things onto a fresh mind.  (Pirates were less appropriate for a baby. However, I’ll save that for a future birthday).

Can’t wait to meet you Baby Bobo!
