A break from cooking. Had an idea.
Cute pot, right? No, we didn’t make the pot. Just the pineapple flower on top.
Mr. Foodie Call got one of those Edible Arrangements a couple of months ago from the women at work for Boss Day, Manager Day, whatever it was… Edible Arrangements. Those insane fruit bouquets that you can eat? Well, Mr. Foodie Call got one. The family devoured it. Very cool gift.
We actually have never really gotten one of those as a gift or have even bought one. They always seemed so expensive.
When Mr. Foodie Call’s fruit arrangement was kicked, I started to dissect it to see how they put it together and what it entailed. It really did not look hard. And it wasn’t. A couple of kabob sticks, some foam, fancy cut fruit…not too bad. Long story short: The kids decided they wanted in on this fruit cutting thing and the Fruit-Teacher-Pot idea was born.
Ours is a toned down Edible Arrangement with one change. Instead of a throw away pot, I decided to use a really cool mixed media stone pot to set it in. That way the teachers could have an actual gift to keep. These pots are my new obsession.
These are the mini pots. They are available in mini, small, medium, large, and extra-large. I’m hooked!
The kids and I made 8 fruit arrangements, all with these mini pots.
My oldest has 5 teachers. These would have taken FOREVER had we gone with a larger size.
The arrangements varied quite a bit based on the fruit cuts and how sick of making them the kids were. 🙂
Here are a couple more pictures of the mixed media pots.
So, so cute.
If you have any questions about purchasing these pots, please email the owner of Nests & More Creations:
Don’t you want to be a teacher so that we can make you one of these? Ha.
Below is an example of a completed gift. This pot had a sand dollar instead of the medallion.
For my youngest’s teacher. Love 6-year-old handwriting.
