Ideas for fruit tray arrangements include pineapples crosses, rainbows and faces. The latter is particularly suitable for a children's party.
To make a pineapple cross, slice a pineapple into quarters lengthwise. Cut each quarter of flesh from its skin, then cut into 1/2-inch slices. Rearrange these back onto the skins and place in a "X" shape. Arrange melon bites, berries, grapes and flowers around the cross.
For a rainbow tray, layer arcs of fruit in the colors of the rainbow. Strawberries, oranges, pineapples, green grapes and blueberries are potential fruits to use, according to Raspberry-Depot.
Platters which look like faces of children's favorite characters can be popular with kids. For example, strawberries could be used to make Elmo from Sesame Street, suggests Super Healthy Kids.
