What is a fruit bowl? At one time, the fruit bowl was a special place in the kitchen. It was where children could congregate and eat their “fruit” in good health. In other ads, parents even use the term fruit bowl as a substitute for curse words. So, what is the fruit bowl to you?
A fruit bowl is simply a bowl that has fresh fruit placed into it. This type of bowl typically comes in bright colors like green, red, yellow, orange, and even blue. Sometimes, there is an assortment of fruits to choose from. They come in all sizes and can fit almost any pot or pan. Many have removable bowls that can be cleaned easily.
Parents often give children fruit baskets or fresh fruit bowls as gifts during the holidays. They are perfect for children ages three and up. Some of them have themes that match the different holidays. For example, at Halloween, there would be pumpkin themes, while at Christmas, berries are appropriate. Some bowls can be used for a wide variety of events and can be given as gifts to friends, neighbors, or even just family members.
Some bowls come with a lid that also functions as the base. You can place fresh fruit inside and add a variety of items to the bottom of the bowl. The possibilities are endless. For example, you could place a few fresh pears in a pie dish or salad if you are giving it as a gift to a friend or family member. If you want to make a gift for your daughter, you could fill the bowl with chocolate candies or other sweets.
Fruit bowls are great for taking on camping trips, as well. A campfire bowl filled with apples, oranges, pineapples, and other fruits makes a great meal while out in the woods. It can easily be heated if needed. You can find some very cute and decorative bowls that serve as campfires as well. There are also large fruit bowls made in shapes of tractors, footballs, soccer balls, or other things that would look great on a camping trip.
A fruit bowl can be used to impress guests at any type of party. You can fill the bowl with a variety of fruits, crackers, cheeses, meats, and other small pieces of food. Use the small pieces to add color and fun to the room. If you want to do something different at a wedding, you could fill the bowl with small pieces of fruit and flowers. The bride can eat while the groom serves the guests.
