Princess Party

                Hello Everyone : ) did you miss me? just kidding, anyhow May 8th was my baby girl Rose's 5th Birthday, and we had a princess party theme. Everyone had to come dressed up as a princess it was really fun, and the food was great.  I made Party wings, tea sandwiches, Macaroni Salad,
                                         Sandra lee fruit wands (which was a big hit with the kids)
  and a Cookie Platter. I store bought the cake it was a lovely princess castle cake.

The kids had the time of their lives. So this how to make the fruit wands  

 1 cantaloupe, peeled
 2 cups vanilla yogurt
 2 tablespoons honey
 1 (2-pound) container pre-cut mixed fruit cubes (such as pineapple, cantaloupe, melon, watermelon)
16 whole strawberries

Cut the cantaloupe in half and remove all seeds from 1/2 with a spoon. Slice a tiny bit off the bottom so it sits flat like a bowl. Place on a plate.
Place cantaloupe half with seeds, seed side down on a plate.
In a bowl, whisk together yogurt and honey; pour into the cantaloupe bowl for dip.
To make wands, slide cubes of fruit onto skewers, leaving 1 inch at both ends of each skewer. Stick 1 end into cantaloupe half, top the skewer with a strawberry. Eat and Be Happy
