An Edible Centerpiece to Gobble Up

Is this not the cutest thing? A melon, pineapple, or pumpkin spiked with grape and cheese kabobs, slices of bell pepper and a pear face serves double-duty for Thanksgiving . It is both the star of the table and a healthy snack of cheese, fruit and vegetables.
I leave my pumpkins out until Thanksgiving, so I am grabbing a pumpkin from my yard to use as a base. Apples or pomegranates would be cute for "baby" turkeys.
One thing I found helpful while making the kabobs; microwave the cheese cubes for 20 seconds to soften. Cold cheese wants to break and crumble.
Here are directions for making your own turkey: http://www.food.com/recipe/Fruit-Gobbler-Turkey-Centerpiece-265373
