Simple Fresh Fruit Kabobs

This is a simple treat that you can make and serve to friends.  Or you can prepare these fruit kabobs to take on a picnic, even just for yourself to eat in front of the telly.

I have an oval glass plate that depicts the Swan Boats in the Boston Public Gardens that is sentimental to me and I used it to plate my kabobs.  I then served them to the ladies of my book group when they met at my house.
