The $111 fruit bouquet consists of fresh cantaloupe, melon and dipped fruit arranged in an ornate Thanksgiving centerpiece.

Also, at Edible Arrangements, the fresh fruit basket, referred to as Thanksgiving #1 Centerpiece is on sale for $97. Unlike the  “Festival of Thanks” edible fruit bouquet, shown in a rectangular container, this one is standard oval container with fewer pieces of fruit.
