Fruit kebobs are always a hit. Sometimes I dunk the very top piece in chocolate or vanilla candy coating for a little extra flair.

Marinated fruit is fun too. Combine a bottle of sweet wine (Riesling, white zin, etc), 1-3 cups sugar (to your taste), a couple of cinnamon sticks, some star anise, and cloves. Simmer about 30 minutes to get sugar melted and flavors combining. Cool marinade and add to fruit. Marinade at least four hours. *Because this isn't cooked very long, a fair amount of alcohol remains. To minimize alcohol, I have done this with half wine and half fruit juice.
