Summer is coming and soon we’ll see bins of watermelon in the grocery stores! Instead of just serving watermelon wedges, think about creating a centerpiece out of it. If you happen to get a tasteless one, this might be a way to salvage it for another purpose.
While this is not like my usual posts, I just had to share these ideas. Perhaps they’ll inspire you to try something different. Some of these ideas are easy and some more difficult.
Are you brave enough to try this?
Now, the next one is way beyond my ability! Don’t think I’ll be trying this, but if you are artistic, go for it! The headdress is from radishes and greenery.
Made with leaves carved out of the watermelon rind, this next creation uses long carrot curls for the petals, and black raspberries for the center! Soak the long carrot shavings in ice water to make them curl. Then, place them to look like the flower petals. Use toothpicks or skewers to hold everything in place.
Another melon creation made from cantaloupe!
The best video for directions on how to do the roses is on YouTube at this site…
This bird is easier than it looks. Hold everything together with skewers and then cut off with pliers at the entrance point to hide it.
See my Fruit & Vegetable Creations post for pictures of the construction.
Now if you are brave and you feel inspired, it is your turn to try these watermelon creations for your centerpiece! Beautiful, aren’t they? Thanks to the chefs on Royal Caribbean for the inspiration and for instructions on YouTube!
I’m starting on the Watermelon Rind and Carrot Curls Flower!
What have you got to lose?
If it doesn’t turn out, just eat it!
