Watermelon Centerpiece

Watermelon Centerpiece 

Cut about 1/3 of the top of a watermelon off and set aside, then cut a small part off the bottom so it sits flat on the table or plate.....set this aside...with the part you cut off slice in 1 inch slices and use cookie cutters or free hand cut shapes of flowers or hearts or letters or whatever you want , also use other fruits such as pineapples, cantaloupe, honeydew melon....put them on skewers...add grapes to make the flowers tops...you may also add strawberries or grapes to skewers just for added depth to the arrangement....add the skewers into the watermelon you have set aside and arrange them however you would like them, I made this one to say Ashley it was for my daughters bridal shower...I also used fresh greens around the bottom to cover the top of the watermelon to hide the bottom of the skewers, you can be creative and do this however you like, i free hand cut all my shapes and letters and this was my first attempt.
