Whether we are entertaining or guests....we enjoy bringing a "Smile to the table" with a carved melon full of fruit...pretty. entertaining...appetizing and good for you ...what a combination ! Here ae examples of two of the simpler motifs you can use in just minutes to bring your "ho hum dish to pass" to a whole new level..the STAR of the picnic table !
Froggie is easy....cut a quarter of the melon in a wedge and that becomes his mouth...his eyes can be strips from the wedge...eyeballs can be any berry...His lega and feet are also cut from the wedge. Fill with the melon you have cut out...add other fruits of the season and have him be the smiling star of your table.
A popular design we often use is a basket filled with other kinds of melon, berries....mmmmm...so pretty and so delicious...you may want to prepare more "filling" as it disaappears very quickly.
Adding appetite appeal to the goodness nature has already supplied...mmmmm
