Bridal Shower Watermelon Lighted Centerpiece
This would make a cute centerpiece on the food table. In addition, you can use the watermelon that you scoop out for fruit kabobs or a fruit salad.
- 1 large watermelon
- utensils used for pumpkin carving
- a book with watermelon carving designs
- 1 tealight candle
- 1 large glass plate
Cut bottom of watermelon so it can stand up on the plate and scoop out watermelon. I used the watermelon from inside in fruit salad for the shower.
Attach stencil to front of watermelon, use a toothpick to poke holes along where you will cut. Take off the stencil and you will see a dotted line picture to carve out. Put a tea light inside.
Note: You cannot do this in advance as the rind starts to wither as a pumpkin would.

Amazingly clever and great to look at.
Nicely done! I really should think about getting married one of these days.

What a unique & adorable idea. This would be remembered and talked about for years to come!
This is gorgeous - what a fun idea - and a different twist on the "watermelon boat"!
