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.
