Cornucopia of Summer Fruits (Crowd Size)
I also use the watermelon to make a basket out of it. Lay it flat on it's bottom (may need to trim a small amount of the melon on the bottom to make it sit without rolling.) Then I cut the left side in a nice edge, but make sure you leave a piece of the watermelon on the top to "make" a handle. Then cut the right side, leaving a part on the top for the other side of the handle. Then scoop out the melon inside the watermelon and cut away the excess that is hanging on the handle. Then you can fill it with your favorite fruits. I recommend letting the watermelon rest 24 hrs before using it for a display vessel. I also like to make a fruit dip and put it in a colored bowl. Then place it in the middle of the "basket". It is really cute to use for any occasion. Hope this helps someone else come up with an addition to your special day.
