Since the 4th of July falls on a Wednesday this year, I think we'll just celebrate all week....lol!
For our celebration tonight, I made a centerpiece for the front porch farmhouse table using a watermelon as a vase.
A watermelon vase is so easy to make........
Once you have all the melon cleaned out, find a bowl that's just the right size to fit in the hole. Fill your bowl with water and add fresh flowers.
There was quite a bit of meat in this watermelon......enough to fill a bowl, the top of the watermelon, and a ceramic watermelon.
I cut fresh mint from the herb garden to garnish my melon bowls and make Mojito's
I printed a mini banner to pin across my watermelon vase.
I thought it need a little more than the mini banner, so I added a Farmers Market sign.
I didn't use the traditional colors for my floral design.......
I wanted to use all different colors of flowers.......
But the majority of flowers I had in bloom were shades of purple......
SO, that's what I used!
I am using a watermelon theme on the front porch for the 4th so it will fit right in with everything else! If you missed my posts on the front porch decor.....here's a link to it......http://penny-pennystreasures.blogspot.com/2018/06/watermelon-decor-for-4th-of-july.html
