I carved this melon yesterday and used it as a centerpiece for a dinner table. It was perfect with the yellow and orange flowers that we also have in our dining room. It took me an hour to make this flower but I'm just learning now! :-) Hopefully I'll be faster with more practice in carving fruit and veggies. I am pretty glad with what this melon looks like. And it's not too hard either - I used only one knife - a super thin one. If you are interested I could make a DIY post with step-by-step carving.
And here's Uno who was hanging around and helping me as much as he could :-)
