Happy Birthday, Victoria!

Birthday Carving

Last weekend, my daughter celebrated her birthday.  The weather was perfect, so we had an outdoor BBQ on the patio with lots of friends, food and drinks.  I spent a few hours carving this watermelon for the occasion.   Not only did it spell out “Victoria Happy B-Day”, but I had carved roses around the sides and back of the watermelon, and hollowed out the inside so that it could hold a large amount of watermelon, cantaloupe and honeydew balls.   It was a very pretty and very functional carving!  I also used a q-tip and some adhesive to add some silver sparkles to the lettering so that it shimmered in the light.

The watermelon carving turned out to be a huge hit, as we poured vodka over the melon balls and served them to our guests on skewers.  It was a very nice and refreshing way to enjoy some fruit and vodka at the same time, on a hot and sunny afternoon.   If you’re looking for an easy and refreshing way to add some kick to your next BBQ, this is the way to do it!

Happy Birthday, Victoria!  I hope you had a great day!
