One of my student /customers Sharron Nickerson recently created a wedding fruit display for a wedding that she hosted at her home. It was her first large fruit carving display.

4th of July watermelon carving - Striped Pedestal BowlThis article will show you a bunch of photos of 4th of July watermelon carving photos. Most were sent in by my students and blog readers and a couple of the photos are carvings that I made for my 4th of July BBQ party.

I’ll show you some Striped Pedestal Watermelon Bowls and some American Flag fruit salads made by students who learned from my lessons.

The first are photos of 4th of July watermelon carvings from Christine Bevins who took my idea for a flag carved 4th of July, red white and blue watermelon salad that I show in another blog article and created her own. 

Christine’s rendition is fun, isn’t it? The added pin wheels make it even more festive.

If you have carved a fun 4th of July watermelon carving, or a striped salad bowl as I show in my previous blog article a couple of days ago, send me your 4th of July watermelon carving photos. I’d love to see them.
