When little girls are growing up, they often seem to organize tea parties with their dolls and toys. As adults, tea time is still a great way to hang out with friends, family, or even new acquaintances. When is the last time you invited someone over for tea? Maybe you’re overdue to do it again!
In the video included here, you’ll discover how to turn a watermelon into the perfect addition to your tea party or any event this spring!
As you’ll see, in this foodie project, you’ll create a watermelon tea pot loaded with fruit!
To get started, you’ll need a round watermelon, a sharp chef’s knife, a melon baller, a paring knife, a circular cookie cutter, toothpicks, and an assortment of fruit.
Set the watermelon on its side and cut off 1 ½ inches from the top where the stem was.
Place this piece flat and use your cookie cutter to remove the stem. Place the ring-shape on a serving platter. This will be the base of your teapot.
Cut about 3 inches off the other side of the watermelon.
Set your watermelon up and start balling out pieces of the watermelon. Set these balls aside for now.
Cut off a 1-inch piece from the 3-inch slice and set aside. This will become the teapot lid. Cut the remaining piece in half. These will become the handle and spout.
Take one of these halves and with the paring knife remove the fruit.
Stick 4 toothpicks into the base and place the watermelon barrel on top.
Then stick 4 toothpicks into the ends of the handle and jab it onto the barrel.
Do the same thing to attach the spout. Finally add a toothpick to the lid and attach the circular piece you cut out at the beginning.
Now fill the empty watermelon shell with an assortment of fruit.
