Labor Day is usually the last hurrah for summer barbecues and picnics. Make it special by carving a watermelon basket. It makes such a pretty presentation, and fruit salad is an easy, refreshing treat for the last hot days of summer. It is quite easy to make, but be sure to plan ahead with your carving steps. To make it easier, check out my step-by-step instructions with photos. The design is only limited by your imagination, so feel free to experiment to suit the theme of your occasion. Watermelon is the popular choice for baskets, but other melons will work equally as well.
