Need A Labor Day Centerpiece?
A watermelon centerpiece? Sure, why not! We get all a gape about stuffing pumpkins full of flowers (yes, I know, I love it too), so why not fill up their summer cousins with blooms galore and use them as gorgeous surprises on our cookout tables, at showers, pool parties or Memorial Day and Labor Day get-togethers? A watermelon is always the perfect answer to your summer hospitality needs!
