Fun watermelon skewers are perfect for parties! So easy to make and fun to eat, these watermelon skewers are always a hit!
Are you ready for all the 4th of July festivities this weekend? I absolutely can’t wait! This year, we’re hosting family and friends at the farm for a fun celebration after watching the parade downtown.
Have I ever told you how much I love parades? There is just something magical them!
The whole town comes together smiling, cheering and having the best time dressed in their most festive red, white and blue. The old cars are all sparkly where they’ve been buffed to a high sheen and you’ll be hard pressed to find a speck of dirt on the tractors as they go by since they’ve been scrubbed clean for the big day. I absolutely love it!
And don’t even get me started on fireworks. Mercy, I’m a sucker for a great fireworks show. Thankfully, we can see the town’s fireworks display in the distance from the farm, but if history is anything to go by, there will be more than a few shot from our field, too!
For our get together, I’m planning on having these fun watermelon skewers. I first made them for the kids a few years ago, but the adults loved them just as much! They are so simple to make and I love that you can make them a day in advance and store them in an airtight container. Then, on the day of the party, I arrange the skewers by poking them into the rind of another whole watermelon.
I have one word of advice though – make plenty. They go fast and are a fun treat that everyone loves!
Here’s how I make my watermelon skewers. I hope you love them as much as we do!
Watermelon Skewers Recipe
- 1 whole seedless watermelon cut into 1-inch thick slices
- 2 - 3 pints fresh blueberries
- 1 3 - 4 inch wide star cookie cutter
- chopsticks or bamboo skewers
- 1 whole watermelon for serving
- Cut star shapes out of watermelon slices using your star cookie cutter. Skewer 3 to 5 fresh blueberries onto each chopstick or bamboo skewer, followed by a watermelon star for the top of the skewer. Repeat until all skewers are assembled.
- Place skewers into an airtight container if not serving immediately. To serve, poke bottom end of each skewer into the whole watermelon.
