Watermelon Boats

Martha Stewart Living, August 2007

What cookout is complete without the finishing touch of perfectly ripe, icy-cold watermelon? Enliven the presentation by serving the fruit in crisp wedges standing tall like little boats (cut a sliver from the rind so it stands level), with jaunty nautical flags made from colored masking tape flying from toothpick masts.

    You could use electric tape from the hardware store, or color your tape with a Sharpie.

    You can find colored masking tape at Micheal's craft stores.
