How To Pick The Sweetest & Juiciest Watermelon
  • For a tastier watermelon, choose one that’s round in shape versus oblong. These are the females and naturally sweeter (just like us girls!).
  • A yellow belly means they were ripened in the field. Pick these!
  • Heavier melons are best. They’re extra juicy.
  • More veining is a result of multiple pollination. They’re sweeter as well!
  • If in tact, choose ones with a green stem (versus brown and dried up). This shows they were picked nice and ripe.

Lastly, when eating watermelon, we suggest dressing the part and serving in style. Place slices on pretty dishes for an easy, beautiful display. We prefer blue! A simple feta salad is summer on a plate. We also love using wedges as a garnish for drinks and cocktails. After all, the garnish is the best part.
We hope you enjoy this simple Summer past time as much as we do. Happy National Watermelon Day pretty ladies!
Also, I want to give Katie a HUGE thank you {my intern this Summer}, who helped style and take these beautiful photos! She came all the way from Indiana just to put this together. She is seriously so talented and I just adore her. If you ever need photos {family, baby or something fun}, give this lady a call! She makes you feel so comfortable behind the lens. 
P.S.  How to assemble the perfect summer cheese board and tomorrow I’m sharing what to wear when hostessing!
