Summertime is when outdoor parties turn into themes of many places and times. Celebrate a birthday, anniversary, or just have friends over to have an Polynesian Luau. Put out the pole lamps, for atmosphere, and add a Tiki Mask to your table, to set the mood. Add assorted melons, grapes and other cut up fruits depending on your taste.

1) Use an oblong watermelon, slice ¼ inch off an end to
provide a stable base. Choose a pencil to draw the face,
making adjustments in scale to your particular watermelon.

2) Scoop out the nostrils using a melon baller - use a
small paring knife to clean up edges.

3) Cut out the inside mouth area with a paring knife,
leaving room for the teeth. Make the individual teeth, using the same small paring knife, then dig out a large area of flesh for the mouth cavity with a spoon.

4) Carve out the eyes, digging a deep cavity in each, for drama. Use a channel knife to carve details.

5) Take some of the carved out pieces to cut a "bone" decoration for top of head, and attach with a toothpick.
