I was chatting with a friend and the subject turned to my daughter's summertime birthday activities. She's too young, but we were thinking how fun it would be for kids to make mini fruit jackolanterns - using those tiny watermelons I've seen at the supermarket. Then I got to thinking, what's stopping us from adding candles and using them as decoration at a nighttime party? You know, along a garden wall? Is the rind to soft or something? Would it rot too quickly for a 4 hour party? And, if it could work, why is this not all over Martha Stewart's magazines ... the idea seems *so* her :) Thoughts?
