Impromptu Fourth of July Party!
Sometimes ants can make the party! I use this clever ant watermelon holder from Oriental Trading Company as a centerpiece! It is perfect for any occasion, but my 6-year-old added blueberries as a festive Fourth of July decoration. We also found a few red metal ants online to add to the theme.

3/4oz simple syrup
