Sweet Summer Party Idea - A Watermelon Birthday

I just love the idea of having a watermelon themed birthday party. Not only is it unique, but the mix of pinks and greens is super cute! Here are some ideas to make your summer party extra fun! You could go with a unique watermelon cake and add a scoop of ice cream to stay cool on a hot summer day or you could carve a watermelon into cute and creative shapes and fill with assorted fruits. I created cupcake toppers for this invitation set, but they can also be attached to tooth picks and used in watermelon and fruit wedges as an alternative to cupcakes. Instead of soft drinks, serve watermelon coolers, smoothies or kool-aid and add a little mint leaf to the top. I would definitely recommend taking this party outdoors and having a picnic party, with gingham table clothes and spread blankets on the ground for the kids. Of course there are hundreds of adorable watermelon dresses and bows available for the birthday girl. I had a difficult time picking just one to feature in this collage.
