Watermelon Party Week: Decor

Oh Happy Day is right!  Let us go on a little picnic shall we?  This watermelon party decor is welcoming, sweet and most importantly easy.  The above chalkboard is actually a reclaimed headboard – seriously folks you can turn nearly any surface into a chalk board with a little chalkboard paint.

Keep the chalkboard theme moving throughout the party with signs for the food table, favors and games:

It’s Chalkboard Mania!!  Oh and ps, each of these chalkboards is also available on Etsy (minus our photo-shopped text), links below.

 We also love, love, love the idea of tons of fresh flowers in vintage cans.  Again, each of the below cans be found on Etsy (links at the bottom of this post), or get creative and hit up your local thrift stores… who knows what you might find:

A red wagon is the perfect home for for iced water bottles, vintage Coca Cola bottles or any other watermelon drinks.  We like to picture this wagon parked at the end of a long red gigham covered picnic table, perhaps with a little chalkboard sign saying “take one”??? See how I just brought this post full circle?!

And if you’re wondering how our darling banners, cupcake toppers, signs and party hats play into this whole deal… see below:


Tomorrow we’ll be tying all of this adorable decor right in with the favors and activities to complete the perfect watermelon picnic.  And if you’ve already fallen in love with this party (or any other party in our shop) please by all means leave a comment on any post this week to enter to win a digital “you print” invite!

  1. Going to start gathering old cans now! Great idea!

  2. I’ve used chalkboard spray paint with great success too… love that most of this decor is something we can reuse for future gatherings.
