Watermelon Party Week Round II: Food and Drink Ideas

*** Parts of this post were pulled from last year’s “Watermelon Party Week” in August 2012

Fresh watermelon slices is the easy food/decor option for a watermelon party:

1. watermelon on a stick, 2. watermelon balls, 3. fresh watermelon

On a stick, in a ball or the traditional triangle!  But what else?

We thought we’d roll with a picnic theme meaning each child picks a little sack lunch out of a giant picnic basket and grabs a blanket to go find a spot on the grass to sit and enjoy!

1. galvanized bucket image, 2. blankets image

Simply roll the blankets up and place them in a galvanized bucket or cool basket with a little “take one” sign (customized by yours truly).

Pure delight.

Popsicleswatermelon pops, cupcakes and cookies round out our meal and curb that sweet tooth:

1. watermelon pops, 2. cupcakes, 3. cookies, 4. Popsicles

And there’s plenty of room to get creative with your drinks as well:

1. punch bowl, 2. mason jars, 3.  watermelon martini

How cute are those little mason jars?!  So simple, and amazing what a small shred of coordinating fabric can do!  Whether you’re going alcoholic like this watermelon martini or non alcoholic there’s great options to choose from.
