Inspiration comes from all around us and today’s party was inspired by last night’s BBQ. Watermelon is a perfect summer snack or addition to any summer meal. Today’s party inspiration is brought to you by the one and only! Just Artifacts has everything you need to host your own fun watermelon party (except the watermelons of course!).
Once we chose the theme we started with the tassel garland. We chose the colors for the tassel and then went from there with bright pink and mint green. White and silver make perfect accent colors. Throughout the rest of the tableware we chose to stick with polka dots, stripes, and chevron patterns. Once we picked our theme and colors the hard part was done and the rest came together perfectly.
To add some flare to the table we used a paper fan and some crowns. This helps with the overall color scheme and adds some more dimension to the overall setting. We grabbed some paper plates, wooden cutlery, popcorn boxes, treat bags sealed with washi tape and ice cream cups, perfect and ready to serve whatever delicious treats you’ll be whisking up at your party!
We followed a polkadot theme with the drinks. We covered the drink stand with pink polka dot paper. We used pink polka dot paper party cups. We used pink polka dot and solid green paper straws with pink polka dot washi tape flags. What can we say?!? We like pink polka dots! We even used a pink polka dot table cloth! We put the jar of straws on top of an ice cream cup. The reason is because when you are putting together your buffet table you will want to put things at different heights to add more visual intrigue. Don’t be afraid to play with different heights and placements on your table.
A watermelon themed party would be so much fun for a little girls birthday, a bridal shower, a baby shower, or just for fun! What is your most inspiring fruit? Do you like the pink and green we chose or would you prefer classic red and green? Be sure to check us out on Pinterest for even more ideas and inspiration!
