When you implement the watermelon party ideas, rest assured that you will have a tropical paradise in your backyard. Watermelon party favors and the food are also a factor in order to complete the theme of your celebrations.

I'm not the DIY kind of a person, so having the watermelon party supplies already packaged does make things a bit easy. Once you figure out the decorations, you have won most of the battle.  Of course, the watermelon party ideas, and the decorations that you choose will also depend on the age of the guest of honor.

For an outdoor watermelon party, this watermelon party set with plates, cups, and table cloths would set the tone very nicely.

A Hawaii themed balloon arrangement will also add a  tropical feel to your watermelon party.  Although not specifically watermelon designed, they fit well because they are also of tropical design.

I also love this personalized party banner that serves as a backdrop.  Obviously, you will get to personalize it for your purposes:

You can joyfully learn to make your own watermelon party backdrop using very supplies:

I must say that the idea of making your own watermelon banner from a printable is probably fun, and genius! Besides the printing and the cutting - you just need twine and clothespins to have this ready to hang for your watermelon themed party.

Watermelon party favors

We don't want to skimp on the party favors and give our guests something that is unrelated to the party theme.  In fact, the give itself may not necessarily need to be watermelon themed, but the packaging definitely does need to match up.

Watermelon Mason Jars:

The watermelon Mason Jars can serve as the party favor in themselves, or as the packaging for the thank-you gift to your guests.  This is a nifty gift that will leave your guests reminiscing about your gathering for a long time (as long as they see or use their Mason Jar).

Watermelon party food



Besides the main course, you'll still want to have some watermelon themed food items. The drinks, desserts, and salads will give you just that.

If you have something else in mind, besides baking your own watermelon themed cakes and cupcakes from scratch, edible toppers and decorations may save the day.



Of course, you can make your own watermelon party food, following the below ideas. They are easy to pull off.  You will notice that desserts and baked goods make the best watermelon themed food for a party. Even one of these will make a difference:





1.  Making lollies out of watermelon was genius! They won't melt, or mess up with the kiddies' teeth. Check this mom's whole party play here.  The birthday party itself is not watermelon themed, but it was incorporated nicely.

2.  Nothing will bring the summer festive atmosphere into your watermelon themed party like these watermelon sorbet wedges.

3. The watermelon cookies are actually easy to pull off.  Do your favorite cookie recipe, cut each cookie in half - and start decorating with icing sugars of various colors.  Find the instructions here.

4. Ain't no party if there's no cake now, is there? I love how this mom pulled hers off for the baby's first birthday.
