Watermelon Party








Inspiration for party ideas can come from anywhere. I think I saw a Betsey Johnson necklace with a big watermelon charm on it at Dillard's and it gave me this idea. Or maybe it was the watermelon dress from Gymboree. Once I decide on a theme, it is amazing how items seem to pop up everywhere that coordinate well. I found watermelon bubbles at Dollar Tree for the goodie bags and watermelon taffy at a candy shop. I couldn't resist ordering the watermelon gumballs from ebay.
The ants were cut out using my Slice machine to put in the pocket of the invitations and for the goodie bags. Scrapbooking paper from Martha Stewart and my Project Life album kit was used for the invitations as well as dotted grosgrain ribbon.
