Party Recap

I had a "sweet" watermelon picnic party to celebrate summer and my grandma's 80th birthday.

I used red and white checked fabric as my inspiration and went from there adding pops of bright green, watermelon, ants and a few rustic touches with burlap and raffia.

I made a fabric banner as well as a "Celebrate" banner to decorate with. Cute watermelon and ant cutouts were made using my Cricut and used for centerpieces.

I completed the look with custom cupcake toppers and party favor tags for a super "sweet" party perfect for the summer!

    Hi Gay Millner, I purchased these cupcake toppers from an Etsy shop. It doesn't look like they are actually still selling them. Sorry.
