Watermelon Week! All watermelon! All the time!
So yesterday I shared the watercolor watermelon invites that Yuki and I made for her party. But what would a watermelon party be without a special watermelon dress? I was having a hard time deciding between a color blocked dress that mimicked a watermelon slice like this one, or a solid fabric with watermelon printed all over like this one. I was leaning toward the color blocked dress since that seemed easier, but finally I just asked Yuki and she said, without hesitation, the all over print dress.
For Yuki’s 4th birthday, we decided to throw a small party with a couple of her friends. We were talking about a theme (though the theme was definitely more for me, than for her), and I was really hoping that she wouldn’t say “Frozen.” Not that there is anything wrong with a Frozen party, but I just didn’t have it in me to do anything else Frozen related. So I googled “summer party themes” and as we were scrolling through, Yuki yelled out “watermelon!” It’s one of her favorite fruits. She probably called out a few other ideas, but I was pretty psyched about a watermelon theme, so I steered her in that direction (I love that we can still do that with her and yet she totally thinks it was all her idea) and off to Pinterest I went!
I started a Watermelon Party Pinterest board to collect my ideas, but the project we started with first was the invites, of course! I think I was inspired by these party favor holders, but I basically thought it would be fun to get Yuki involved by painting some watermelon invites!
