Watermelon Party Decorations
If you know “watermelon” is your party theme of choice…there are so many creative ways to use watermelons or watermelon shapes and colors in your party.
I love the idea of a watermelon first birthday with the theme “One in a MELON”. You can also throw a “TWO sweet” party for a second birthday.

When it comes to making a Watermelon Cake, there are two popular ideas that are both equally adorable and delicious. The first is making a traditional cake that is themed watermelon or looks like a watermelon.
The second is to make a cake out of ACTUAL watermelon. Here is a Watermelon Layer Cake that does just this from Creative Green Living.
The fun part of doing this kind of cake is that any of the cake decorating ideas for the outside of your cake that you like, can be made using real watermelon instead of cake as the interior.
It’s fun and healthy.
