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.

Now onto the good stuff…the FOOD.  I just adore the idea of beautiful cakes made to look like watermelon.  Here are a few GORGEOUS options:

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.

Cupcakes are one of the easiest treats to serve at a party.  They are already pre-portioned and super duper delicious. If you can make those cupcakes adorable little watermelons….why not?

Watermelon Cookies

Watermelon themed cookies are also a fantastic idea for a watermelon themed party.  I love the idea of serving delicious themed cookies or watermelon shaped macarons.

I mean who doesn’t want a super yummy watermelon slice cookie?  

These cookies would also make amazing party favors.  You can wrap them up individually in cellophane bags and attach fun favor tags (these are included in the watermelon printables package).

Watermelon cookie cutter

To make watermelon cookies, you will need the right cookie cutter. There are several different shapes that you can choose from to make an adorable watermelon cookie.

One popular option is the triangular cookie cutter for the watermelon triangle or to make watermelon cookies on a stick.  The other most popular is the half circle with the bite mark.  

Both cutters are adorable!

 

Watermelon Drinks and Frozen Treats

Finally, let’s wash all these fun watermelon treats down with some watermelon drinks. The Watermelon Green Tea from Coupon Clipping Cook and the 5 minute Watermelon Lemonade from Perry’s Plate are awesome options for watermelon flavored drinks.

If you want a little ice cream substitute, you can also make some delicious Watermelon Popsicles (from The Little Sunny Kitchen) or Watermelon Sorbet (from Beyond the Chicken Coop).
