Summer Party Ideas - Watermelon

Later this month both my daughter, and my boyfriend's daughter are having a birthday. Last weekend I asked my boyfriend's daughter if she would like to have a small birthday party.  She was excited about the idea.  Originally I thought we would go with the ice cream theme, but when I took her to the Dollar Tree, she fell in the love with the idea of a Watermelon Party.  The Dollar Tree still has a lot of their summer party supplies available, but not for too much longer.  In this post I am going to share what supplies that we found, and in a later post I will share more about the party.

Here are the supplies she picked out.. 

They had two different plate designs with the watermelon theme.   I love the look of the sliced watermelon (upper right) but the plates are on the small side. So also like the bigger square plates, so we got those too.  We can use the square plates for the food, and the slice plates for side dishes or dessert.  The triangle slices are the napkins.  

We also picked out two different types of table coverings.  The bigger one has the watermelon slices and other fruit, and a smaller, round pink one.  I am not sure if we will use the pink one, but we planning to have the party outside so we can probably find some sort of use for it. 

She loved the round watermelon bowl. Most likely we are going to use it to serve, you guessed it, watermelon. I could only find two of the glasses (that are actually plastic)   I think I might use those as a centerpiece or in some decorative way. 

She really wanted to the paper lanterns.  We went ahead and got all three colors available because they match the colors of our plates and table covering. 

They had cute themed decor as well. I am not sure what we are going to do with these items yet, but I am sure we will decide on something. 

We found a few other random items that matched our theme.  I am going to put the watermelon candy in a themed gift basket for her. She loves the flowers on the extra package of napkins. They also matched out color scheme.  When I saw the inside of the Tropical Party coloring book I HAD TO HAVE IT.  It is seriously one of the cutest coloring books I have ever seen. 

They have pictures of fruit, and adorable animals doing all kind of summer activities. Have you ever seen a slice of watermelon hanging out on the beach eating a piece of watermelon?  I know I haven't.  

Or how about a sloth mermaid?  I know that does not match our theme, but I had to share the cuteness. 

Now that we have most of our supplies, it is time to plan our menu, and how we plan to decorate.  Stay tuned for more on our watermelon party.  

Remember if you are planning a party, and not able to find the supplies you want in store, they have an entire party supply section where you can buy online and ship free to the store!  Check online often, because seasonal themes are only available for a limited time.    They also have videos with party ideas and inspiration on the Dollar Tree website. Be sure to check it out.
