Posted by on
What better way to embrace summer than with a WATERMELON-THEMED PARTY! (...Or if you're in the other hemisphere, you can create some summer vibes and help scare winter away!)
Our Light & Co Lime Green Get-Kit-Done Instant Party Kits make it super simple to entertain in bright summer style!
LIGHT & CO: GET THE LOOK - SWEET SUMMER WATERMELON PARTY
With the hot hot hot weather we've been having (ok, Melbourne, maybe you're not consistently hot, but we have had a few scorchers!) now is the perfect season to throw a refreshing WATERMELON PARTY! Whether you are celebrating a birthday, having a garden party or just want to embrace our warm weather, our watermelon theme with its combo of zesty lime hues, bright reds and pinks just screams S-U-M-M-E-R!
The first step is our Light & Co GREEN DECORATE-IT-KIT, chock-a-block full of amazing quality balloons and hanging decorations.
WATERMELON WALL BACKDROP: We used our kit's lime green plus red balloons to create a giant slice of watermelon, attached easily to the wall with our BALLOON STICK UPS. We added in a few MINI BLACK BALLOON "pips" to make our watermelon slice more authentic, and MINI RED BALLOONS to fill in any white spaces. Next we inflated our WATERMELON FOIL BALLOON with helium to hover over the table. To balance out the backdrop we added in a couple of bunches of our beautiful MARBLED BALLOONS in swirly tones of green, reds and pinks, securing them at various heights to the backs of chairs.
PAPER FAN TABLE TRIM: We used good old blutac to stick our lime green paper fans to the underside of the party table, creating a gorgeous fru fru frill along the edge. You could try using alternating colours as well for an even more eye-catching effect.
To set the table for our watermelon party we used the Light & Co LIME GREEN DIG-IN-DON'T-WAIT KIT (Add in a red or pink kit too if you have more guests), using the plates, napkins and cutlery for individual place settings.
- Our tissue paper confetti in green and pink hues, scattered across the table top
- Gorgeous mini bottles of fizz: attach the paper straws with coordinating washi tape
- Watermelon lollipops from happy lab gourmet confectionists
