Watermelon Summer Party

Watermelon-party

Summer always reminds us of relaxing afternoons and evenings filled with friend and family hangouts, sweet drinks, and of course, the perfect juicy bite of watermelon. So we are obsessed with this watermelon themed party idea by Carly and Amanda of the Creative Journal! From cute cocktails to a picture-perfect jelly cake, there’s pink and green galore. Check out what the gals have to say below, and then read their instructions on making watermelon fondant toppers!

“If there is one fruit that screams ‘SUMMER!’ it has to be watermelon. So why not make it the theme of your next summer party, get together or excuse for a fun night with the girls?  Throw a few sweet treats together, a watermelon jelly layer cake (only for the brave!), add in a couple of Watermelon cocktails (how do Watermelon Mojitos or Watermelon Sangrias sound?!) and you have yourself a little summer soiree! And to help get you started… here are the step by step instructions on how to make Watermelon Fondant Toppers!”
