Summertime and watermelons go hand in hand. They are great to have at a picnic, make drinks with or use for decorations. Enjoy these great watermelon ideas and treats.
Fine Stationery has an assortment of watermelon invitations to choose from. Host a picnic, a summer barbecue or an actual watermelon themed party.
If you are hosting a watermelon themed party, Plum Party has some fun party supplies to use. I love these watermelon napkin rings.
Go all out and decorate the porch with Watermelon Lights.
A couple of my favorite recipes using watermelons are Watermelon Mojitos and here is the recipe for my Watermelon Summer Salad:
3/4 cup halved, thinly sliced onion
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 1/2 quarts seeded, cubed watermelon
3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/2 cup pitted black olive halves
1 cup fresh mint
2 tablespoons olive oil
1) Place the onion slices in a small bowl with the lime juice and let it stand for 10 minutes.
2) In a large bowl, combine the watermelon cubes, feta cheese, black olives, onions with lime juice and mint. Drizzle olive oil over it and toss to blend. Enjoy!!
There are many different ways to carve a watermelon for a party. Here are some great ideas like a Cascading Watermelon, a Pool Party, Southwest Salsa Bowl and a Smiling Watermelon. Be sure to check out my Edible Fruit Arrangements post for some other carving ideas.
