It seems my two daughters are eating watermelon for dessert at nearly every meal...summertime must be here!
To kick-off our "Summer Party Themes" series for kids' birthday parties, I thought it fitting to gather up everything we have at Polka Dot Market for you to throw a fun and refreshing "polka dot watermelon" party!
THE PARTY OUTFIT
We have the sweetest yellow gingham aline dress (above) with a large watermelon applique and free monogram name or initials for a limited time. Pair with one of our favorite boutique layered bows in the same colors as her dress.
And don't forget her shoes! Polka dot ribbon flip flops to match are a must...available in any custom ribbon colors.
Coming soon: Watermelon applique tees for boys and girls.
PARTY FOOD & FAVORS
At your polka dot watermelon party you'll need to have bowls of fresh, juicy summertime watermelon, of course! Cut into bite-size squares, triangles, or round "dots" with a melon-baller tool.
In addition to the healthy watermelon snacks for your guests, take a look at these watermelon iced favor cookies by Sugar Coated Cookies:
