Filled with your favorite homemade watermelon treats, fresh fruit and all things sweet, nothing is more easy, fun and perfect than sharing these sweet treats for “One In A Melon” shower, birthday celebration or summertime get-together!
SIMPLE & EASY ENTERTAINING!
When I think of summertime baby showers and birthday celebrations, I think of family and friends gathering in a casual, relaxed setting to laugh and just have fun.
Food that is unfussy, comforting, rustic, and maybe even quirky is typically involved. A grazing board is the perfect fit, because you can choose tasty watermelon-themed foods and serve them in a way that people can help themselves and come back for more. The absolute easiest way to entertain!
FOR MY WATERMELON SWEETS & TREATS BOARD I USED THE FOLLOWING:
Over the past few weeks I've been baking up a storm getting ready for a "What A Melon" baby shower, and it's been so much fun trying new recipes and finding so many watermelon-themed candies and treats! I buy my "watermelon seeds" (Chocolate Covered Sunflower Seeds) in bulk because I love using them on so many things for summertime baking - cookies, cupcakes and watermelon cakes - they are also pretty good just for munching on plain.
We're looking forward to celebrating a "One In A Melon" first birthday next year as well!
So many smiles when I served this - everyone loved the summertime flavor and watermelon treats!
The secret of a great sweet & treats board is to find your favorites treats – and to have a few surprises! The goal is to assemble a board filled with texture and color that fits with your theme.
For my Watermelon Sweets & Treats Board, I used a loving mix of some homemade treats and some store-bought items too. Mix and match your favorites for something wonderful and unique every time – whether you’re making it for a sweet “One In A Melon” birthday party or shower, or as a treat to enjoy for a summertime celebration! Pick your favorites and HAVE FUN!
