I had a little “fruity” party at my house this weekend. It was just something simple and fun for some of my friends to come over and chat. I only did a little decorating, and a lot of it I just used what I had. We’re renting and not in the nicest place for having people over, but I’ve decided that that isn’t what is important. If I wait until I have what I think is a perfect place for entertaining, then it would be a long time or maybe it would never happen. So I’m going to enjoy where I am living and where I am in life. Anyway, I have two free printables for YOU that my sister made and go along with the “fruity” theme.

"One in a MELON" Party with Free Printables


We sat outside because the evening was nice and we have space for more people. We had lots of mismatched chairs that provided just enough seating. I kept most of the food inside to keep it safe from bugs. For a backdrop I put up the poster “You’re one in a MELON” with some pear lights from Ikea and some felt balls. I’m totally saving this poster and using it for my baby’s first birthday party!

I served sliced watermelon, Sour Patch Fruits (affiliate link)Sour Patch Strawberries (affiliate link)and some orange-flavored tea cakes that my husband made. (He’s an amazing baker!) Outside I had some water and some Wonka Runts (affiliate link). I had pink and green napkins, pink plates, and pink plastic utensils.

I printed the “One in a MELON” poster as a engineer print at a nearby Fedex Office. It printed 36″x36″ which is huge and awesome, and I only paid $10. I can’t guarantee that price at any other place, but printing an engineering print is definitely the cheapest option for something that big. My print came out somewhat striped which I think is from the printer. I don’t mind it though and kind of like how it looks.

If you want to send a special card or thank you card, my sister also made it into a fold-over card. It’s super cute, and I can’t wait to use it! (She blogs at Ensign Insights and also sells hand lettered prints.)
