A Watermelon Patch Party

A Watermelon Patch Party

Looking to go down by the bay, where the watermelons grow? No need. You can bring the bay home with this easy, fun and straight-from-the-vine Watermelon Party.


1) For your watermelon patch, go to Home Depot for astroturf (we've also used it for garden-themed parties) and Costco for a bunch (we bought a dozen) of watermelons.

2) Raid the garage for hoses, rakes & gardening tools.

3) Bright green lanterns, gardening tools and green garden fence was all bought at the dollar store.

4) Watermelon-shaped bubble gum, galvanized Ikea watering cans and fake peones (from the dollar store) add fun to the table.

Seedy is sad because there are almost no watermelons left with spitting seeds!


Tools of the trade.
