I am so excited to share the very creative talent of Renee of THE CREATIVE ORCHARD…so excited that today is going to be a double feature!  Renee’s attention to detail and her creative craftiness combine to make the cutest parties.  I love this Watermelon Picnic Party!

This picnic table was set up to welcome the guests as they arrived- and the balloons set the tone right away!

Renee creates all of the printable party decorations herself!

 Love the pinwheels…

And look at the adorable fans!

The food was perfect for a picnic…

Love the cupcakes…

LOVE the Jello Pops!

Renee offers a “how to” lesson to make the watermelon napkins- she didn’t sew a stitch!

Renee thought of everything!  Look how cute the ants are carrying the food.  Renee made each of the food props that the ants are carrying.  She used styrofoam, felt, fabric, buttons, and hot glue.  The mini parade flags and mints for each guest are also such a great touch.

As a party favor, each guest was given a glass jar with fresh melon balls…

Fun and beautiful, Renee!!
