{Watermelon Berry Happy Birthday}

As we were browsing the web for a different idea for Elena's 2nd birthday, we immediately loved the watermelon strawberry theme simply because of the color palette: pink, melon and lime.  We were inspired by Whimsical Printables' Summer Party, and with the watermelon amazing graphics by Kelly Medina, I created my own design using a homemade gingham pattern, chevron and of course, polka dots.

My amazing balloon designer Johanna Padín created beautiful art in two columns and a number two with watermelon and strawberry elements.  I made the huge fabric garland hanging in the background, as well as the birthday banner on the main table.

Other items I created were the dessert tags, dessert toppers, water bottle labels, straw flags made out of the fabric instead of paper, and the lovely birthday hat for little Elena.  I also glittered up some demitasse wooden spoons from Shop Sweet Lulu.

We wanted to feature desserts as well as candy, so I ordered cake pops, brownies, strawberry parfaits, fruit salad, cheesecakes and sugar cookies. All the sweets are from Pastry Gallery, sugar cookies by my usual talented baker, Peggy Pérez and the amazing cake and cupcakes by Wanda González.
