I love all things watermelon - and Mothers' Day was the perfect day for a barbecue and watermelon - all kinds of watermelon.
I once painted my mailbox to look like a slice of watermelon
And I made a watermelon welcome sign
That cute paper plate holder and napkin holder was a birthday gift this year from my sweet friend Karen - stop by and visit her blog - you'll love it!!
My little metal flower fairy likes picnics - and watermelons too
A watermelon napkin holder
And sunflower napkins too - she sends very nice birthday presents.
The beginning of the table setting for Mothers' Day
The watermelon paper plate holder is perfect for this party.
We did potluck for lunch with our daughters and their families - so much good food
We all brought fruit - so a big fruit salad was the result
I hollowed out a small round watermelon to make a serving bowl - I really do like watermelons
I made the watermelon napkin rings - they are plastic canvas needlepoint. The napkins are from a thrift store in Mt. Vernon, WA. It was a wonderful day - and to top it off
Lego Brownies - easy to make. You need brownies (insert your favorite recipe here), gel food colors (to get those brilliant colors) and M&M candies. Cut the brownies into squares or rectangles when they are cool. Mix frostings to match the M&M colors, frost and stick on the candies and you have Brownie Legos - sure to delight any little boy! These were enjoy by the Grandsons, and the rest of us had a few bites ourselves.
