Watermelon Delivery

I am delivering a summer time favorite at this watermelon themed table.
This is just what we need on these hot, humid summer days.

I bought these adorable watermelon plates along with the plaid chargers at the Ragon House Warehouse  sale earlier this spring.
Somehow a polka dot plate bought last year on clearance from Hobby Lobby got slipped in there just to add a little more fun.
I had no intentions of buying any cups for this table, but I walked into HomeGoods with a $10 rebate coupon and there were these plastic watermelon tumblers just marked down for their summer clearance, in my cart they went!!
This whole theme came together with inspiration from a new stamp and die set from Stampin' Up!
The new Ride with Me set includes this adorable little  3D pick up truck. In this case, my little truck is carrying a load of watermelon gummies!
These little trucks are super simple to make with the die cut and super fun to personalized each little truck.  Doreen just joined my team as a new demonstrator! I can imagine using these for a little boy's birthday party, pumpkins for Halloween and of course an evergreen tree for Christmas.
Truck loads of watermelon is what every summer gathering needs!!
I hope you are enjoying your summer!!
