If anyone wanted to throw a watermelon party here was an idea. I’m so excited you love it so much. And links are always welcome! You are so sweet to ask! But I would love to see it when it is all done (ha ha even if it is 9 months from now)

    Hi! The one in a melon poster printable link is not working for me! I love it for my daughters first birthday!! Would you be willing to email the printables to me?? Or let me know if there is a different link to use now?? Thank you so much! Blaiirlucas@icloud.com ☺️

    Hi Blair! Oh gosh I am so sorry! I will look into this :) xoxo

    Kimberly Hopkins

    Hi! I have been planning my daughter’s 1st birthday for a few months and would LOVE to print the “one in a melon” poster to add to the party decor! The link isn’t working for me. Would you be willing to send it to me? krhopkins@gmail.com Thank you so much!

    Hi Kimberly! That is so weird! It’s working on my end. Ill email you though :)

    Veronica Mendenhall

    I would love the link for the large print but the link is not working for me either. Can you email it to me too? mendenhallveronica@gmail.com Thank you!

    Jenna Kimerling

    I’m trying to recreate your watermelon garland, but I’m confused about how you actually “sew” the semi-circles together. Do you actually use a needed and thread the baker’s twine through each piece, or did you just tape the twin to the backs?

    Oh Jenna I never saw this comment I’m so so sorry!! I sewed it with a sewing machine actually. If you don’t have a sewing machine I would think gluing it to bakers twine might be the next easiest rather than sewing it by hand? Let me know if you have any other questions :)

    Jenna Kimerling

    That’s okay! I really appreciate you responding when you did see it! I am actually just about to start “sewing” the watermelons, so it was perfect timing :)

    I can’t sew to save my life, so I’m going to try to tape the twine first. If tape doesn’t hold I’ll glue them together . . .

    I will definitely let you know if I have any more questions. Or if this turns out to be a disaster ;)

    Rachel Caporale

    LOVE the printable but having lots of trouble downloading it. could you possibly email to me as well? Thank you so much!

    Hi Rachel! So sorry, I am so confused why it’s not working for so many! Try this link, ill email it as well :) http://www.radandhappy.com/blog/2015/6/29/one-in-a-melon-party-with-free-printables


    Hi there – would love to know where you found the fabric for the table cloth! Thanks!

    Hi Caitlin :)

    The table cloth is just a plain white cotton one I bought from Target and then I painted dashes on it with black paint
