The best ideas for hosting a modern and fun One in a Melon 1st Birthday Party.

One in a Melon is a modern and fun theme for celebrating your child’s 1st birthday.

I’ve pulled together some of my favorite ideas for having a Watermelon themed birthday party.  Shopping small is so important to me as a consumer and business owner, so all of the ideas featured below are in my local St. Louis metro area.


“One in a Melon” Watermelon Birthday Invitations are an adorable birthday theme. You can choose from professionally printed invitations or a digital file as the starting point for styling the party.


My favorite party planning tip is to host during a non-meal time (like 3pm) and only serve sweet treats and light snacks.

This adorable Watermelon Cake from Kaylin Jones Cupcakes is the perfect centerpiece for the food table. It would also be a super cute 1st birthday smash cake.

The Watermelon Cookies from Debbie’s Cookie Creations are an easy and delicious sweet snack for party guests of all ages. Add fresh fruit, tea, and lemonade and the snack table is ready.


I love planning and hosting birthday parties, but as a busy mom I don’t want to spend a ton of time decorating. I use the invitation theme throughout the party for decorations – it’s easy to pull together and looks cohesive.

My favorite “decoration” I include for all of the kids’ parties I plan is a Milestone Board. I love documenting the milestones and favorites of one year olds – they change so much in a year!

The Watermelon High Chair Banner and One in a Melon Cake Topper from Dearheart Creations are simple additions to the decor and look great in pictures.


No party is complete without the perfect party outfit.

The Watermelon Bows from Gem&Lo’s Bows coordinate with the invitation design (bonus – I personally buy all of my daughter’s bows from her). 

I love the Watermelon Shorts from Daffodils & Cotton – colorful, fun, and perfect for a fruit themed party. (I’ve had the opportunity to work with Daffodils & Cotton for a few years and she’s amazing!)


Don’t forget to thank guests for celebrating with you with Watermelon Thank You Cards and Thanks a Melon Favor Stickers.

The cards and stickers are available in my shop – professionally printed and shipped to your door.
