Labor Day Watermelon Party

Labor day is a great time to try some of these recipes I found on Pinterest!

On the 4th of July, I made the Flag Cake!



 To continue with the Americana theme I also made white chocolate filled raspberries and red, white and blue strawberries.  Of course I had to make brownies too, who doesn't love a good brownie? It was so fun!


 


For labor day, I'm thinking about a watermelon theme.

This cake looks a little too vibrant, but how much fun would it be to make a Watermelon Flavored Cake?  It would be fun to use cookie cutters and cut shapes into Watermelon 'Cookies'.  I'm also looking at Whatta Melon Pops from Family Fun, made from sorbet blended with mini chocolate chips.  There are some simpler, real fruit pops that look healthy:Watermelon Pops.

I suppose if I had all the time in the world, it would be fun to create a whole Watermelon Party.  Sadly, my children have all grown up, so I have to be contented with playing on Pinterest.  Check out my Patriotic Party Ideas. 

Then you can glance at my Homeschool Pinterest Boards, and pretend like you weren't just daydreaming!

Do you have any fun Pinterest party dreams or successes?

Lee,
Love the cake, but even more surprising to me is to see the plate you had the desserts on. I have that same Currier & Ives set of dishes (dinner plates, bowls, saucers, etc.) My grandmother gave it to me when I was first married (35 years ago) and we still are using it for our everyday dishes. I love it! Do you have the full set?
Have a wonder-filled Labor Day!
