Summer On A Tray Blog Tour - Watermelon Theme

Hello friends, welcome to another tray blog tour. This one is a tray designed for Summer on A Tray. There are 14 bloggers who have created Summer On A Tray. There are lots of ideas for summer trays/ Relax and be sure to visit each blogger to see their fun creations.

If you are arriving from Katherine's Corner, welcome! Katherine always does a great job organizing these fun tray tours. 
Summer on a Tray can be any tray, whether it's a single tray, a tiered ray and more. It  is always fun to see the creativity of each blogger.  Have fun and get inspired to create your own tray.

I decided to create a watermelon tray.  What's better than a piece of iced cold watermelon on a hot summer day. I thought poolside would be a fun post, especially since we are having some very hot summer days.
Life is sweet!
For my tray I am using my Frontgate Weston Wine & Charcuterie Caddy. You can add wine bottles, wine glasses or just use it with the included boards for your snacks like I did.😀

I found these cute watermelon drink holders at Michaels plus the darling watermelon placemats, So perfect for summer fun. The watermelon cups are also a Michaels find. Summertime sippin.
Using our pool for a backdrop makes a lovely setting for some watermelon fun. 

How about a watermelon popsicle?  I created these fun shaped watermelon popsicles cut from a cute cutter I found on Amazon. I added them to my Summer on a Tray.

Watermelon has immune boosting vitamins of A,B-6 and C.  Watermelon is 92% water.  Early explores used watermelons as canteens. Watermelon is a relative of pumpkins and cucumbers. It has a greater concentration of lycopene compared to tomatoes. 

With the watermelon I purchased, I created a floral arrangement made with  hydrangea, carnations, yellow roses and greenery.

Watermelon sangria.  So many possibilities.

Ice cold slide of watermelon is such a treat! Go ahead and create your own Summer tray.  Use what you have for a tray and get creative. There is no need to buy anything. Plate chargers, large platters will work beautifully.
Be sure to continue the blog tour by visiting Mantel and Table to see how she created "Summer On A Try." Many thanks to Katherine for organizing this fun blog tour.
