Watermelon Themed Picnic Signs

Picnics are a big family outing on weekends, so chances are you won't be alone in your outdoor space. By crafting a few themed party signs, you'll help guests find where they're supposed to be more easily. 


Watermelons definitely come to mind when thinking about picnics, so why not create a summery watermelon sign to direct your guests?

Create a fun graphic for the signs that represents your party theme. Our watermelon invitation from Pear Tree Greetings inspired a trail of watermelon signs leading to the family picnic area. You can also use the signs to help define your area at the park.

Follow these simple instructions for a sweet summery watermelon sign for your next picnic!
