It’s national watermelon day, the sun’s out in London (kind of) and it’s nearly the weekend (it’s not) – do we need any more reason to put together a collection of our favourite watermelon inspired home décor picks? I don’t think so (we probably do).
To celebrate national watermelon day, this coveted national holiday that everyone knows and looks forward to, we’ve put together 8 watermelon essentials. From prints to lights and actual culinary equipment, this list has got everything a national watermelon day celebrator will need!
National Watermelon Day: The List!
We couldn’t celebrate national watermelon day without a nod towards Baby, refusing to be put in corners since 1987.
This lovely print is available on Etsy for just £8.00. It will look wonderful topping off a stack of books (if they’re coloured coordinated to match, that’d look even better!)
Watermelon Food Storage Lid:
Is any kitchen complete without a watermelon food storage lid? We think not. This funky little number comes in two sizes and retails for £12-£14.
Not only does it look great, but it’s wonderfully versatile too. The silicone lid creates a vacuum seal on any smooth surface, preventing the food inside from drying out during storage. This means it can be used to replace cling film or tin foil to seal in heat during cooking (it’s safe up to 220°C).
If national watermelon day isn’t a huge holiday in your home (you should make it one), you can add a small ornament, like these hanging watermelons from House of Fraser, for just £7.
It’ll turn an ordinary door handle into one in a melon (we’ll see ourselves out now).
On the other hand, you could be the type of family that counts down the days until national watermelon day (don’t we all). If that’s the case, your watermelon themed party just simply won’t be complete without this handy watermelon cutter. Useful for almost nothing else, only cutting watermelons – fab!
Watermelon Keg Kit:
Taking your watermelon themed party up a notch is the Final Touch Watermelon Keg Tapping Kit from Tesco. This little beauty is innovation at its finest. And seriously, all jokes aside, this will be a wonderful show-stopper for any kind of hosting (particularly of the summer variety).
Watch this guide on YouTube of how to your watermelon into a keg and you’ll be away in no time at all.
Watermelon Scented Candle:
So far, this list has pleased the eyes and mouth, now it’s time to treat the nose too!
Fill your home with a welcoming ambience with this fragranced candle, complete with a refreshing and fruity watermelon scent. Perfect to freshen the air after a big house clean!
Watermelon Sequin Cushion:
Even Laura Ashley are excited about national watermelon day! Grab this cute throw cushion for just £15 to create a magnificent kitsch style by partnering it with more gaudy pillows.
Last, but certainly not least, are these fabulously fruit fairy lights. Light up any room this national watermelon day by switching on this twee chain.
So, there you have it, everything you need to throw the best national watermelon day themed party (minus actual watermelons, you should probably get those too).
