A fruity theme is always popular in Summer…and there has been many a bright tutti frutti party showcased online – so for this summery setup for the 3rd issue of Celebrating Little One’s e-magazine , stylists Mooi. Co decided on more of a pastel colour scheme with fruits of lemons, and limes and other summery fruits.
The result is a delightful setup with a relaxed table for the kids, lemonade stand and dessert table filled with desserts inspired by summery fruits! I love the mix of colours of yellows, peach, mint green and pinks for a fruity kids party theme!

Besides the obvious perks of long days at the beach, swimming and ice cream, the Summer months lend themselves to lots of opportunities for occasions to be enjoyed outdoors, and lots of bright party themes too!
With an abundance of colour on display, the tropical tutti frutti party has grown in popularity and for all kinds of occasions, and for good reason! So here’s our fun finds and inspiration to make a splash and go a little bananas with fruit for your next party.

Summer fruits really do speak for themselves when it comes to colour, so go bananas and splash as much colour around as you like for a tropical fruit salad vibe, or lots of shades of the one or two colours if crushing on just one, such as watermelon.
