Lemonade and Watermelon

Spring and Summer are full of bright colors that seem to pop off the rich green backgrounds and one combo I've been inspired by is the Lemonade and Watermelon color palettes.  Bright pinks paired with yellows are eye catching and seem to fit so well into the season, so I've found a few design and fashion ideas channeling this color combo I just can't seem to resist.

 And this post wouldn't be complete without a Watermelon Lemonade drink recipe!
Watermelon Lemonade
Yields: 12 servings

Sugar Syrup:
2 cups water
2 cups sugar
2 cups water
2 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
4 cups ice cubes
2 cups diced watermelon
Mixed diced fruit of your choice (such as apples, pears or strawberries)
1 orange, preferably organic, sliced into rounds
1 lemon, preferably organic, sliced into rounds
1 lime, preferably organic, sliced into rounds
To make sugar syrup: Combine the water and sugar in a medium saucepan. Turn the heat to medium-high and boil for 10 minutes. If you are planning to make the lemonade immediately, place 2 cups of the sugar water in the freezer or refrigerator while you do the rest of the prep. (The recipe makes about 2 cups syrup. When stored in a tightly sealed glass jar, sugar syrup keeps indefinitely in the refrigerator).
To make the lemonade: Mix 2 cups of sugar syrup, watermelon, lemon juice, and lime juice in a big bowl or pitcher. Add the ice cubes, diced watermelon and other fruit. Add the orange, lemon, and lime rounds. Stir well and chill until icy cold.

So where do you find color inspirations this season?
