Melissa B By Melissa B  in Birthday


Party Recap

This was a lot of fun! I tried to pull in other colors to be a little different, and I got a lot of the stuff throughout last summer as it went on clearance, the lemonade stand added to the party, but it was a great source of entertainment and play for the kids, using a non-breakable lemonade jug.


Party Highlights

  • Desserts

    Lemon filled tartlettes with fresh fruit and apricot glaze, pink lemonade cupcakes, birthday cake, and birthday cake ice cream!

  • Activities / Games

    The lemonade stand was a great activity for the kids, and I used a non-breakable lemonade jug and paper cups for this reason.
