Ellie's Lemonade Stand officially opened for business on Lemonade Day 2014! Ellie's strategy in raising money for her charitable causes (Orphan Outreach and Lost & Found Pets of Lubbock) was to expand her sales to include not only Lemonade, but delicious baked goods as well.
What People Ate
The bake shop offerings included some fabulous desserts: Chocolate chip cookies, Triple Lemon baby (cup) cakes, and Chocolate chip cookie dough brownies!
What People Drank
Pink Lemonade was offered in addition to the traditional lemonade! Yellow chevron cups featured Lemonade decorated stickers! As an added bonus for her customers, Ellie provided yellow straws with "Yummy" straw flags! An alternative beverage option included bottled water with specially designed labels.
This young fundraiser was fashionably dressed in a lemon designed skirt and adorable t-shirt featuring a little girl's lemonade stand as her logo. Ellie and her assistants all wore name tags designed especially for them.
Lemonade Stand Design
The Lemonade Stand was quite eye-catching with yellow and white wooden slats and overhead signage "Ellie's Lemonade." Brightly colored flower leis added interest. Pink polka dots and yellow stripes were design elements that framed the adorable vintage lemonade stand images.
Location and advertising are keys to success! Banners and balloons helped to attract attention to this fundraiser. Lemonade pricing signs printed in bold designs and a colorful pennant style banner completed the stand decorations.
