My Daughter Halle LOVES Pink Lemonade, so we thought it would be fun to throw her a Pink Lemonade Party for her 9th Birthday!! She help me design our Pink Lemonade Printable Pack, she had lots of input on what she wanted and the colors and patterns she liked. So it made party planning super fun to have her involved :-) ( she is a little Mini ME! LOL) First we choose the color pallet she wanted a bright yellow, light pink and then a raspberry/hot pink colors. Once we have the color pallet down it was ready to design… We stuck with simple patterns, polka dots, chevrons, & gingham’s.
Once the printables we done we started planning the funnest part of all, the Dessert Table!! I made the the cake ( I am not a pro, never take a cake class) So dont look too close! LOL I just try and do my kids cakes for there parties. I stuck with a simple yet cute cake. we did the bottom layer with all white fondant and them I bought some pink ric rac ribbon to dress up the all white layer. I wanted to do Chevron on the bottom but the ribbon was a quicker and easier solution and still gave a cute look. then we went with solid yellow with white polka dots for the middle layer to match her printables and for the top layer all pink fondant with a hot pink ric rac ribbon wrapped around the bottom ad we topped off our cake using the cutest lemon cookie and I had no idea what I was going to put on the top until I got my cookies from ICINGS BY ANG and I new right then that the adorable Cookie that say’s Halle’s Pink Lemonade Stand would top off my cake perfectly!!
The week of the party when the goodies started to arrive it’s the funnest to get packages filled with fun matching desserts!! Our Pink Lemonade cookies from Icings by Ang were absolutely perfect for our dessert table. So many cute designs that matched our printables. Her art work on the cookies is AMAZING. We then ordered some cute pink and lemon macarons from the Splendid Sweet Shoppe. I also ordered some chocolate covered oreo’s from HowSweetItIsByMeliss she sent us a variety of the colors and they were topped with cute sixlets. perfect for the dessert table and a great size for the favor boxes too. As for cupcakes I had many ideas so we ended up doing 3 different styles of cupcakes… they were all Pink Lemonade cupcakes but we decorated them different. We started off with out simple yet cute Printable cupcake toppers & wrappers, personalized with her name and age. second we had seen them on pinterest is the pink lemonade cupcakes made to look like a drink topped with a short paper straw and a sliced lemon. and last for the cupcakes we bought fondant cupcake toppers from FondantFantasy I came across them on Etsy and I knew I had to have them in our pinks and yellow colors. They came and they were even cuter in real, the colors were perfect and the little designs were perfect for our last few cupcakes! We made candy kabobs for my youngest daughters birthday a while back and my daughter really wanted us to make them for her party this time… So I bought lots of different pinks and yellow candies and we create the cute pink lemonade candy kabobs, they were a Huge hit with all the kids! for table fillers I made some cute Lemon Parfaits using lemon pudding and cool whip, they are fast simple and cheap and we topped them off with some sixlets. I also did the mini and standard candy bars using out printables. we also did the hersheys kiss’s in a bowl and topped with our Printables. Along with some lemon candies to finish up the desert table.
We used our white ruffle table clothe from SewWhatGrandma. We used a pink pintuck table clothe as our backdrop and strung our printable pendant flags on each side of the center piece. For our backdrop I did the painted white frame with our big Lemons Printable in the middle.. I can’t take all the credit as I have been loving all of Sweetly Chic Events Dessert tables lately and they have did the frame in the middle of there backdrops and it always looks so good and is a good finishing touch to the party, so thanks Sweetly Chic Events for the cute Idea :-)
For my daughters outfit we just went with a yellow ruffle skirt and a white tank top from Hanna Anderson and we topped it off with an adorable Pink Lemonade Bubblegum Necklace & matching Shabby Chic Headband from Girly Girlz Boutique.
