A Lemonade Stand Birthday Party

Remember those lemonade stand party invitations I shared last month? 
Well the party finally came along.  

And the party wouldn't be complete without a lemonade stand.
The hubs was kind enough to build this lemonade stand for us.  I've seen so many cute ones for sale, but all with a huge price tag.  
Mine cost $5.  Woo hoo!  
The bottom portion is a part of a cabinet from the "as is" section of Ikea for $5.  That's the spot to go!  


The frame around it was made with scrap wood we already had.
I put chalkboard paper on the front so we could personalize her stand.


 
Down the sides of the stand I added a string of these cute paper lemons from Wendolonia
The banner across the front was made front paint chips (gotta love paint chips) and doilies strung together with yellow baker's twine.

That super cute personalized lemonade stand tank she is wearing is from Cotton Laundry

We served regular and pink lemonade.  Guests could garnish their drinks with lemons, strawberries, or raspberries.   The drink wouldn't be complete without a pink or yellow striped straw.

The birthday girl loved serving lemonade to her guests.

The little guests took home small pails with goodies including pink lemonade gumballs.


The gumballs are in pretzel bags with a paint chip top.  The pink lemonade circle was a printable at Funkytime

These lemonade recipe cards came from Funkytime as well.

My mom made this adorable fruit salad.  She packaged it up to match the party decor.
{Thanks Mom!}


We had a small sweet table.  
Since the party was at a park, this was easier than having a cake to cut and melting ice cream.

This candy jar I made HERE and just added the lemonade gumballs.

I made the cupcake toppers to coordinate with the invitations.



The birthday girl had a blast.
