Lemonade Party theme

Things are busy, busy, busy for me with my new children’s Party Directory website launching soon – hence why I haven’t been blogging much and won’t be able to blog too much until July when it is all launched!

However when I feel inspired about a theme – I really enjoy blogging about it – and that’s how I felt about this party theme.

Do a search for “lemonade stand party” in google or pinterest and you will find the cutest party images ever! This is such a gorgeous theme and even if you don’t style a whole party around this theme you could always incorporate a lemonade stand into another theme you are planning.

This blog post has really made me think -  WHEN can I include a lemonade stand in an upcoming celebration?!

If you are able to incorporate an actual stand into this party (and I’ve included some hire options for you and a great little number from IKEA) it makes it even more cuter! Although a sweet simple table styled well can look just as lovely!

This is the perfect party to include lovely drink dispensers, use cute mini bottles and coloured straws and bring some sunshiny yellow into your party!

Most popular colours for this party are mixing yellow with pink and/or green but for boys I would mix the yellow with grey, or blue (fantastic real party in this colour scheme under the “Real parties” section of this blog post).

You can go for a retro or vintage vibe with this party and include cute wooden crates/boxes/props for a unique look.

Hope you enjoy this post! I enjoyed putting it together!

You can’t have a lemonade stand party without drink dispensers! Either hire some or buy some of these lovely ones:

2 part drink dispenser - Leo & Bella

 

Ashley drinks dispenser - Sweet Style

 

Yorkshire jar drink dispenser

 

This lovely white tray would be perfect filled with your little bottles:

Special Theme Items

How cool is this little stand from IKEA?! It is only $20 and an easy prop to use for this party and your kids will love to play with it after the party as well. Just cover the coloured strips with coloured paper to match your colour scheme:

Children's market stand - IKEA

You can also hire a stand which you can use as a lemonade stand like this one available in Sydney from Tiny Tots Toy Hire:

Lemonade stand & props for HIRE - Tiny Tots Toy Hire (Sydney)

In PERTH try out Simply Sweet Soirees.

In MELBOURNE Utterly Organised Lolly buffets, events and hire have lots of props you could use for this theme.  I’m sure you can find something similar in other states as well or check out gumtree or ebay.

A canopy such as this one below (available for hire and you can probably find similar for hire in other states) would also look really cute for this theme with the yellow and white chairs as well:

These sweet yellow chairs for HIRE would also look fantastic for this theme:

Yellow ghost chairs for HIRE - Mini Party People (Melbourne)

 

Get your birthday boy/girl a fun apron to wear as they serve some lemonade! Love these waterproof ones:

Pink spotted waterproof apron - Max and Ella

 

These ladder shelves are so fantastic for around the house and I know when I’ve used similar ones in my parties, some of my facebook readers have asked where to buy them from. They would really suit this theme I think – fill the shelves with cups/bottles etc for your lemonade stand:

White ladder shelf - Mocka

 

A butlers tray table would also look really sweet filled with some bottles. I’m not suggesting you buy this JUST for a party – they make a great little table for around the home!

Butlers table - Lifestyle Home & Living

 

Some lovely props for this theme:

Wooden soda crate - The Little Big Company

 

Summer time wooden blocks - Fayes Attic

 

Chalkboards really suit a vintage feel for this theme:

Hanging chalk sign - Style Party Love

 

Mini Chalkboard - Bon Bon Boutique

 

Leave these suitcases open and fill them with bottles, cups, lemons, straws or just use them as risers under your drink dispensers perhaps?

Yellow paper suitcases - Bickiboo

A cute lemonade making kit:

If you want a lovely lemonade setup but don’t have all the props and want an easy (but gorgeous) option, try The Soda Stand in Sydney – they come and set a lovely drinks table for you and supply the drinks, glasses etc! I’m not sure about if a similar service is available in other states, but it is such a lovely unique idea I just had to share!

Favours & Packaging

Give the little ones some of their own juicers to make some lemonade when they get home:

Cuisena wooden citrus juicer - Belinda Janes

Or send them home with some of your own homemade lemonade using these cute bottles:

Swing Top glass bottle - The Little Big Company

 

Lemon soap favours - Crismon Hill

 

Some sweet packaging options for other sweets/treats:

There really are SO many gorgeous parties in this theme. Here are a few that really caught my eye for inspiration!:

    Hi Tanya,

    Love this post!

    You were after ideas for those that hire out similar items to the amazing Soda Stand in Sydney but in other States.

    For those in Melbourne wanting to hire the beverage dispensers, butlers tray and mini milk bottles (plastic and glass), I hire these out along with the ladder shelf through Utterly Organised Events.

    Thanks for the inspiration!
