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!
Starting off with these FREE printables:

Love these MINI tissue balls – only 12.5cm!
This theme is the perfect excuse to set out a cute drinks table and use mini bottles and colourful straws. Here are some items perfect for this theme:
Love love love these PLASTIC milk bottles which come with lids as well. Perfect for smaller children!:

Complete a retro look with this straw dispenser:
You can’t have a lemonade stand party without drink dispensers! Either hire some or buy some of these lovely ones:
This lovely white tray would be perfect filled with your little bottles:
Also love these square tins for this theme…fill them with some lemons perhaps and use as a prop?:

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:
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:
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:
Get your birthday boy/girl a fun apron to wear as they serve some lemonade! Love these waterproof ones:
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:
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!
Some lovely props for this theme:
Chalkboards really suit a vintage feel for this theme:
Leave these suitcases open and fill them with bottles, cups, lemons, straws or just use them as risers under your drink dispensers perhaps?
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!

As we enter the warmer months and garden parties are being planned I thought I’d do a post on a Bee theme which is lovely for the outdoors.
This is cute for boys or girls, baby showers or even for mixed gender twins birthdays! The most common colour scheme seen is yellow/black/white but you could incorporates blues or pinks, or perhaps add some green for a garden feel.
