Do a search for “pink lemonade 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.
Anna’s pink lemonade party – The Burrus Family Blog
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.
See my Pinterest board for this theme for some more ideas!
Hope you enjoy this post!

You can find other vendors in various locations which have similar canopies for hire such as Wild Rose Sweets and Styling (Newcastle/Hunter region in NSW), Sweet Boutique Lolly Buffets (Canberra), Your Style Dessert and Buffet tableware hire (Ipswich, QLD) and many more on the Directory here.
These sweet yellow chairs for HIRE would also look fantastic for this theme:

Or dress your birthday girl in a sweet pink and yellow outfit:

Pink and lemon party hat – Little Miss Charlie’s Treasures
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 – and of course use them around your home after the party!
White ladder shelf – Mocka
You can also hire a similar ladder shelf as well as a butlers tray (along with a drink dispenser, bottles etc) from Utterly Organised Events in Melbourne. Browse the hire category for other vendors in your location.
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! Or as mentioned above – hire one!
Butlers table – Lifestyle Home & Living

Wooden soda crate – The Little Big Company
