Planning birthday parties for my kids brings me great joy! I love coming up with a theme and finding creative ways to party plan on a budget. For my daughter’s 5th birthday, we were inspired by Hobby Lobby’s adorable line of lemonade trinkets.
My kid’s love setting up lemonade stands and selling to the neighborhood,  plus our last name is “Lemmon”…so what could be better than a Pink Lemonade Party. I hope you enjoy what I created for this party!


Look at these adorable girls! Each guest received a pink lemonade tutu dress and lace headband. I had a difficult time finding lemon embellishments, so I cut out lemons from glitter cardstock and put them in place with spray adhesive.


Isn’t this a cute sweet treat table? I kept it simple with a white table cloth and pops of color. I used hat pins to secure a strand of lights that was embellished with pink and yellow tulle. You’ve gotta love your Cricket machine when it comes to making paper banners! Easy peesy!


This special table was created for our lemonade girls. I found a pair of old wood chairs and spray painted them Mambo Pink. Aren’t they fab? It was only a $5 transformation.


Our strawberry-flavored cupcakes were embellished with more lemons I cut from glitter card stock. I taped them to a toothpick and inserted them as the “lemon” on top.

I love galvanized buckets! I placed a platter on top in order to use it as a base for the mason jars.



For the centerpieces, I used wooden CD crates ($4.99 at Michaels) . I placed 3 large mason jars inside each crate. and added a simple bloom for color.


You know I love gluing dollar store items together… Here is a candle stick holder and mason jar acting as a straw holder.


Our gazebo housed the sweet treats station.


I made simple invitations out of striped paper and glitter card stock for each guest.


Of course I had to wear my pink lemonade hat to the party! 🙂


After the party, the birthday girl stayed with the theme wearing her Carter’s brand Pjs from Kohl’s!
