Lemonade Stand Birthday (12 photos)
For my daughter's first birthday party, my husband built a lemonade stand I sewed a canopy. We had vintage props, like the kids painted chairs and crates to hold accessories on the food table.
To get their lemonade kids had to "pay" with wooden coins, which were made to match with the party's colors.
To keep things simple and sweet, I hand wrote signs, which were displayed with lemons. It was a beautiful day, but we were prepared for unseasonably hot weather, so we made fans that say "Margot's Lemonade Stand" for guests to use and take with them.
We decided on a pink velvet sprinkle cake, which we had made at a local bakery, and also lemonade sammies, which were just divine.
I used a sugar cookie recipe and colored and layered the dough to create the pink and white stripes. (Recipe from Sprinkle Bakes).
We also had a snack station, where guests could scoops their own snacks into sweet bags.
For goodie bags, guests brought home an assortment of party favors, including magnets that say "When life hands you lemons, make lemonade!"
