Driving around in the Summer, you can’t go too far without seeing a lemonade stand with kids offering up cups to quench the thirst of passersby. It’s a staple for many a childhood and most of us probably set one up as a kid. It’s what inspired this Summer collab, and together a group of us had a great time sipping, eating, and spending some quality grown-up time together as we shot the photos. Just because we’re not kids anymore doesn’t mean we can’t still have some fun and put a grown-up twist on this Summer classic, right? The fact that we used alcohol helped make it especially grown-up. One of the girls attending said that there are Colorado liquor stores that deliver alcohol straight to your door which sounded great, however, we would have to look at something closer to home to get what we needed for this party.
We took things a step further than the classic lemonade stand and added some lemony treats and a grown-up lemonade mimosa to accompany the classic drink, plus added some pretty details to finish this lemonade stand-themed party. The stand was made from upcycled pallets and is as simple as it gets to make (note: also a fun excuse to use a hammer and tools 😉 ), and the rest of the furniture we used was from my thrifting adventures.
For decorations we went with pops of pinks and yellows to build on the lemonade theme- think the classic + pink lemonade- included fresh flowers to add a grown-up feel, and fun decor like the pink ‘party’ balloon and flamingo ring toss (I had been eyeing up the flamingos at the dollar store all Summer and thought this was the perfect excuse to finally buy them). This theme would be perfect for any number of celebrations, and easy to adapt to set up indoors (ahem, pallet bar anyone?). Just grab some lemons, a splash of vodka, and a party straw and sink in for some citrusy party fun with friends. Hope you like this idea for your next party!
