Pink Lemonade Party


When my DIL told me she was doing Pink Lemonade theme for Millie's 2nd birthday, I was pretty excited.  So girly!!  When you have raised three ugly handsome boys, it is such a treat to have little girl parties.



When we have parties, it is usually a family affair.  It is very nice to take advantage of the talents you have.  Saves you lots of money!  Also, through out the post I have linked to tutorials so that you can know how to make your own.

My SIL made the banner with her Cricut.  I just love that machine!! I need to use mine more often! For a lovely accent, we added tissue balls.  We also hung tissue balls from the ceiling.


My SIL also made these cute fan decorations to hang.  

A real easy accent to your table is a jar filled with Lemon Heads.  I found the lemon heads at the Dollar Tree (5 boxes for $1) and the jar at Big Lots for $6.  To match the theme, I hot glued a piece of material to the lid. (what is nice, the material peels right off when you are done. I will be able to use my jar again.)


A very popular item is cake pops! My MIL and neice made Lemon and Strawberry Cake Pops! They were beyond yummy!



For the kids, and big kids, I did matching Funfetti Cupcakes.  With a icing tip, you can make your cupcakes look bakery bought!



I also made yummy Snickerdoodles!  To match the theme, I rolled them in yellow and pick sugar crystals.  They were perfect!



I made the tiers to display all the goodies.  It was very easy!! From the dollar store you get glass candle holders and spray paint them your desired color.  I found the yellow plastic plates at Big Lot.  That saved me lots of time! You could spray paint the plates too.  Then you glue them together with E6000 or Goop.  Both work well. 






  
I just love this saying! This sign was perfect! You can find it here.



My MIL, the baker extraordinaire, made the cake.  Then my SIL help put the final touches with the Chevron stripes.  My SIL also made the cake topper with her Cricut machine.  The glitter card stock and diamond embellishments were perfect!







Our little princess was very excited about her party!!
