Nothing says summer like a cold glass of lemonade, complete with childhood memories of setting up a stand in the neighbourhood. And I’m not sour about it, but I don’t recall the lemonade stands of my childhood looking quite as put together as these.
A lemonade stand may be a quintessential childhood experience, but its charm lends well to all kinds of parties – from weddings and showers (both bridal and baby) to backyard barbecues and kid’s birthday parties. Here are a few that has us thirsting for more.
One Charming Party
Ever the hostesses with the mostest, the girls at One Charming Party have created the ultimate step-by-step guide to setting up a lemonade stand that will have the neighbourhood kids (and adults too!) abuzz. The addition of lime green and turquoise to the colour palette is so fresh we can almost taste it. Don’t miss their free printable signs!
La Belle Parties
Cookies are one thing, but the amazing lemonade-themed dessert and candy spread take this stand to a sweet new level. The bold and bright modern paper goods are balanced with a squeeze of nostalgia via the mason jar glasses, wide pitchers, wooden crates and gingham tablecloth. See more delicious details at La Belle Parties.
Beyond the Stand

Times sure have changed, but I must say, I love these takes on lemonade stands. I was already thinking to myself now how would I do it. Kim, I just love your site. It’s all so fresh and with a little baby, you still have not dropped your spark. You are one of my favorites. I nearly click to every one of your posts.
