What’s pink and yellow and striped all over? Josie and Teresa’s joint Lemonade & Lollipop Shoppe birthday party! Jenny of Bloom Designs Online not only designed the printables and took the photos, but she made all the delicious looking desserts too – all to match this super cute theme mixing sour and sweet! (P.S. Does this “Shoppe” look familiar? It was repainted from this party!)
PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:
- Giant yellow & white cake topped with a yellow swirl lollipop + mini cakes for each birthday girl
- Lemon meringue shots with pink studded rhinestone spoons
- Layered lemonade cookie stacks displayed on a bed of yellow sprinkles
- “Lemonade and Lollipop Shoppe” dessert stand with striped wood paneling & fabulous fabric garland
PARTY DETAILS, as told by Jenny…
This Lemonade and Lollipops Birthday Party was created for twins, Josie and Teresa, who were tuning eleven. The hosts wanted the party to be fun and fresh so what better theme than lemonade and lollipops!
The focal point of the party was a lemonade stand. I had built a farm stand from a tutorial on Lil Luna for a previous party (apple of my eye) and decided to repaint it in this party’s lemon yellow and hot pink color scheme. The stand was filled with lemon desserts including pink lemonade cupcakes decorated with a gumball lollipops, lemon pudding pots, lemon meringue shots, and lemonade cookie stacks. Guests could also treat themselves to mini donuts, salt-water taffy, lemon heads and of course, lollipops. Each twin had their own cake, so that they could blow out their own candles. Huge 36” balloons lined the backyard.
Playing off of the neighborhood lemonade stand feel of the dessert table, Josie’s mom set up traditional yard games including Frisbee golf, volleyball and a bubble table. Kids were also treated to air brushed tattoos! The most popular activity by far was karaoke. The girls loved showing off their moves and singing talent. Guests took home tubes of gum balls in pink and yellow. For the printables, I used a bold yellow and white stripe with hot pink printing and lollipops.
