Pink Lemonade, anyone???

My daughter loves Pinkalicious, and when we found the book, Pinkalicious and the Pink Drink, I suggested to her to have a Pink Lemonade birthday party.  She got excited right away, so we made plans for the theme.

I enlisted my hubby and his love for pvc pipes to build a little awning above our kitchen table to make the lemonade stand.  The yellow is a tablecloth pinned to the ceiling and clipped to the pvc frame.  I was bummed that the window light blew out the details on the table.  I knew it would, but convinced myself to plan around it anyway…

All things pink and yellow…I made the sign on the back of my Mary had a little lamb sign.  Also made some lemon coolers with real lemons and a candy stick.  You can drink it just like that!

I love paper lanterns.  I have lots of colors.  They are re-usable, found at Hobby Lobby.

Goody bags of lemonheads and strawberry candy sticks.

I also made a lemonade cake recipe that I found online. My friend Juliet made the pink chocolate popcorn, of which my neighbor said it was the most delicious treat she’d had in a while.  Let me also add that the only thing purchased for this party was the check fabric (Wal-mart $5 a yard), paper goods, and the food/candy.  Everything else I had on hand!  

I covered some family pics I have up in our kitchen with some pics of my girl in younger years.  The border designs can be found free at Sprik Space–I LOVE all her designs!!!!

I made strawberry cupcakes with lemon frosting and stuck what I like to call a pink lemon on top (but at the candy store, they are referred to as grapefruit chewey candies).

Once the kids arrived, they played with the balloons that were on the floor.  Nice gathering activity as we waited for others;)

My girl then read aloud her Pinkalicious book, then they played “hot lemon” (like hot potato).  First with one lemon, then with 2, then 3, then 5.  They really loved that, and we played it much longer than I planned because they enjoyed it so much.

I did recommend the girls wear pink and yellow for a fun group pic.

Her kinder teacher even made a litte appearance.  She will also be her 1st grade teacher next year.

I had my hubby snap a few shots of us…

She loves it when I twirl her like this…we need to make sure we’ve got lots of space, we have been known to take a few people out at wedding receptions.

 This last shot just makes me happy.  Shows me that she was really enjoying herself.  I love to do parties for my kids, and once a year is just not enough!
