lemonade {bridal shower}

I love how simple a theme this lemonade shower was and how very cute it turned out!
This was another church shower so I planned with a "committee" and my friend, Danielle, hosted at her home.




This tray was from a set of 3 that was a birthday gift from a friend. 
All the flowers were picked from local back yards... and front yards!




The lemons in the jar were real, but the one sitting out was a cute ceramic lemon I found, just recently, at Target.




The garland was my favorite part for sure! I resized a free printable I found online and then even printed a pink chevron on the back side (sorry, I have no pictures of that side)! I used my 2" hole punch for easy cutting and then sewed the lemons together at different heights on the lemon to create the slightly uneven look I was going for! Then, I just got a few yards of the pink pom poms and the yellow zig zags. Watch out! I'm pulling out the intense technical terms now!! ;)




I also loved the sliced lemons in this vase/pitcher... however, they were not so easy to do. 

For this success, I found a cylinder vase that just fits into the pitcher and I was able to do one side with lemon slices- by holding the vase on it's side, laying out lemon slices and then carefully inserting the cylinder vase. Took me waaay to long to figure that out, but it sure is a cute end result!




Now for the actual lemonade! Which of course, I didn't take a picture after we filled the dispensers with regular and pink lemonade... but I think you'll get the idea.

The lemonade sign was inspired by the adorable letter stickers from Hobby Lobby. Which I then layered scrapbook paper, added ribbon, ribbon holes and a few cute flower stickers I had on hand to snazzy it up.






All the lilacs smelled wonderful!




I printed the lemon printable on white sticker sheets and used my 2" hole punch just like for the garland. The straws I had from a party store in Houston... they were too cute to pass up when I saw them last year!




The food table was super cute as well!




bacon ranch cheese ball and crackers




Above and below are the other 2 cute trays from my 3 tray set 
{a gift to me, but from Sam's Club originally}




Girl Scout "lemonade" cookies and the invite from this Etsy shop.




Chocolate coated oreos on a stick, sitting in lemon heads... can you say adorable? :)




Mini chicken salad cups... yummy and pretty!




And pinwheels to complete the snack foods for out 2pm shower!






Here's my pinterest board for more ideas.

I could really use a tall glass of ice cold lemonade about now...
