I loved it I loved it I loved it. The weather was perfect, the lawn and garden lovely, and the lemon-y goodness abundant. There was a group going by that asked what our reason for the event was.
I used a lot of what I had so the cost could be minimal-- pitchers, vases, grandma's china, etc.
I made lemon curd for all the girls to take home.
We also had some yummy candy and these lovely hair/bag flowers that my friend Jenna made.
I wanted balloons scattered throughout--and I loved the sense of whimsy that they added. Sitting on quilts was extra fun, too.
I think everyone loved the strawberry lemonade the best;)
One of my favorite details! My sister and I thrifted for pillow cases and fabric to make the napkins (she made them;) Then we added tags that spelled LEMON in different languages.
We needed some savory with so much lemon--so Cortney made these to die for snacks (saltines, bacon and parmesan baked) Who would have thought?
I used sheets for all the tablecloths--and I fell in love with this soft yellow floral the moment I saw it at the thrift store.
I used the matching pillowcase in the middle of the "take home table." Best part? This sheet set is definitely going in a future guest room!
