lemonade in the shade


Just recently I was invited to the baby shower event of the year!  The party planning was impeccable!  Complete eye candy!  The details were perfected by many very creative ladies and from one I was able find out how it was all brought together….

“Maria has been an extra older sister of mine for as long as I can remember. I squealed with delight when I found out I was going to be an ‘auntie’! I am sure anyone who knows Maria would agree with me that she is a special kind of friend. The best kind of friend really. One that is always there for you and who is thoughtful, generous and loyal. I was so excited for the opportunity to throw her a baby shower to show her how much she means to me.

Just like the one-of-a-kind friend she is, she also is one-of-a-kind in style and taste. I had strict instructions that pastels and rattles were not to be seen anywhere, which was totally fine by me! Since Baby Siegel was to be a Summer baby and Maria had mentioned that she would love lemonade to be on the menu, (not to mention that time was running out and I desperately needed a theme to get me inspired), I decided to take lemons and run with it. It turned out to be so much fun!

Teal, Bright Yellow and Orange were the colors of choice and from the lemons took over every detail. From the delicious homemade lemon curd party favors, and lemon meringue tarts (made by Maria’s sister-in-law and friend), to the lemon tablecloths and the fresh squeezed lemonade stand – it was the perfect summer party!”
