If you’re a mom, you know your child’s First Birthday is a really big deal! I mean, it’s one of the most important milestones for both the child and the parents (you survived a whole year!). If you’re brainstorming ideas for your little one’s first birthday, we have the most adorable Farmhouse Lemonade Stand themed birthday full of sunshine and fun to inspire you! Take a look at the bright and cheery party details to spark some fresh ideas for your next party or family gathering!
Lemonade Stand Party Decorations
Held at Yorba Regional Park in Yorba Linda, California, Alayn Jyn’s (or AJ for short) First Birthday Party was a fabulous celebration focusing on good food, friends and family. In a labor of love, AJ’s parents built this stunning farmhouse inspired lemonade stand which Event Planner and Designer Best Creationz styled to perfection to set the stage for the party and serve as the main photo backdrop. Complete with a custom designed sign, the lemonade stand doubled as a drink station and place for guests to grab a cup and straw!
Best Creationz also designed a custom “Lemonade” banner in soft yellows and whites that really stood out against the greens from the park and coordinated perfectly with AJ’s yellow and white high chair tassel banner.
The farmhouse feel was captured in this photo booth by stacking white washed wooden crates which added interest and cubbies for coordinated decor and flower arrangements.
And how about this swoon worthy organic balloon garland also designed by Best Creationz?! We love the yellow polka dot balloons mixed in with the whites and bits of greenery.
Lemonade Stand Party Food Ideas
The beautiful dessert table at this First Birthday really nailed the farmhouse feel and featured a custom sign that read, “AJ’s Farmers Market.” The use of wooden crates, farmhouse inspired signs in metals and glass and creatively naming the foods for things you’d find on a farm (e.g., they called the donut holes “potatoes”) brought the theme together.
AJ’s Smash Cake, homemade by her grandparents, was a simple two-layer cake topped with a strawberry, flowers and a custom First Birthday Cake Topper designed by Creative Amme. We love the simple look of the cake surrounded by fresh blueberries… it just screams fresh from the farm, doesn’t it?
The family created many other beautiful treats like muffins and homemade breads, which were coupled with scrumptious cupcakes and macarons by Baked Dessert Bar. Plus, treat bags were filled with cereal and chips to look like corn and carrots! We love the creative styling ideas too – check out the macarons placed in egg cartons!
Lemonade Party Favor Ideas
A few final details we loved from this event included the display of AJ’s monthly milestone photos and the party favors. When you host a party outdoors and at a public park, you don’t have lots of hanging space like you would inside your home, so the family displayed a year’s worth of baby pictures on this standing room divider.
Finally, party favor baskets were displayed on the outdoor grill that was first covered in the same greenery used throughout the feature tables. Guests took home a farmers market basket full of outdoor toys like bubbles and chalk – perfect for playtime at the park!
We love this fresh take on a Farmhouse Lemonade Stand for a First Birthday Party theme and hope you gathered plenty of inspiration for your next party! Be sure to Pin this post for later party planning!
