“When Life Gives You Lemons” Quarantine Birthday Party
This is what Kirsty shared about the party:
“We are all experiencing a different world right now. Meeting up with friends and making plans for celebrations together has changed for the moment. However, we can still have great parties at home!
Party Mums was challenged with creating a small family celebration for a birthday girl becoming a quaran’teen’ager. We discovered the birthday girl loves lemons and everything sour-tasting. We knew right away that her party theme should be ‘when life gives you lemons, make lemonade’. It seemed like a great way to incorporate the current situation we all face and the birthday girl’s love of lemons.
Venue + Decor:
Using the enclosed garden at the family home, we set up a low level table with scatter cushions for the family to enjoy a relaxed birthday picnic. Beautiful scalloped edge tableware decorated with lemons and gold foil detail were the perfect match for the theme. A small, white drink trolley trimmed with bright yellow bunting held a drink dispenser filled with homemade lemonade and ice. Yellow and white striped paper straws adorned with mini lemon balloon details looked super cute on the trolley, along with a bespoke lemon-shaped piñata.
A vintage dressing table was used to create the main focus and backdrop for the party. The drawers were filled with mini balloons, flowers and eucalyptus all coordinating with the fresh white, lemon and green colour palette. Beautiful pin wheels in various sizes decorated the mirror and a hand made streamer garland above, added texture and movement to the display. Bespoke hand made sweet treats displayed on the dresser included mini popcorn boxes, mini chocolate bars, push pop sweet containers and lemon shaped and scalloped shaped slogan cookies. All perfectly matched to the party theme.
The final touches included giant white ’13’ balloons and a custom made t-shirt using the party slogan for the birthday girl to wear. In the end, it was an intimate family party to celebrate this birthday milestone and a quarantine afternoon picnic to remember!”
