Labor Day Festivities

Tuesday, September 7, 2010

Yesterday we had a lemonade stand at my house.  Well, actually, it was a dinner with a lemonade stand theme.  My mom loves to entertain and really wanted to try out this theme by Paper & Cake Printable Partywear.  We first saw it over at and if you have not poked around on either of these two blogs then you are in for a treat.  Stop by (and be prepared to be amazed ~ the creative minds featured on there are high class!)

Anyways, my mom got the printable party kit online and went to town! 

This was our dessert table, minus the lemonade ice-cream cones.  The lemonade ice-cream I like to make is so simple!!!  It's just one container of vanilla ice-cream (softened) and one container of thawed lemonade concentrate.  Refreeze in (two) graham cracker crusts or back in the ice-cream container for cones.  You can't see the delicious Carmel brownies that my brother & sister-in law brought or the darling containers that held the lemon zest popcorn very well, but trust me when I say that we had quite the assortment of goodies.

Dinner was great too, but somehow we got side-tracked and forgot to take pictures of the food (it's easy how that happens huh?)

On the menu was:
(and unfortunately, we omitted our tweaked version of the  
due to time, but everything was delicious!)

We had a great time playing Kooky Croquet and just being together as a family...
