You might not think planning a theme party is the best solution when life seems to be making things difficult, but isn't that the BEST reason? Theme parties are happy occasions - they let us enjoy the company of favorite people, drink lots of fun theme named cocktails, and create playlists to fit the feel - for no reason whatsoever.
Lemons provide lots of theme party inspiration, especially where the signature drinks and party menu is concerned. Check out our gallery filled with lemon-inspired theme party ideas to turn those lemons you have on hand into a party that will put life in a better mood.
We've got three ideas to inspire. Whether you opt to go with a classic yellow look, a pink lemonade approach or a summertime soirre styled event, we've got the jumping off point for you to organize your menu ideas, decor and of course, drinks!
Classic Yellow Ideas
Decor: When it comes to theme party decor for this party there are a lot of options. Bright yellow accents are obvious choices - sunflowers and yellow dishware or linens are easy decor ideas that are also affordable.
Cocktail: Add some spice to your lemonade cocktail to concoct a signature Cajun sip. We're big fans of this drink since it packs the heat and sweet, but is also affordable for a party crowd.
Summer Stand Inspired
Decor: Look around during the summer and you're sure to spot some kiddies with a lemonade stand. Use the ramshackle glam look of a DIY stand to inspire a backyard affair that's casual and pretty in it's informal look.
Cocktail: When you've got a crowd nothing works better than a punch. This berry lemonade punch recipe was originally concocted for a 4th of July BBQ, but with a heafty splash of vodka and a bit of limencello it's a big ol' cocktail ready to go for a summer soiree of any kind.
Menu: Take advantage of the backyard summer feel of this theme idea and make a menu that's all about fresh, citrus food. This fresh salad works with our cocktail choice, is easy to make, and it works well paired with grilled fish or chicken.
Pink Lemonade Theme
Decor: If it's just the ladies you're calling over to help turn life's frown upside down, consider going with a fresh pink lemonade inspired party. A table dressed in pretty pink shades and delicate feminine embellishments will make you all relax and smile.
Cocktail: If you ask us, lemonade is only enhanced when you add lots of vodka and twizzlers. If you agree, try turning your lemons into this cocktail.
Menu: These cupcakes are literally infused with lemonade mix and are a proven hit. They're some of our most popular cupcakes and for good reason - they're sweet, sour, tangy and fresh. Make yours yellow if you'd like by replacing the pink mix with a classic one.
