Thirsty?

On Sunday afternoon, in the 95 degree heat, my kids and I hosted a lemonade stand.
We offered lemonade (of course), lemon cupcakes with chocolate frosting, brownies and sugar cookies. We had friends stop by and kids enjoyed receiving "tips" from appreciative customers.
I used the adorable Lemonade Stand kit from Paper & Cake to impress the neighbors. They really seemed to enjoy the straw tags. When the kids handed over the glass of lemonade and they saw the straw tag, the kids got a tip.

I did have them wear $5 aprons that I purchased at Smart n' Final but Chasen took his off :(

Here is Skyler and Molly enjoying our drive up service.

I'm sure we will have another stand before the end of summer. By Tuesday, it is supposed to be 102 (but it is always hotter) but the weekend should cool off to the mid 80s (fingers crossed!).
Have a great week and stay cool!

How cute! Love this idea. So just what does a glass of lemonade and a cupcake cost these days?

Joanne, we charged .50 for each item. There were 2 sugar cookies per bag, everything else was a single.

My kids did a lemonade stand once but it was never as swish as this one. Absolutely gorgeous!
