Vintage Lemonade Stand

 I am in love with lemonade stands... remember I posted about having one here in April 2010 and another one here in July 2011. Now I see them everywhere! I finally had a chance to make a lemonade stand a reality! Can you believe that lemonade stand was free? Well, almost...it came from a free palette of wood with a few free scraps of wood from Home Depot. (All you have to do is go to the wood section and ask if they have any wood scraps and they will give them to you! You will be amazed at the scraps you can get!) The cost was nails and paint for the word Lemonade! LOVE!
 I actually had most of the props for the lemonade stand. I wanted a vintage lemonade stand so pulled out my vintage Coke and RC bottles for holding flowers.
 I love my vintage scale. I found this one at a yard sale for only $5!
 I took small Mason jars and filled with lemon heads. I didn't have any fabric on hand to match so just cut a red and white striped treat bag and tied with twine.
 I love Coke so I have a lot of stuff associated with my addiction! I have this Coca-Cola crate that I use for so many things. Here I am using it to hold newspaper treat cones that I made with Dollar Tree party hats
 I have a few of these chalkboard stands that I have left over from Madison's Art Party 2 years ago. You can see it here.
 I have used this Radio Flyer wagon for so many things! I got it ...yep you guessed it at a yard sale!

 I used yellow duct tape to make the flags for the straws. I love using what I have on hand!


Found this metal stool on clearance at Hobby Lobby for $10. I knew it would be perfect. It was black but a quick fix with yellow spray paint. 
Vintage Lemonade stand was ready for a little photo shoot with Madison and her friends! They are so adorable!
