It’s been years since I last set up a lemonade stand in the front yard and drank cup after cup of that tart sweetness with the neighborhood kids while waiting to make our fortune, one dime at a time.

Now that I’m all grown up, I’ve been thinking about making a lemonade stand for my next summer party.  I found this great lemonade pitcher and lemon squeezer at HomeGoods, and the next thing I knew I was checking out ideas for grown-up lemonade stands online. You won’t believe what great ideas I found!

I love this backyard lemonade bar I found by Giggles Galore. I think Mariah’s addition of garnishes is a great idea, not to mention the lemon squares to serve with it.

Isn’t this lemony-lime drink station I spotted over at Between Naps on the Porch so cool and inviting? Susan picked up this beverage server at HomeGoods and as usual, she found a creative and beautiful way to use it.

This lemonade stand from Catch My Party would be wonderful for a bridal or baby shower or even a birthday party. I think the bunting makes it extra special.

Pop Sugar shared a great set up for an indoor drink station for a party. I like it so much I might want one of these set up in the house all year round.

Of course, no lemonade stand would be complete without a great-tasting lemonade, so here a few sweet recipes I found:

1. Susie from Return to Sunday Supper shares an old fashioned Southern classic lemonade recipe here.

And it doesn’t get easier than this ready-made pink lemonade Christy found at her local HomeGoods. She added some raspberry vodka and a few other things to make a “Pink Lady” cocktail. You can find her complete recipe, here. This is an adult-only lemonade drink, but the kids can drink straight from the bottle!

So, have you set up your own lemonade stand this summer? You’ll find everything you need at HomeGoods to make yours memorable!
