lemonade stand 12.1

Ammon’s been wanting to have a lemonade stand all Summer. I kept putting him off but told him during the yard sale would be the perfect time to have one. Only one problem, I was so busy getting the yard sale ready that I totally forgot. Well, he didn’t! So the night before the yard sale, at about 11:30 pm, I was frantically making the banner like he instructed me.

He said he wanted triangles cut out of the fabric I make curtains from. I cut them out of drop cloth using pinking shears. They measure 6″ x 8″.

Then he wanted blue letters painted on the pendants with the price of the lemonade on one. After that he was done with his instructions.

I secured the pendants to the rope with clothes pins.

It turned out exactly like he wanted.

The lemonade stand was a great success. He sold lemonade, bottled water, and cookies. Zach helped him for a bit too. People were lining up and it got pretty busy for a while.

This is super cute! I’ve seen a couple of lemonade stands lately and this is one of the best I’ve seen. :-)

I never would have thought to pair a lemonade stand with a yard sale – what a fantastic idea! I love the banner :)
