You may remember my little homage to the lovely lemon a while back. Using lemons in decor was sort of lingering in the back of my mind so I decided to dust it off and use it for a little get together I had at my house on Saturday.
A friend let me borrow these yellow candlesticks and oversized footed jars which helped make it super easy to dress up living room and kitchen.
I picked up some yellow roses at the deli to make one special arrangement for the coffee table. I guess kitty doesn't approve.
I made some rum spiked lemonade along with yellow cocktail umbrellas. (Thank you Martha)
It was surprisingly easy to keep the yellow theme going. I didn't realize how many little things are yellow - like cheese.
And I broke out the beehive cake mold to serve a lemon honey dessert. It was my first attempt at making a cake from scratch but it was really very yummy. I admit, I cheated on the frosting and used duncan hines :)
While I probably won't get to use the all out lemon theme again, it was a really easy one to decorate with and the bright yellow really went a long way. Not quite as good as having loads of flowers but a lot easier and cheaper so it was worth the trade off.
Hope you're weekends were as sunny. On to the dreaded workweek :(
