Lemon Theme Birthday Party
How to Decorate a Lemon Birthday cake?
A lemon themed birthday cake can easily be made with a stacked round cake. Place two 8-inch round cakes on top of each other with a layer of frosting in between. Make a batch of white and lemon-yellow buttercream frosting and place them into frosting bags. Using a star tip, place stars covering the entire cake in yellow frosting. Using a round piping tip and white frosting make the white lines to create the illusion that i looks like the cut section of a lemon.
What to wear to a birthday party in summer?
For a kids birthday in the summer, place the children in lightweight clothing, that you are okay with getting a bit dirty. Kids will be running around, playing in the dirt and perhaps even a playground. You don’t want them to worry about getting their nice clothes dirty. If it is a pool party, cloth them in a swimsuit with a cover-up over top. You don’t want to send to many extra clothes to a pool party, especially if the kids are dropped off without a parent. It is too easy for clothing to get lost or forgotten.
Where to have a summer birthday party?
For a kids’ summer birthday, there are so many cheap or free places to have a birthday party. My favorite place to a summer birthday is at our local park. There is a nice playground, with a small pavilion and tables. And it is free! It is first come first serve, so I usually send someone in the family to sit there earlier in the day to save our spot. The kids can play on the playset and then come into the pavilion to eat and play a few small games that I have prepared beforehand.
Another great spot is in your backyard. Kids can run around, get out some sprinklers, or have a water balloon fight. It is the perfect spot for a hot summer birthday and is a cheap party location. The best part about having the party in your backyard is you don’t have to drag all the party supplies all over town. And if you forget anything, just run inside the house and grab it.
A pool or beach is also a good way to entertain a group of kids at a birthday party. This option makes me a bit nervous, unless you invite the parents as well, because that is alot of kids to watch and keep safe while swimming. Most kids love swimming and very few activities have to planned for this type of party.
How to invite classmates to summer birthday party?
Check to see if your school puts together a student directory. My kids school asks permission to add your phone number/address into a student directory that is sent to parents for this reason.
