Lemonade Bar {Hello Summer}


Hello! It’s Mariah with Giggles Galore! I’m excited to be here with Jamielyn and celebrating summer with all of you! One of my favorite things about summer is outdoor entertaining. I love the casual get together’s, cooking on the grill, roasting marshmallows and warm summer nights. When it comes to summer entertaining my philosophy is keep it simple. Whether you are hosting a small pool party or a big backyard BBQ, summer entertaining should be stress free so you can enjoy quality time with family and friends.


Entertain in style at your next party and set-up a refreshing Lemonade Bar for guest to quench their thirst. The best part is garnishes are easy, options are limitless and everyone is happy!



To create your own Lemonade Bar set-up an area with everything guest will need to create their own refreshing beverage. Pour lemonade into a pitcher or beverage dispenser and be sure to have extra ready and on hand.



Supply drink containers for each guest and don’t forget to include pretty striped paper straws. Set out coasters, like these pretty yellow chevron coasters from A Blissful Nest for guest to use.



Provide a variety of garnishes for guest to create their favorite concoction. A few garnishes to consider are fresh berries, mint, lavender, basil, honey sticks and lemon wedges. Other options for mixers include lemon-lime soda, seltzer water, iced tea, or a scoop of lemon sorbet. Get creative and have fun.



A tart glass of lemonade goes great with sticky sweet lemon bars, the perfect ending to your summer party.



This summer beat the heat in style with a refreshing Lemonade Bar that will impress your guest and leave you plenty of time to enjoy stress free summer entertaining!
