School is out and SUMMER IS HERE! My kids are getting older and have started thinking of ways to earn money this summer. I suggested a lemonade stand and they were ALL IN! We used Mariah’s 10 Tips for a Successful Lemonade Stand as a guide to bring in some good business!
Since one of Mariah’s tips is to create massive curb appeal, I thought I’d share a few lemonade stand decoration ideas and a FREE SVG file to help you create your own bright, cheery and sure-to-be-seen lemonade stand that is sure to attract customers!
3 Ways To Make Your Lemonade Stand Pop
THE BRIGHTER THE LEMONADE STAND, THE BETTER
The brighter the better! Since you’re hoping to attract cars passing by, you want to make sure your lemonade stand is bright and colorful! I used neon yellows, pinks and greens on a white stand to really make our little business stand out. I added a colorful garland, LOTS of fresh lemons and a polka-dotted pattern to really help the stand look appealing from the street. If you don’t have an actual ‘stand’ make sure your signage is BRIGHT and hard to miss!
MAKE YOUR LEMONADE STAND SIGN LARGE & IN CHARGE
I cut my sign out with my Cricut Maker and cut the letters out in bright green card stock so they were SURE to be seen from the street. Your sign needs to be large enough for people passing by to instantly know what you are selling!
I’m offering the LEMONADE letters and paper lemons as free SVG files at the bottom of the post for those looking to replicate this lemonade stand!
MAKE SURE YOUR LEMONADE LOOKS REFRESHING!
This is the most important tip!! Ensure that the lemonade looks tasty! This is huge! How many times have you driven by a stand and seen some VERY watery lemonade in a plastic pitcher and thought to yourself, ‘hmmm……I wonder what’s in that?’
I actually suggested my kids sell a pre-purchased lemonade like Lemonade with Lime Tampico! It tastes delicious, look refreshing from the street and is guaranteed NOT make someone sick:)!
We placed the Tampico in showy Mason Jar Dispensers, added a bunch of lemons and it sold like CRAZY! Especially when we served it in a clear plastic cup with a fun colorful straw!
That’s it!! Follow those three tips and you’ll be on your way to a steady stream of business or at least a REALLY cute lemonade stand!
And I want to hear if your kids like hosting Lemonade Stands during the summer? Do you have any tips to share? I’d love to hear them! Or even better, send photos of your stands my way!
