If garlands are not your style, you can opt for a balloon bouquet. You can use the same type and color of balloons as the garland. However, there will be fewer balloons in each bouquet. This will allow you to put the balloons in more spots; you can place them near the food, gifts, important tables, and so on.

3. Decorative Citruses for Your Centerpiece

If you want a simple yet versatile piece of decor, consider buying some packs of decorative citruses. These packs of decorative fruits are widely available, and they come in variations that include lemons and limes.

There are plenty of ways you can incorporate these fake fruits into your lemonade theme bridal shower. Firstly, you can use them to fill vases of different sizes and shapes. Alternatively, you can put them in crates or baskets. These containers will make for great centerpieces.

You can get as creative as you want. You can lay the fruits down on fake grass and add DIY greenery. You can create miniature trees and hang the lemons and limes. There is nothing impossible in the world of DIY.

4. Lemonade Balloons

Another option for balloon decorations is to buy balloons that spell the word “lemonade.” These balloons are a perfect addition to your backdrop or the food bar.

5. Lemonade Stand
