Lemons Lemons Lemons

Okay, so I don't want to go ahead and say I'm having a LEMON themed wedding... but I'm kind of having a lemon themed wedding.  I don't want to go overboard, but there are so many cool ways that I've seen to incorporate lemons into the wedding decorations.  So, here are some favorites!!
A cool way to do table numbers.  I don't think that this would work because I want to do mason jars with chalk for the centerpieces... but maybe these can go on the desert table?  Or even as centerpieces on the wedding party table!

A possibility for a "signature drink" for the wedding.  If we don't do an open bar we'll at least have two or three drinks that we have available for everyone, so here's one that looks very yellow and lemony and also sounds delicious!
• 1 oz. Vodka
• ½ oz. Lemon juice
• 1 packet (or 1 tsp) of sugar
• 3 oz. Lemon lime soda
• Extra sugar for dipping
• Sliced lemon for garnis

So this isn't exactly "lemon" related, but here is a really cool black white and yellow candy bar.  Guests would get paper bags on their way out and could take some candy to go!

Another candy bar type of idea.  It would be for people who would rather have coffee and cookies than cake (or cupcakes like we're doing).  I like the look of the candy lemons on a black stand!!

This looks MUCH better than just putting whole lemons in a vase.  I think I would do two or three of these on a table, with a few small flower arrangements.  Also, these could go inside of mason jars rather than a big vase (or the flowers could go in the mason jars!)

Just another cute desert/coffee/candy table setting!!

These two are both the same things.  It's a lemon, hollowed out, filled with a cherry parfait (or on the bottom it looks like ice cream).  I like that the top one doesn't have the lemon rind peeled off so it's even more yellow, but the bottom looks prettier without the whipped cream.

 A very very yellow lemonade stand.  I think it looks so cool that they're put on top of bricks, and I like the cups they're in as well.  I just think the drink itself might be too yellow... like maybe it look like pee??  lol

These are lemon drop candies, for the tables, with people's name cards in them.  I'm not sure if people would stick their hands in and eat them though, so it might not make sense.

These are lemon marmalades!  I think it would make a really cool wedding gift and would also look great on the tables, maybe with a black and white patterned fabric on top, and a label that says our wedding date!
