Lemon party - just a fun party or something indecent?

Anonim

Lemon party - something bright, summer, sunny, juicy? Or is there a second meaning behind this phrase? Let's say right away: yes and no. In this article we will explain how to decorate your holiday in the "lemon" style. And in the end we dig up an ancient meme from the depths of the Internet, because of which the innocent phrase “lemon party” in America at one time acquired a double meaning.

Lemonade

Lemons, water, sugar - the base, without which it can not do. And then there is an endless space for experiments: grapefruit, pineapple, watermelon, raspberry, mango, strawberry, cucumber, mint, rosemary, lavender - you can add almost any fruits, berries, herbs and even vegetables to the lemonade.

For example, lemonade with coconut: original and tasty. All you need is to add 1 cup of lemon juice, 1 cup of coconut milk cream, two glasses of ice and half a glass of water to the blender. Beat 1 minute to achieve a frothy consistency. Decorate with coconut flakes and lemon zest.

If you have a lemon party 18+, then in all variations of lemonade you can easily add alcohol - rum, vodka, gin or tequila.

The main thing - gently reach out the lemon pulp and do not throw away the skins. We still need them for making original candles.

Lemon party: in wheelbarrows, in barrels, in boxes - even more lemons!

Lemons - the fruits themselves are very interior. They are just enough to put somewhere, and it will already be beautiful, festive and stylish. But if you spend a little time, you can make a little more intricate decor items for your lemon party.

Wreath

We will need:

  • A ring of sufficiently large diameter from any materials: plastic, wire, etc. The main thing is that the design is strong enough, the lemons are still quite heavy.
  • Ribbon dark green.
  • Artificial leaves.
  • Lots of lemons of various sizes. It would be great if you manage to find very small citrus fruits, but usually these are not sold here.
  • Scissors.
  • Glue gun.

Steps:

  • Wrap the ring with tape so that the base is completely hidden.
  • Using glue gun place lemons. At the very beginning it is important to determine for yourself whether citruses will be placed chaotically or in a certain direction, as shown in the picture. Everything is to your taste - and so, and so it will come out beautifully.
  • Glue artificial leaves.
  • Tie a cord or ribbon.

Such a wreath will look great on the front door, telling your guests that they are definitely not mistaken with the address.

Lemon and Lavender Candles

We have already used lemon pulp for lemonade, but candles can be made from the skins, which not only look beautiful and original, but also fill your home with a fresh and exquisite aroma.

For 4 candles we will need:

  • 1 cup of paraffin or wax;
  • lavender oil;
  • dried lavender;
  • 2 large lemons;
  • 4 candle wicks;
  • food coloring (optional);
  • glass jar, suitable for use in the microwave;
  • knife and spoon to extract the pulp.

Steps:

  • Cut the lemons in half and extract the pulp with a spoon.
  • Put paraffin into the jar and put it in the microwave until it is completely dissolved. We recommend using a can, which is not a pity to throw away, since it will be very problematic to wash it.
  • Add paraffin dry lavender, a few drops of lavender oil and a dye (optional). Mix well.
  • Inside the lemon rinds we place the wicks and gently pour the resulting paraffin mass. It is important to ensure that the crusts do not turn over.
  • Leave to dry.

As promised - a double sense

So what indecent can be in the words "lemon party"?

At the beginning of the two thousandth, a site appeared in the English segment of the Internet, consisting of a single photograph of not very, aesthetically pleasing, aesthetically and morally pleasing content. This picture was issued for a long time in search results on request in English "lemon party" (that is, lemon party).

At one time, the meme was quite popular among internet trolls for a hint of homosexual relationships between older people. At the moment, due to the prescription of years, this meme has long been buried in the depths of the Internet, and only the ancient “sofa veterans”, who are unlikely to meet among your friends, remember it.

So feel free to organize breathtakingly bright, fresh, summer and juicy lemon parties for your friends. The yellow color and the smell of citruses will cheer up on the grayest day and will not leave anyone indifferent.
