Lemons to Lemonade

A dear friend is moving to another city and a group of us want to throw her a farewell soiree.  Although the move will be good career wise, she is very sad to go.  So, the key is to make the party uplifting and not a somber goodbye.  She'll be back in two years!  I came up with the idea to base the party around the saying, "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade."  That statement could not be more fitting for her situation!  Although she is upset about the move, she will have to make the best out of the situation.  Here is an inspiration board to help my friends and I start planning...

Bright and sunny cocktail bar planned by Keely Thorne Events
Gorgeous yellow rose centerpiece by Bergner & Johnson
