A Lemon and Lime Birthday Party

Inspiration can strike in the most unexpected places. In early August, I had started to think of ideas for my husband's birthday. I thought I would host a lunch with some close family. Very grown up.
Of course, one thing led to another and before I knew it, I was thinking of colour schemes, cake recipes and decorations. I don't like to do things half heartedly as you may have guessed :)
It so happened that I was in my local Sainsbury's when all these thoughts were running around in my head. And there, I found my colour scheme in the fruit aisle -gorgeous yellow lemons and vivid green limes were staring at me, tempting me to think how beautiful these two colours would look when put together for a party. Fresh, zingy and vibrant.
 I bought some lemons on impulse and put them all in my lovely green hurricane vase as soon as I got in. There it was, my inspiration in a vase...
More details about the party itself soon. But in the meantime, how gorgeous are the pictures below? I am loving the tall vases with the lemons and limes in them.
