    How about making an 'apron' for that dish soap?

    Definitely a plaque or runner with "When life gives you lemons..." Daffodils are lemony. What about small bottles of lemonade to take? Like mug rugs and bubbles, too. Or small packets of mix.
    every cloud has a silver lining but sometimes it is hard to get to the mint

    for the centerpiece you could find a large jar and fill it with lemons and put a flower arrange on the top of the jar.

    Your lemons/lemonade idea is nice. A placemat with lemons would work too with a lemon napkin.
    However, What brings ME joy is faith, family, home, hearth and music. I live in the mountains. When I go outside, I see my neighbor's lovely llamas, nearby hills and more distant mountains, all joy bringers. "I lift up my eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh even from the Lord who has made heaven and Earth."

    Joy is not the absence of pain and suffering - it is the presence of God.

    Love the lemon/lemonade theme. A lemon shaped or even lemon colored mug rug would be the perfect take away. You can also make lemonade mix (KoolAid and Sugar) with a cute fabric topper and put in a jar at each place setting.

    lemon meringue pie, lemon squares, lemon candies, there must be some kind of lemon flowers or lemon mint plants...

    You might copy the "Joy" hymns onto material and use them in placemats with nice borders; lemonade in 2 pitchers and beautiful yellow joyful flowers as the centerpiece.

Size:  715.3 KBGood Morning! Well, as promised pictures! Winner is the red tablecloth. She did old vinal records, as the placemats, hymn book and some cds. Very cute! Second place is the blude table cloth. Almond Joys! Third-hard to see with the picture, but on the tree-the tags said all the things that bring her joy, and mine. Wish I would have headed some of the great ideas given above!! I did add little tags to each mat that said "Count It All Joy, When life gives you lemons make lemonade". It was still lots of fun!Name:  mine a.jpg
