summer up: ice cream social.
oh, what is it about summer that just screams for ice cream? maybe it’s that childhood nostalgia beckoning us when we hear the chimes of an ice cream truck nearing our neighborhood. don’t get me wrong, i love ice cream any time of the year, but when it’s hot out it seems almost instinctual to crave a lovely cool cone of it. i thought it would be fun to see what it might look like to have an ice cream tasting party — complete with all my favorite flavors, sprinkle toppings, and of course cones.
i gathered up some pretty white ice cream dishes and bowls in various sizes and some serving trays and an ice cream scoop and served out some pretty pastel-colored flavors. then i served up a few scoops with some pretty pastel cookies and waffles — yum! i am pretty happy with the results! ever had an ice cream party? a sundae party with loads of toppings and whipped cream would be delicious too, and not as expected as say, cakes and pies. i scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream.
