The heat is officially on, and what's better than a refreshing and sweet Vintage Ice Cream & Candy Party to keep us all cooled down this Summer?! As my eldest breaks off for the summer holidays, we decided to throw an ice cream and candy mini-party to celebrate the end of his first year at school!!
Ice cream, candy and summertime - Hot summer days in Sourthern france! :)
Vintage items mixed in with colourful, sweet designs
I used some cute little jars (here) to hold the sprinkles and all the toppings.Some of the cupcakes were wrapped in the matching cupcake wrappers from the printable collection , and some were served in vintage ice cream glasses, with a scoop (or two) of ice cream and a cherry on the top (from our cherry trees)!
The décor was like a vintage Ice Cream Parlour or Ice Cream "Bar" with yellow gingham table cloth, cute retro bunting, yummy ice cream cones, sweet and fizzy sprinkles, chocolate chip cupcakes, sweet treats and looooads of candy!
To complete the décor, I "sprinkled" around the table the Vintage Ice Cream and Candy party icons (lollipops, candy and ice cream) and cupcake toppers to embellish the yummy ice creams! They looked sooooo cute and really made the party décor come together! :)
The candy jars were embellished with the fancy labels and with the round party tags from the Vintage Ice Cream & Candy Party Collection. These round party tags are so versatile, you can use them as cupcake toppers, gift tags, favor tags, candy jar labels, to embellish napkin rings, your party hats, invite envelopes and thank you cards etc, etc.
The ice cream toppings jars and fancy labels
Just use a vintage cooler box or similar if you set up the party outside to avoid ice cream melt-down! :)
