With dainty doilies and a whole lot of strawberries, Melissa of Buckets of Grace styled this unbelievably cute Vintage Strawberry Ice Cream Social for her neighborhoods’ 3rd annual ice cream get-together. I love the vintage crates & palette board decor combined with the super sweet strawberry printables by Dimple Prints !
PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:
– Ice cream toppings in doily lined berry baskets
– Ruffled burlap table linens, palette board backdrop and wooden crate risers
– Strawberry plants in mason jars + Daisies in Berry Baskets
– Strawberry shortcakes in mason jars and cupcakes with doily liners in mini garden pots
PARTY DETAILS, as told by Melissa…
We hosted our 3rd annual neighborhood ice cream social. Our neighborhood has started a tradition of holding an ice cream social on the Friday of the week that school ends. It’s a great way to reaquaint yourself with your neighbors – especially where we live where the winters are long and cold!
This year’s theme was strawberries and cream. Unfortunately, the Spring weather did not cooperate and the strawberries were not ready for picking in time for the party so we had to do a little improvising.
Each neighbor brought their favorite topping and I supplied the ice cream and the strawberries and cream treats. While the weather was perfect for the party, the sun was beating on my front porch where the ice cream and treat tables were set up. Sun doesn’t make for great pictures.
It was a great party, the kids had a great time staying up, having a camp fire and lighting off fireworks. We are looking forward to next year!
The printables were designed by Carli of Dimple Prints and could not have been more perfect! The tied the party together by giving it a market/vintage feel. The burlap, doily and natural elements were perfect!
