Ice Cream Social


So excited about finally posting the ICE CREAM & CHERRIES PARTY I styled a few weeks ago. This party has been long in the making. I randomly found a vintage Ice Cream Truck for sale months and months ago. She was old and needed a lot of work, but, I bought her anyway. I couldn't pass her up. I envisioned the cutest party at her side. After a few months of scrubbing, cleaning and painting she became new again. Isn't she adorable? I just love her.

Kori Clark of Paper & Pigtails designed the cutest ice cream printables for the party {exclusively for Kara's Party Ideas} which I am now passing along to you for FREE here!

Custom cake ordered from Macy's {told my lovely friend there what I wanted and she worked her magic}. It was exactly what I envisioned....

Wow Kara! You didn't miss a trick! The party looked so darling - so creative - and that truck! OMGosh! It's perfect for so many things! You need to use it as a "stork" truck for your next baby show...delivering milk to the new mom! And really, if you put a red ball on the front and antlers on the roof, it could be Rudolph at your Christmas party! In other words, I want to see this truck again and again! xo, Nan
