A scoop of ice cream always makes a celebration sweeter, but this Vintage Ice Cream Shop Party by Julia, of Let’s Have a Ball Parties and Events, is like having a triple scoop with everything on top!  Julia designed this party for her youngest daughter and hand-crafted most of the decorations, favors and yummy treats herself!  A perfect choice of a party theme on a hot summer day!

Ice cream was served from silver pails and there were lots of toppings to choose!


Julia is quite amazing with all of her craftiness!  She made the doilies party lanterns and banner along with the cake topper (made to look like the birthday girl, dress and all!), and I especially love the framed collage she made just for her baby girl…

The fabric cones and the party hat were also made by Julia!

The antique ice cream parlor chairs were a great find and Julia was thrilled to incorporate them into the party room!

Julia also set up a Favor Display with many flavorful choices for the guests!

Ice cream bubbles for all…

Bowties for the boys…

Barrettes for the girls…

And a display full of ice cream games and more…

Outdoor water games and bubbles were another welcome way to beat the heat!

Sand Art Ice Cream Cones kept little hands busy and creative…

A beautiful day and a beautiful celebration~ sweet through and though!

Being surrounded by friends and family is the best part of the day!

Thank you for sharing your gorgeous daughter’s gorgeous party!  It is fabulous!!
