How to throw an ice cream bridal shower :)

As a fun little rest from typical food blogging, I thought I'd show off the decorations I did for my best friend's bridal shower.

To say that Sara likes ice cream is a bit of an understatement. Take my obvious love of chocolate, change it to ice cream, and multiply it by 10. Seriously. When I visited her in grad school, we had mudslides when I got there at night, ice cream for breakfast in town, s'mores for an afternoon snack, a normal dinner (with dessert, probably), then ice cream for breakfast the next morning. :)

So, naturally, I always envisioned an ice cream bridal shower for her.

Ice cream cookie cutter favors:

Dressed up with stamped labels and cupcake ribbon from Michaels:

Shower invitations (name smeared out for internet safety!) I made with help from Design-her Gals. An ice cream cone accessory = freaking awesome.

Ice cream sundae glasses with peony "ice cream" and long sundae spoons from Williams-Sonoma several years ago. (The handles are imprinted with ice cream, gelato, sorbet, and sherbet.)

How I set up the entry table. Note the ice cream favors in their own sundae glasses, pink M&Ms from Michaels in sundae glasses with the long spoons again, and a framed invitation (the mat was the cute polka dot wrapping paper I found at A.C. Moore that reminded me of ice cream!).

Sara even got ice cream lingerie and this cute apron! And one of my gifts was this from C&B.

A good shot of the table set up for dessert. Among other things, ice cream cone cupcakes (friend made), ice cream bonbons from Trader Joe's (in cupcake mini muffin paper liners from Michaels), and the rest of the "ice cream" peonies and ice cream scoops between the flower arrangements for extra emphasis... just incase you haven't caught on yet.

Happy shower, Sara!!

Pleased to know about this information on bridal shower event. Couple of months ago, arranged my brother’s engagement party at one of lovely wedding venues Los Angeles. Had decorated the venue in a grand fashion.
