{real parties} ICE CREAM in the garden PARTY - Emily Piper

think birthday.
summer.
ice cream.
garden.
clay pots.
flowers.
tutus.
mix'em all together...
and serve yourself up an adorable
"Ice Cream Garden Party"...


it all began when Emily from Tiny Belles Boutique contacted me about designing an invite for her daughter's upcoming birthday party...

i knew it'd be an ice cream party...
it'd be in her mother's beautiful backyard garden...
& she'd be incorporating the TomKat Studios Ice Cream printables! (the invite needed to match)
it was from there i dreamed up an invitation with a cute tree & dangling ice cream cones!!
i'm SO thrilled Emily incorporated the design element from the invite into the party...
take a look:

ice cream cones dangling from a tree...

need a closer look? i mean HOW adorable are these!!??

i LOVE that Emily used mini sized tissue poms to recreate the ice cream cones. SO clever!!
(tissue pom tutorial here - just add the cone)


and don't the party printables from the TomKat Studio match perfectly??

i even like how Emily skipped the step of attaching the lollipop stick...
inserting it right into the cupcake icing saves time & money!!
(to avoid the tag from soiling, insert JUST before serving or sending home with guests.)


her use of clay pots for serving the ice cream toppings was the PERFECT choice to keep with the "garden" theme.
love the banner she attached to the potting bench too!



and my favorite picture from the party?
Emily's adorable daughter, all dressed up in a beautiful tutu...pink flower petals at her feet and a smile indicative of a VERY satisfied birthday girl!!

great job Emily...
i love what you did with the party theme -
now i'm going to have to host an ice cream party of my own -
just so i can steal your brilliant idea of the tissue pom ice cream cones *wink*
For more pictures & details, take a peek at Emily's blog!

i hope everyone else is inspired to host their own ice cream party now!!
