"Ice cream is happiness condensed." ~ Jessi Lane Adams
We celebrated Emma's 8th birthday with an old-fashioned ice cream party a few weeks ago, and I have to admit, this was one of our easiest themes to date. But it was also one of our most enjoyable. Our schedules are so full now with work, school, church, and extra-curricular activities that it makes sense to simplify our celebrations. It is difficult for me to let go of grand ideas for taking our parties "over the top," but I have discovered that Joe and the kids don't miss those details at all. I did not prepare any food for this party, which allowed me to focus on making the printables and decorating our tables. The Ice Cream Parlor party collection from hello love designs gave me the soft palette and vintage charm I was looking for. Here is a peek into Emma's Ice Cream Parlor.
I will be dishing about our ice cream in my next post, so stop by for a scoop of fun!
