Ice Cream Shoppe Party


When it came to her little one’s first birthday party, mom and photographer Meegan Weaver wanted to make her child’s event one of a kind.  Because she loves ice cream so much it only made sense to throw and Ice Cream Shoppe Party to celebrate the special day.

Taking advantage of Pinterest and all sorts of DIY projects, this party had an innovative look that made it stand out.  A massive banner was made from strips of adorably patterned fabric with the birthday girl’s name spelled out on burlap flags.  A fantastic vintage style desk was used to display the ice cream treats, adding to the charm of the party while giving a unique buffet placement.  A strand of doilies adorned the front of the table in sweet fashion.  All of the snacks were specially designed to blend with the Ice Cream theme perfectly.  Tasty looking cake pop cones were beautifully decorated smooshed upside down and even had sprinkles on them.  Sugar cookies were shaped into cones and frosted in bright pink, blue and white colors to make them look like double scoop delights. Those were set on a vintage styled white tray that added to the old-school charm of this party.  A delicious looking cake stood in the center on a lovely pink cake tray, drawing the eye with its vibrant teal frosting.  It was wonderfully decorated with a cone appearing to be smashed right into the side of the cake, creating a fantastic effect.

No Ice Cream Shoppe party is complete without a stand and real ice cream though and the table had all the fixin’s waiting for the kids to create their own sweet treat. A stand was set outside in the yard so everyone could play ice cream time too, making a fantastic photo op stop as well!
