ice cream social

Two weeks ago we hosted a party after my daughter's baptism. As I mentioned, we had a good old fashioned ice cream social. It was a huge hit. It was so fun to see all of my relatives making delicious sundaes. We ended up going with Brigham's and they did an amazing job. We had six flavors of ice cream, hot fudge, butterscotch, strawberry sauce, oreos, reese's, m+m's, heath bar, jimmies, walnuts, whipped cream and cherries. All for a little over $200 for 5o people. Not a bad deal at all.

I made tissue paper poms and little tent card labels for all of the fixings. We were lucky to have an absolutely gorgeous day. In all honesty, as a full-time working mom of two I probably took on a bit too much by inviting so many people. I was down to the wire and quite stressed but in the end I truly enjoyed visiting with everyone. What a joyous occasion!
