Adorable Vintage Ice Cream Party in Bloom

I am so excited to share this adorable party submitted by Virginie of That Cute Little Cake.  Virginie's blog is fully of super creative craft ideas and adorable DIYs.  If you haven't visited That Cute Little Cake make sure to hop on over.  What I love most about the blog is how Virginie shares several projects leading up to the party.  You really get a sense of all the creativity that goes into the final product. 

Virginie writes, "I wanted a theme that would be fun for all our little 3 year old guests and since my daughter loves ice cream, an ice cream parlour just made perfect sense ! I chose a vintage theme and based all the printables on an old English roses design in soft blues and pinks. "

Our little parlour was complete with doily wrapped waffle cones, pretty rose tubs, a choice of sprinkles and sauces, meringues, ice cream cake pops and of course the traditional chocolate flakes ! The children received play money in their lunch boxes so they could buy themselves some ice cream. This was a huge hit and they loved walking up to the parlour to place their orders ! We played traditional games of knock the cans over, pin the cherry on the ice cream and throw the bean bags. Prizes included mini chocolate ice creams. The little treat bags were displayed on a wire frame. 

I made fabric flowers to embellish the lunch boxes and all the girls wore them during the party which was ever so cute ! At the end of the party, the children went home with a pot of homemade chocolate ice cream as favour. "

I love how Virginie covered the ice cream cups and wooden spoons to match the party.  A huge thank you to That Cute Little Cake for sharing this party with us.
