Sherbet & Spice Birthday

Sometimes the simplest concepts make the cutest designs, and that is the case with this back yard ice cream birthday party seen on The City Cradle.  With the repeated use of circles, a few DIY projects, and some clever food/drink paper wraps, this is a delight for the eyes! 
A hand-crafted ‘chandelier’ of felt circles hangs over the cake, along with banners of circles strung across the yard…575 tiny circles to be exact!   A fun teepee was made using sticks and a thrifted bed ruffle.  I’m not sure which I love more, the teepee, or the DIY ice cream/sherbet stand.   The stand served up a variety of frozen treats along with toppings displayed in a vintage model ferris wheel – so cute! 
An easy to do tip is to wrap your juice boxes and other food items in coordinating papers, and tie it off with string or ribbon.  These wraps are available for download here, and would work with any girly party.   There were also handmade kites as favors, hanging along the wall.  To see all the details for this party visit Part 1 and Part 2 on The City Cradle.

    it's such a clever idea to put veggies in little cups – far more appealing!

    This party is just amazingly cute! The labels on the juice boxes are killing me… not to mention the ice cream bars! How did they pull that off without them melting all over? Truly stunning details.

    Thanks for all your very sweet comments & thanks for the feature Chris!

    Erin, to answer you- we had a cooler out under the table and a real life "ice cream man" that stood behind the table to serve the guests as they ordered.
