So excited about finally posting the ICE CREAM & CHERRIES PARTY I styled a few weeks ago. This party has been long in the making. I randomly found a vintage Ice Cream Truck for sale months and months ago. She was old and needed a lot of work, but, I bought her anyway. I couldn’t pass her up. I envisioned the cutest party at her side. After a few months of scrubbing, cleaning and painting she became new again. Isn’t she adorable? I just love her.

Some cute ideas and elements to look for in this ice cream social summer celebration are:

  • The vintage ice cream truck backdrop
  • The ice cream cone cake
  • The melted ice cream cone cupcakes
  • The ice cream sugar cookies
  • The ziplock bag ice cream activity / recipe
  • The vintage cash register
  • The FREE ice cream party printables
  • The ice cream cone cake pops
  • And MORE!

Kori Clark of Paper & Pigtails designed the cutest ice cream printables for the party {exclusively for Kara’s Party Ideas} which I am now passing along to you for FREE here!
