4th of July Ice Cream Social

4th of July means parades, time with family, trips out of town or just wanting to relax at home.  With most people being busy on the 4th of July weekend I decided to have some friends over the weekend before for a Patriotic Ice Cream Social. 

Painting Paris Pink's invitation set the tone for the party. My friend even came to the party in red, white and blue docksider's. I love when my friends dress in the theme of the party. 
Just like your favorite frozen yogurt place,the table was set with a variety of toppings.
Greyson Designs paper medallions and Fancy and Fold's stars made for a fun backdrop.
For anyone who wanted to make a float or just needed a drink to wash the ice cream down with, 4th of July straws were dressed up with paper stars.

Ice cream containers 

Star dishes found at Fred Meyer 

Gumballs by SweetWorks and mason jars by Always the Occasion  

Paper stars by Fancy & Fold 

Goodwill is a great place to get ice cream sundae glasses at a much lower price. I got all mine there.

Mochi on ice cream is so good. Look for it at your local Asian grocery. I got mine at Uwajima.

Add a little fun to your wooden spoons by drawing fireworks on them.
Sparkler party favors were dressed up with ribbon and paper stars.
Remove ribbon and paper star before lighting the sparkler
