I am actually not going to be in the United States for the 4th of July. That doesn’t mean we haven’t been celebrating around my house already. I have a couple of little cuties that are coming to visit that will enjoy any chance to indulge in ice cream! I took over the bar in our tavern room and draped a new red and white check scatter rug across it. I added a couple of tiered trays and was ready to get to work! This fun little ice cream cart sign I picked up from At Home was the inspiration for my little gathering!A tiered tray is perfect for this kind of display where guests can help themselves to their choice of icy treats! French vanilla ice cream was scooped ahead of time and placed in frosty sundae dishes. The top tray features fun bomb pop themed glasses, each with their own bomb pop popsicle inside! The other end of the bar featured a chippy white tiered display stand. The red white and blue ice cream containers are from Michael’s. One holds red-handled spoons, one holds pirouette cookies and on the top is a fun “peppermint sundae” made from carnations! Toppings included chopped nuts, toffee chips, mini Me & M’s and a variety of sprinkles along with some Hershey’s Sundae Dream chocolate syrup. For basic cone lovers, I provided both sugar cones and wafer cones offered up in red baskets lined with parchment paper.
I have some ice cream sandwich lovers coming to my house! Dress up your store-bought ice cream sandwiches by tapping each edge into colorful sprinkles. Sundae lovers had the fun of topping their ice cream any way that they wanted! It is looking yummy! Have you ever hosted a sundae bar? It is so much fun!
