Ice Cream Social Baby Shower

The Foster Fotography Studio was transformed into an array of pastel colored bows and linens over the weekend for an intimate gathering of family and friends to celebrate the upcoming arrival of Baby Ryder Jaxon Sambuco during an ice cream social themed event.  

The table linens, chair covers, and sashes came from Chairital Bliss, a renter of fine fabrics for any of life's memorable events, owned by Abby Bunch.  

The other table details were the brain child of the event planning crew, Carly Givens, Cathy Givens, and Dawna Foster.

The red cooler came from my Aunt Cathy Givens and proved to be a nice vintage detail for holding the vintage glass Pepsi and Mt. Dew bottles and water.

The ingenuity of the Givens never ceases to amaze me.  This old fashioned ice cream stand set up was created from scratch and can be credited to the event planners, Carly and Cathy Givens.

As you can see not even the smallest detail was overlooked when planning the ice cream bar.  

What ice cream bar would be complete without the good stuff to top it all off?  Our toppings included fruit, candy, crushed cookies, sprinkles, nuts, fudge and even gummy bears!

For the centerpieces we used glass sundae cups with 5 scoops of carnations in green, yellow, and white, and completed the look with a striped paper straw.

For favors, each guest's seat had 1 ice cream cone with a thank you tag and a one scoop of a shower loofa in a wide variety of colors.

Staying true to the vintage ice cream social theme our menu consisted of hotdogs served up in a vintage hotdog machine and other picnic foods. 

Perhaps the most challenging detail were the fabric ice cream cones that hung in the windows.  The event planners really put in the work creating those little guys.  What was perceived to be an easy task proved to be the greatest decorating challenge but one that was worth it.
