Cherry Sundae Social Inspiration Collection:
On the inspiration board below you will notice examples of what inspired my own Cherry Sundae Social. It all began when I saw Michael Miller's adorable "Ice Cream Sundaes" fabric on Etsy. I was madly in love with the fabric's colors, retro style and of course all the cherries! The dessert choices were obvious and easy - neapolitan ice cream with an assortment of toppings and soda pop. The setting was based around the idea of a vintage ice cream cart vendor that you might see visiting a town's local shopping square. For my craft project I remembered a tutorial on how to make giant ice cream cones made by Icing Designs. For all the props and supplies I just tried to keep in mind items that had a retro feel to them that might have been used during the 50's. Pop back over to the blog again tomorrow to see photos of the actual Cherry Sundae Social plus a PARTY PACKAGE GIVEAWAY!!!
