We all scream for ice cream!

This summer is HOT! But nothing should stop the fun of everyone’s favorite treat… ice cream! Break out the homemade ice cream machine or just pick up a variety of your favorite ice cream from the store.

An ice cream station added to any party will make your guests smile. Place a variety of ice cream toppings in cute containers to make a unique, self-serve bar! Details rents containers, or you can use your own. Topping ideas include chocolate chips, colorful gummy bears, classic sprinkles, fruit, nuts and anything you can think of! Don’t forget chocolate syrup and whipped cream!

Check out these cute ice cream cups and spoons from Tom Kat Studio. Add some custom ribbons or personalized names to the bowls and you will be well on your way to the cutest scoop of the summer!

Dry ice is an awesome solution to keeping ice cream frozen in the heat. Put a piece of dry ice in an ice chest with your ice cream. (Remember do not handle dry ice with bare hands. Always use a leather glove or tongs.) You can get dry ice in College Station by contacting A Dry Ice.

The old fashion freezer method is also a good solution. Immerse your ice cream tub in an insolated bucket with ice, water and rock salt. The bucket will keep the cold from the salt and ice. The salt causes a transfer of coldness from the ice to the ice cream. (Remember do not let any salt water seep into your ice cream… yuck!)

Dress it Up: Cocktail Tables

Especially for summer weddings, cocktail tables are a great place for guests to mingle. They can give your event space a completely new feel and set the mood for the evening. Dress up your cocktail tables in a unique way or try out one of these chic designs!

The Drape: A Classic
Draping with a bold linen will give the tables a prominent place at your event. Add a patterned overlay for extra pop!

The Wrap: Added Interest
There are many ways to make your tables visually interesting, but wrapping the pedestal will up sophistication and draw your guests in.

The Bow: Fabulous Fun
Tying a bow around your tables will add an extra bit of feminine fabulosity to each station!

The Embellishment: Custom Drama
Going beyond the bow, try adding a special embellishment to the pedestals of  your tables. You can incorporate your event's special theme or achieve a dramatic appeal.

The Pattern: Standing out from the crowd
The best way to add more drama to your event is using patterned linens. Not only do they look amazing, but they may even act as conversation starters for your guests!
