For this week's tablescape, my theme is an ice cream social. I went out shopping today at some neighborhood sales and I found a Hamilton Beach milkshake machine and some old fashioned metal sundae cups. I've been purchasing old ice cream cartons when I find them and these are my latest ones. I bought them to use as gift boxes.
For the tablecloth I used some red and white ticking. It was perfect for my theme today. I also found an old red ice cream scooper.
I started with my red charger plates. I use these all year long. Then I layered with two square plates. I love these depression glass plates. I found them at the flea market last month and I think I am going to keep them. They look great layered and they mix well with my little square ruffled depression glass fruit plates.
I used the largest ice cream carton for the flowers. I opened up one end and placed a drinking glass in it and arranged the flowers inside of it. Won't these ice cream cartons make fantastic gift boxes?
I love my milk shake maker. I am not sure it's truly old, but it does work and I will take it out to the shop tomorrow and put it in my space.
I also found this beautiful frame today and it already had the chalkboard in it. It was a great find. Isn't it pretty?
The strawberry milkshakes are "adults only." My daughter mixed strawberry ice cream with Pinnacle Cake Vodka. Then she decorated with sprinkles, whipped cream and a strawberry. She also made the mini cupcakes for me. They turned out so cute with just a quarter stawberry stuck in the frosting.
It was fun to set up this table. Very summery indeed.
I love this strawberry bubble bath crate. I found this today at a sale as well. I didn't even realize it was for bubble bath until I looked at my photos.
Thanks so much for visiting. I love your visits.
