Last month I threw myself a birthday party. I really don't like birthday parties but since it was a "milestone" year, I knew that if I didn't do it, someone would plan a surprise party and I would show up without makeup and dressed in something completely inappropriate. I like to plan parties and had decided a few months ago that I wanted to do a vintage ice cream social and since I was about to become "vintage" myself it was the perfect opportunity. So, back to the reason for this post. I tend to "obsess" about things that I am working on. I like to think that I am just a perfectionist but I have heard other words for it. Whatever. For this party, I made several fabric banners (which I don't have pictures of at the moment) and lots of paper craft projects. Today I ran across this bunch of unused paper flags. I only needed a couple dozen to use for fruit skewers but once I got started, I couldn't stop. Anyone need some flags:)
Here they are as fruit skewers
I even made labels for the ice cream toppings (as if they wouldn't know what they were)
I made home made coconut ice cream (my favorite) and fresh strawberry ice cream. The ice cream social was a hit. Oh and in case you were wondering, wine and ice cream aren't bad together:)
One more picture that I ran across today while looking for these. I couldn't resist taking a picture of this yummy bowl of fruit that Goose and I shared this summer at one of our backyard picnics. I miss summer already!
