Ice Cream Anyone (*2nd Posting)

Something odd is going on with blogger so I am posting this for a 2nd time
Hello and welcome to my 
mini ice cream party! 
I decided to go against the grain- 
even though  it's cold and wintry out
I am going to have an ice cream party! 
(Don't forget you can click any picture to enlarge)
We can either have the ice cream in a bowl 
or make a cone! 
 I found a can of some Chopped Pineapple- It should add a nice pop of flavor as well as some Caramel for drizzle...
I used only what I already had in the house rather than going out for groceries...but had I gone out I would have gotten whipped cream, bananas, chocolate syrup and maraschino cherries!
 I selected Strawberry Cheesecake for the ice cream...
I'm using my ice bucket to serve the ice cream from...
 Condiments include- shaved chocolate...
 Chopped pecans...
Crumbled up Chocolate Chip Cookies..
And of course some sprinkles...
 I ordered these dishes a while back from
One King's Lane.
The manufacturer is Rosanna- the black ones said Dinner Party on the box, and the smaller plates said Cioccolato on the box.
 These are close ups of the plates...
I thought they were so cute! 
I scream, you scream, we all scream for Ice Cream!
LOL..my Mom taught me that one!

 And by coincidence these little ice cream bowls are by Rosanna too!
I've owned these for a long time, 
they came from what used to be
Marshall Fields...
I've eaten a lot of ice cream from these bowls!
I  had some fun playing with this tablescape...
 I used my little rooster juice glasses from Pfaltzgraff
The tablecloths are from a web site called
Bright Settings - they will make any size
you want and have a lot of fabric choices...
They made both the white and the 
checkerboard ones for me.

I used my artificial boxwood topiary for the centerpiece...
Just having some fun on this cold winter's day! 
I've also been known to make a summer type meal in the middle of winter...baked beans, potato salad, and even something grilled!  

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed it!

  1. Liz, Cold or not, I'm always in the mood for icecream. And with all those fun toppings we can really guild the lily! YUM! What fun bowls. I could get lots of use out of them!( love the table and surrounding area... and LOVE that plant!)
    Thank you for stopping by to visit. I am a new follower!

  2. Love it! Your post made me hungry- I think I'll go have lunch! What a great table- your dishes are so cute. Great idea, just turn up the heat in the room and no one will ever know it's winter!

  3. What a beautiful way to eat ice cream. Loved the black and white check and all your pretty plates and bowls. What a nice set up, and bet the ice cream tasted mighty good.
    I'd like to rush right over!! lol
    Blessings to you,

  4. Love the buffalo check tablecloth!! It certainly makes a perfect backdrop for the ice cream. Your bowls and plates are sooo perfect. Great table.

  5. Hi lovely lady. I love your tablescape for a party with ice cream !!!! You know I love a party sweet lady.

  6. ANYTIME is perfect for ice cream. What a great idea and everything looks delish! Your table is perfect and so charming...love the square plates.

  7. I could sit at this table and eat ice cream for days! I LOVE ice cream...much to my waist's dismay. I love the checked tablecloth...always a winner. Thank you for sharing your charming design. Cherry Kay

  8. What a capitol idea! I really like the black & white checkered cloth instead of the red & white one might usually see! It dresses it up and makes it look a bit more contemporary. As for ice cream in winter...I will stand IN the blizzard chowing down on a cone! It doesn't matter to me, either!!! Have a happy week!

  9. Looks super yummy and what a nice tablescape to eat it at! Take that Winter! I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who makes potato salad in the winter!


  10. What a gorgeous table setting! I love the tablecloth and all the black and white.

    I hope you will stop by and visit the linky party I am hosting. There are prizes!

  11. What a fun table, Liz! Those "chocolate" plates are fabulous, and I love the bowls, too. I will eat ice cream no matter the weather! Thanks for the tip about Bright Settings. I'm off to check them out! Thanks, too, for commenting on my table this week.

  12. It is always time for ice cream! I just love that black and white cloth. Thank you so much for the tip on Bright Settings. I've been looking for one like yours for quite a while and finally settled on napkins when I couldn't find one. Your dishes are just gorgeous. Ice Cream with style!

  13. It's about 65 degrees here in South Carolina so it would be a perfect time for ice cream! Love your tablescape, but I am more interested in those black and white plates in the cabinet behind your table. You see, I have b&w curtains in my kitchen and I have been looking for a platter or plate to match. Do you mind telling me where you got them?

  14. Yes, I would like some ice cream, right now if possible, and I would like it topped with caramel at your very saucy table!
