Ice Cream Anyone?

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!
