When it’s already 100 degrees out first thing when you get up in the morning, it’s hard not to obsess over ways to cool off! I’ve been dreaming about an ice cream social lately – gathering good friends for a good ol’ fashioned ice cream party. And recently I convinced my HOA to have an ice cream social for our next community gathering (which in return, I get to plan… Yay!)
Here are a few of the creative and refreshing recipes I’ve come across for inspiration when we get around to planning this summer soiree!
I love these vintage-inspired custom ice cream party invitations by SuitePaper.
There’s lots of cute ice cream party ideas on Spoonful.com like the cute almond sugar cookies decorated with ice cream cone designs above!
And I don’t even know where to begin with these Oreo fudge ice cream bars! Get the recipe on Pinch Of Yum, and just a warning: you’ll be on that site for awhile since the recipes and the food photography are equally delicious.
Clockwise from top left: Blueberry ice cream pie – get the recipe from The Rookie Cook; Ice cream cone cookie treats from Cookies & Cups; Banana ice cream with sweet and salty roasted almonds recipe available on Henry Happened; Peach and pistachio ice cream made with coconut milk – recipe on A House In The Hills.
