It’s the middle of February, and I’m thinking about…an ice cream social.

Well, OK. A friend has a landmark anniversary coming up in the summer, and it’s been suggested to ‘do a different kind of party.” Originally, I was going to do a fancy cake for them, but why be traditional?

Hence the ice cream social. Look at those tall Old-Time Sundae Dishes and those colored Aluminum Ice Cream Bowls. How cute are they?

I could start with the ice cream glasses and dishes, make our own ice creams, put together a few platters of classic cookies, lay in lots of drinks, put cool table covers on the tables, play some 50s and 60s music–it would be a lovely evening that’s perfect for visiting and reminiscing.

It seems the thing to do while stuck in the house on a damp winter day–planning a party for warmer times, when I’ll enjoy the sunshine and fellowship with friends and family.
