Birthday Parties: Double Scoop Ice Cream Party!

Two of my fabulous friends just hosted an joint ice cream party for their two little ones who turned two! I LOVE the ice cream theme, and have been thinking about it for Kate's next birthday (March 2010). Since I did a CUPCAKE theme for her first, and LOLLIPOP theme for her second, it only seems appropriate to stick with something sweet!
Previously, I posted the invitation when I designed it, and a few of the photos I took, but I have some of the professional photos now to share with you!

Stef baked the adorable ice cream cone cupcakes, similar to the ones from this party I posted HERE. I created cupcake toppers with the birthday boy & girl's names, my ice cream illustration, "happy birthday" and the number "2".
An ice cream party is so easy and fun for celebrating any occasion! Stef & Taryn setup an ice cream bar with every topping imaginable. Yum!

The favor cones were adorable! Stef found them at the dollar store and filled them with candy, crayons & bubbles! I created the coordinating ice cream tags!

My daughter has decided on a ice cream theme for her birthday, too! I gathered some ideas from the web and posted on my blog--take a look! (but hopefully not in FireFox...we're having issues.
