Brown Sugar Peach Ice Cream
is sure to be a hit.
Here's some advice about setting a scene that will take you right back to yesteryear.
Once the time and date are set, put everyone in an ice-cream party mood with an old-time invitation. Send an old-fashioned calling card, or set the theme with a simple, traditional invitation using nostalgic motifs such as antique cartoon sketches or soda shop images.
Bring the party to life with fun flair. "The key is using old-fashioned glassware to pull it together," Chicago area party planner Anne Malone says. Try local rental stores for old-fashioned ice-cream tables, wire stools, and tableware. If you want to buy your supplies, most housewares stores carry antique-looking lines as well. Have fun picking out a variety of glassware: tulip sundaes, tall sodas, banana boats, and parfaits. Make sure to stock up on authentic long spoons, too.
