We All Scream for Ice Cream Tablescape!

"I Scream You Scream We All Scream for Ice Cream!"

Welcome to Day Three of "Ice Cream Week" at Red Couch Recipes!  Today we had a fun afternoon snack on the deck with my husband and my two daughters...my son is at a High Adventure Scout Camp.  As were were eating ice cream, one of my daughters said that she "likes mom doing her blog!" 

My nine year old daughter bought several of these ice cream plates for my birthday in May, and I bought a few more, and I have been saving them for "Ice Cream Week!"  They come in two "flavors" and they are both delicious!  She bought them at Robert's Arts and Crafts.


We set the table on the deck. I don't know about you but I love eating ice cream with sterling silver spoons! The ice cream makes the spoons so cold!!   I received the "Damask Rose" pattern from my parents when my husband and I were married. I would love to find some spoons at a thrift store or tag sale just for ice cream!


How about an Ice Cream Sundae?   This is Rocky Road topped with Whopper's Chocolate Malt Sauce and Slivered Almonds.


Hurry Up!  Come and eat the ice cream is melting!


Here's a close-up of the yummy ice cream!

Joni, those ice cream cone dishes are adorable! Looking at that ice cream is making me wish I had made some this weekend!

Bonnie said...

Oh, I am so ready for ice cream again and again and again.
Yours looks so inviting. Cute little ice cream plates.

Like the sterling spoon idea.

Anita said...

Yum, yum, yum!! Those plates are adorable, and everything tastes better with a sterling silver spoon! Have you tried ebay? You never know what you can find in a pattern. I even find pieces for my pattern, and it's from 1893. I love the "Damask Rose" pattern too. Thanks for stopping by too!!

I just love that your daughter bought you the ice cream plates for your birthday! Ice cream is one thing I just cannot resist, and your photography makes me crave some at 8:23 in the morning! Such a fun table!

Barbara said...

What cute plates! I am sitting here, not having eaten anything yet and thinking that ice cream for breakfast may be a really good idea! I had forgotten how good ice cream is with a silver spoon. Thanks for the reminder.

Love the dishes and since it is so very hot today, ice cream would be perfect right now!

Debby said...

Hi. Welcome. I am here from Brenda's blog Cozy Little House. Your sister's blog and yours has some very yummy looking food. I'm going to have to try some of these.

Linda (More Fun Less Laundry) said...

Your ice cream looks so cool and delicious! I like it best when it just starts melting a little. I have a Scout too, who made Eagle recently. Hope your son enjoys it as much as mine does! The high adventure camps are wonderful. Linda

Bill said...

It all looks wonderful, and that rocky road is calling to me! Don't you think ice cream (or just about anything else) just plain ol' tastes better when we use real silverware? It can't be my imagination, can it? ;)

Maureen said...

I think I gained weight reading this post! :)

Delish!

These ice creams look like something 7 and 9 year old girls would like, both to eat and make. We'll get right on it!

Sarah said...

Oh, how I wish I had a bowl of that sitting in front of me tonight. This all looks delicious. Cute tablescape! ~ Sarah
