Having a daughter means I spend a lot of time playing dress up and having tea parties. What’s great is that my best friend has a daughter around the same age as mine, so we often arrange play dates for the girls. We recently had a princess tea party filled with delicious sweets and crafting.
The weather has been nearly 100 degrees and I knew an ice cream treat would be a great way to cool us down. So on last week we went shopping to buy some strawberry ice cream. Since this was a pink affair strawberry ice cream was a must. ;)
I tried the First Street strawberry and cookies & cream ice cream. This has to be the best strawberry ice cream I’ve ever had! We planned on adding more strawberries to it but it was perfect the way it was, with nearly a strawberry in every bite.
I made the girls strawberry ice cream cupcakes. I used the same ice cream cupcakes recipe I shared a few months ago. But the fun didn’t stop there. I also made ice cream sandwiches out of chocolate chip cookies. The ice cream sandwiches were for my best friend and I to enjoy. To make them I let the cookies & cream ice cream soften a little then spread it in between two chocolate chip cookies. I then rolled them in confetti sprinkles and placed them in the freezer to harden.
The setup was quite simple with a pink quilt laid across the yard for the girls to sit on. I have yet to buy my daughter a glass tea set but this musical play tea set worked perfectly. It even makes a pouring sound if you tilt it over.
