Recipe For Fun Blog Hop!

Happy Saturday!
Welcome to the Recipe For Fun Blog Hop!

If you got here from the super talented Super Joy, then you are in the right spot.
 If you just happened to stumble across the hop on my blog today and would like to start at the beginning, hop on over and see Joy at Joy's Life.

For my project, I decided to make a little Ice Cream Sundae Toppings Bar.
It has been so hot lately so I figured what better way to cool off then with some ice cream after dinner. To make it extra fun, everybody gets to add whatever toppings they would like to their own ice cream.

*You can click on the pictures to enlarge them*

My family was so happy to see this little "spread" all set up after dinner. It was so easy to do and pretty cheap also. The little purple "ice cream pails" are from the dollar store and came 2 in a pack. I don't think they were originally made for ice cream sundaes but they worked perfectly!  The little glass bowls that I put the toppings in also came from the dollar store and each pack had 2 glass bowls in it. All I did was buy some toppings and set everything up on a little table by the dining room.

I made this little centerpiece for the Ice Cream Sundae Topping Bar:

All I did was cut out some ice cream cones from the Doodlecharms cricut cartridge at 3" and attached them to some bamboo skewers. I arranged everything into a foam block. Each skewer also has some curling ribbon attached to it to fill it up the spaces a little. I stamped out my sentiment and used my labels 4 spellbinders to cut it out and also attached that to a skewer and put it front and center. 

Isn't that sentiment awesome for a sundae party?

Here is a picture of one of the finished sundaes:
