Ice Cream Bar For Grad Party

Today I would like to show you some more photos of the H.S. grad party we recently hosted for our son. One of his favorite foods is ice cream. We checked on renting a soft serve machine but it was going to cost a couple hundred dollars. I checked with a local dairy that makes wonderful ice cream and I could rent one of their freezers and buy 3 gallon tubs of ice cream for a fraction of the cost. I bought a variety of toppings and put them in Ball jars that I borrowed from my friend who had done the ice cream sundae bar at her daughter's graduation. I bought wooden tags from Pick Your Plum and spray painted them with chalk board paint. White leather was threaded through the tags and tied on the ball jars for a no fuss approach to labels.

  It was obviously a very popular treat for all ages with the big guys going back for seconds!
