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

Man it's hot outside, and when it's this hoe all I can think of is ice cream!! Here is a gorgeous ice cream sundae bar from blog Eat Drink Chic as inspiration. You can even download the cute sign templates here.
The best way to create a ice cream bar (or candy station) is to pick a color scheme and run wild with it. I found a few products to make a fun summer inspired ice cream bar.
Beach Ball Placecard Holder
For the label holders look for fun place card holders like the ones found here. I chose beach balls to bring in that Beach-summer look.

Polka Dot Ice Cream Bowls (set of 4)
 These fun ice cream bowls found here are colorful and great to hold a myriad of toppings.
Gerson Small Glass Apothecary Jars with Lids, Set of 2
Apothecary jars found here can hold nuts - the lid will keep them safe from anyone with allergies.

Anchor Hocking 1-Gallon Heritage Hill Jar with Glass Lid
 Another jar option found here.

This silverware drawer can be cute sprayed white and label holders placed on. Found this one on Etsy .

Yellow striped table cloth from Cloth Connection

Yellow Cake Decorations - YELLOW JIMMIES EDIBLE Candy Confetti Sprinkles for Cakes, Cupcakes & Cookies

Yellow Chocolates from Candy Warehouse

DOTS Original Chewy Candy

Also, include white toppings like coconut and marshmallows.

Another idea would be to make a ice cram sandwich bar. Make the sandwiches ahead of time (super easy - buy cookies and ice cream) and freeze at least overnight. Put out the sandwiches and have guests dip in a bunch of different toppings like sprinkles, nuts, even Carmel and chocolate sauce.
Tovolo Ice-Cream Pop Molds, Set of 4
A friend of mine got these super cool Ice Cream molds that allow you put your own mixture in it and freeze. Mix vanilla ice cream with a bunch of candy and freeze. Or, for the health conscious make it with yogurt like Chobani or Fage.
