Irresistible Summer Delicacy Idea

Gourmet Ice Cream Bar

Looking for a cool wedding reception idea? Your night will be the talk of the town with a gourmet ice cream bar! Who doesn’t love ice cream? Ice cream is one of the most delicious treats any time of year. And I’m not talking about a sprinkle-your-own hot fudge sundae bar. This type of ice cream bar means business. Elegant business. 

Treat your guests to a sophisticated twist on the traditional ice cream bar. They're sure to rave about the honey roasted banana split. The blackberry lavender ice cream topped with fresh blackberries, dried lavender, and basil will leave them begging for more. And last, but certainly not least, the exquisite pistachio mint ice cream garnished with dark chocolate shavings, fresh mint leaves, and pistachio crumbles will steal the spotlight. Did I mention how easy it is to set up a gourmet ice cream bar yourself? We have a variety of ice cream dishes that make it simple to set up, impress, and clean up! Here we used the fluted dishpedestal dish, and banana split dish with baroque spoons.
