In honor of this delicious occasion, I offer some ice cream inspiration . . .

"1950's era ice cream cart-style white painted wood bar cart with shaker, utensils and glassware. Finish is original. Not electrified."

Yes, I have eaten ice cream and milkshakes at Draper's Cafe at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. Yummy decor. Yummy food.

 "Striped wallpaper adds a feminine touch. Homeowner Alison Booth doesn't shy away from color, and her conveniently-located second-floor laundry room is no exception. Strong colors and graphic patterns balance each other and add interest. For a bold wallpaper like this, keep cabinets and flooring in neutral or white."
Designer: Alison Booth, Booth Supply.

 "The ice-cream-parlor-style breakfast room is a favorite of Georgie's and her siblings. The children's portraits decorate the walls."

"This is a lovely set of twelve antique sterling silver spoon straws. They measure 8 1/4 inches long and are marked sterling on the backs of the spoons. The handles are hollow for sipping your ice cream soda, iced tea or mint julep. The bowls are heart shaped and etched with an Art Nouveau design. These are over 100 years old and do have some scratches and a few tiny dents from use."

"Dave Matthews looks pretty excited to take a lick out of his band's own Ben and Jerry's flavor, Magic Brownies."
The Huffington Post (August 24, 2011). 

"There’s local, and then there’s Southern Craft Creamery, in small-town Marianna, Florida, which takes the food world’s current scratch-made ethos to a whole new level. Not only do ice cream makers Lauren and Zach O’Bryan look to nearby growers for the ingredients that flavor their gelato-style cream, but they also help run the dairy and tend to the hundreds of cattle whose milk anchors their product."
