I scream, you scream, we all scream for silver sparkles, disco balls, and ice cream! We love throwing fun styled summer parties, and this year’s concept was derived from a love of old time ice cream parlours, milky pastels and triple-scoop cones loaded with sprinkles. Of course it wouldn’t be a party without a little bit of glitter, so we gave our theme a disco twist! With pretty sweets and a swoon-worthy ice cream cake from our local favourite bakery, and custom party supplies by Lampshade Bash, tiny disco balls and succulent favours were the cherry on top of a perfect party. Whether you’re celebrating a birthday party or a bachelorette, we highly recommend you break out your favourite silver dancing shoes and throw a disco ice cream social of your own.
Last week in a flurry of silver glitter and pastel tulle we managed to throw together our second styled party shoot, the Disco Ice Cream Social. Paige and I are usually super planned when it comes to our projects, but thanks to crazy busy schedules and a last-minute vacation, we ended up really winging it this time. I’ll admit I was pretty nervous when I headed to Milk Glass with a backpack full of ice cream and disco balls Friday afternoon, but with the help of amazing makers like Bake Shoppe, Lampshade Bash, and Studio Mucci, and the genius of our photographer Scarlet O’Neill, everything really came together. Sure there were a few moments where something didn’t fit a model quite right, or those frantic seconds when the custom ice cream cake was melting beyond repair and we didn’t have a freezer onsite, but overall it was a dreamy, ice-creamy success!

There are very few things as synonymous with summer as ice cream, and every time the summer rolls around we can’t get enough of it! Cones, cups, cakes, you name it. There truly is nothing better than a pastel scoop or two on a hot sunny day.
This summer, we’ve decided to put together an extra special shoot dedicated almost entirely to the magic of ice cream! We call it the Disco Ice Cream Social, and though we aren’t ready to reveal much yet, we thought we’d put together a little inspiration post to give you a sneak peek into our sweet plans. And if that’s not enough for you, you can follow along with the Pinterest board as we continue to add to it as well.
If you enjoyed last summer’s Pastel Pool Party, trust us, this is one shoot you won’t want to miss!
