ECS 5th Monday Party

Wow!!! Hard to believe July is almost over., Thankfully though we have not 4 Mondays, but 5 to enjoy this month, which works out deliciously since July is Ice Cream Month!!! So here is how we;ll work this cool week long party. All posts must have some reference to the yummy confection, but it is not just limited to Ice Cream flavors and recipes. For fun how about some posts about Ice Cream Parlors and Soda Fountain memories or.spotlighting some of those places still in business! Do you collect vintage ice cream paraphernalia, scoops, or serving dishes? Do you decorate in ice cream colors? You know...lime sherbet green,  pistachio, chocolate brown, cherry smash red,  Been to any local Ice Cream Socials lately? Remember the old crank ice cream churns? Oh there are as many post ideas as there are flavors so come one come all to the ECS  Ice Cream Social.

Let Us Entertain You

tinypic

We all love to entertain in out 'cottages'. our cottage styles really shine when we combine favorite recipes or take-out with cherished dinnerware, beverageware, serving pieces, silverware, linens, placemats, and beloved collections to create fun and wonderful tablescapes in a comfy nook for one, on an intimate table for two, for a small get-together, or for a grand gathering. Themes are as boundless as our imaginations. Each table a cottage one-of-a-kind.
