  10. These items are so festive and fabulous! Can I ask what font is used for the food/beverage labels, please? I’m hosting an old fashioned Ice Cream Social at my workplace next week and need to make labels on the buffet for the different ice cream and topping flavors. Would you mind sharing what font it is, please? Something I can find on perhaps?

  11. The photography, set up, and all the props are beautiful! So fun to have you at our property, and I hope to have many more shoots here.

  14. Fabulous stuff, I love everything, well done girls!!

  15. Thank you for the kind words, Lia! I hope this party inspires others to celebrate in style! With just a little extra time and a few basic supplies, any simple occasion can look beautiful and personalized.

    I can taste that caramel corn now! Mmmmm! The recipe is by Annie’s Eats and works perfectly every time. For the 4th, I may set out mix-ins like candy, pretzels, and melted chocolate or peanut butter sauce so guests can create their own custom caramel corn mix. A perfect portable treat for watching the fireworks! :)
