Window Shopping for Summery Goodness June 5, 2008

Hey girls! Wow, I cannot believe it was Easter the last time I did a little window shopping with you all! My how time flies! I love checking out what is available at Sur la Table each season. I was not disappointed at all the summery goodness to be found! I would love to get a cute ice cream maker like this red one. Oh, nothing better than homemade ice cream on a hot summer day!

Or, if you must resort to a pint of Ben & Jerry’s (painful as that would be), why not eat it in style from your very own little ice cream cooler?

A very fun way to serve hot fudge and ice cream toppings! Remember, it is all about making memories with the kids. And having that cute little server would definitely make a memory. Use it for family night, or a kids birthday party! Oh, or you could have it on “SUNDAE”. A new tradition: Sunday Sundae’s.

Wait! Don’t sit on these candle holders! You’ll burn your bum.

Bzzz…. candle bees! Don’t sit on this candle either. Ouchy.

Refreshing lemonade served from a fancy schmancy server! Perfect for having your girlfriends over. Come on girls, let’s have a little lemonade party! Fresh squeezed lemonade. Yummy!

Love these pale pink French Bee bistro glasses, perfect for lemonade!

Ooooo, look at these little flip flops are coasters! Not exactly sure how you get your drink to fit around the straps, but they are cute anyways! My son would certainly be trying to get these on Winston’s feet.

These little ice cream cone cupcake pans are the cutest! Are they cake, or ice cream? So much fun. Why make ordinary cupcakes when you could make ice cream shaped ones?

You could put your cupcake right on a cupcake plate! Can’t get much sweeter than that!

I would love one of these little market baskets to carry all my goodies home!

All of this summery goodness can be found at Sur la Table.

    Okay, you’ve shown me lots of pretties and you’ve made me hungry.

    I’ll have some homemade ice cream, some HD Rum Raisin ice cream, some cupcakes and some cookies.

    Oh, and I definitely want some pink lemonade out of that adorable pink glass.

    Oh my goodness, so many cute things. I love the market basket. I have one like it that is plain blue, but now it looks SO boring when compared to the cute brown print.

  4. nel Says:

    lol… thanks for the warning about the chairs!

    Love the lemonade server. Wonder if I can find one in Australia?

  5. pam Says:

    Way cute, I love the ice cream makers, My family makes homemade ice cream every 4th of July our little tradition. Love the ice cream cupcake pan too fun.

  6. I’ll be there for some lemonade! What time shall I plan on coming over:)

    I love that bag from Sur La Table! Beautiful finds. Got me all ready for some lazy days at the swimming pool!

    Melissa, I had to giggle about your comment regarding your son trying to slip the flip flop coasters on Winstons feet. Too cute. If our kids were younger … heck, who am I kidding…even though they are teenagers they might find our Westie cute in these flip flops.

    BTW…We have the ice cream maker that you mentioned. May I suggest adding it to your “kitchen gadget” collection. It’s a great little machine!

    Here’s to a beautiful day!

  8. What fun summer goodies!

    I love window shopping – I saw those beach chair candles just the other day at a shop and thought how cute they were – the lemon-ade server is wonderful – I definitely want one of those and the pink birtro glasses – I think are my favorite – thanks for the shopping trip – I loved it!!!!

  24. Jessica Says:

    I have that little basket at the end, and I must say, it comes in handy for all kinds of random tasks. It’s super sturdy and I can vouch for it’s awesomeness with confidence. (Ps – I LOVE this blog, you just got yourself a spot on my blogroll)
