Styling, Photographing and Hosting an Ice Cream Social

The week has been nothing but ice cream. Not a bad week, eh? This summer marks a new adventure for this blog and for me as a writer. The Art of Homemaking is now a column in a beautiful publication, Kentucky Monthly.

In the most current issue, not only is the inaugural AoH piece featured but I was also honored to have the chance to write about the first sheep cheese farm in Kentucky; Good Shepherd Cheese.

I got a little off topic cream. cream. An ice cream social, in fact. I styled/photographed a social here at the house for an upcoming Kentucky Monthly issue and needless to say, it was a sugary delight.
Here are a few pictures to wet the appetite. Be sure to pick up the August issue to see what fun was had...

  4. True Ally!!!!! Ok...I'll see if I can't swing that :) Maybe a FB Flicker photostream? The pics are quite yummy.
