Reception Ideas: Citrus Ice Cream Soda Station

on by in Weddings & Such

We are so excited to share this sunny post with you today! A few weeks ago I was dreaming up some different ideas for a fun addition to a Florida wedding. I wanted it to be a delicious treat that guests would be surprised and happy to have during a hot, sunny Florida day.

I love attending a wedding with a specialty bar or a customized dessert station but then I thought, why not replace a dessert bar with an ice creme soda station? Mix in a bar element with dessert flavored vodkas, citrus candies and juices, top the yummy drink with some ice cream and voila - what a fun way to end an evening of dancing and celebrating at a Florida Wedding! We collaborated with the wonderful Michelle March to capture the sunny photos and I am dreaming of attending a reception with this set up to end the evening!

We created an Orange Creamsicle Float: Orange Juice, Orange Izze Soda, Frosting Cupcake Vodka and a scoop of Vanilla Bean Ice Cream & a Key Lime Frosting Float: Lemon Frozen Yogurt, Lemon Vodka and Sparkling Izze Lime. Garnish both with a slice of citrus candy and a fun straw!

I created an ombre paper chain backdrop that was so simple and so cheery! Wouldn't it be beautiful to incorporate this decor into the rest of your reception!

Thank you Michelle for your beautiful photos and Make Merry for the lovely menu signs! I can't wait to have an ice cream soda at a hot sunny Florida wedding! YUM! xoxo~ Becca

    Oh, i LOVE this!! I am freezing here in snow and -7 degrees ( 19°F) but looking at those cheerful colors makes me fell all warm and summery. The backdrop is amazing and perfect for a sunny Florida wedding! I think this would be cute as a photobooth backdrop as well, or to decorate the arch. Great inspiration and a wonderful color theme!

    What a fabulous idea and post! When I lived in Texas, I was always trying to come up with ideas for a refreher bar to keep the guests cool and yet serve delicious items. Even the setup was great. Thanks for the ideas and the great post!

    Hi, love the backdrop my question is how do you make it stay on wall … think with tape will fall all over the table. Thanks!


  1. […] Nostalgia is likely to set in with this paper chain party decoration. As kids, we use to make these paper chains out of scraps of paper just for the fun of it. Well now it’s time to put those repressed skills to good use as you create a festive party decoration. You can use this project to line walls or doorways or you can hang them from the ceiling to add a little extra pizzaz. [Courtesy of FloridianWeddings] […]
