Jack Rudy Cocktail Cherries

Porcelain Sugar Cone

Don't risk being a drip! These dishwasher- and microwave-safe porcelain cones are some of the coolest ice cream vessels we've ever seen. Though they're best, of course, with a sweet scoop nestled within, they also make darling bud vases, candleholders and more.

Glittery Gold Ice Cream Paddles

A great bowl of ice cream is an occasion all its own, but why not turn an ice cream social into a fancy-pants soiree with the addition of these glitzy little scoopers? They're modeled after the standard wooden paddle, but you can use (and delight in) them again and again.
