On Tuesday, November 13th, the BLEND team was invited to the Art of Ice Cream Experience where we found ourselves at a whimsical intersection of ice cream and Instagram.

The Art of Ice Cream Experience is an interactive playground for all ages that brings your wildest cravings to life with frozen treat-themed installations. From neon signs that read “Go Shawty, It’s SherbertDay” to a pit full of Neapolitan ice cream-colored balls big enough for your entire crew, every inch of this place is a photo opportunity waiting to happen. We don’t want to spoil all of the surprises in store at this SoCo gem, but check out some of our favorite installations pictured here.

The ladies of BLEND, Bailey Whelton, Kaylin Balderrama, and Blair Fielder, were “mint to be” in this milkshake-inspired scene located as you enter the installation.
