I definitely don’t think it’s a stupid idea.  When I was in university, we used to have outdoor icecream socials all the time.  However, they weren’t so worried about it looking pretty. 

I think if you did a table with a long table cloth that you could hide the extra icecream in coolers underneath and just bring out a little at a time. 

Are you planning on having the guests scoop their own, or have somebody stationed there?

I thought it would be a fun idea.  BF and I have seen mashed potato bars made to look like ice cream bars, but I think I’d rather have the ice cream.

You’d probably have to rent one of those ice-cream freezer type things, or store it on dry ice or something.

I think you would be best off not displaying the icecream itself, just the topping. I would also recommend asking a good natured family friend to do the scooping, because otherwise it could be a mess fast.

I like the idea of keeping the ice cream in coolers under a table out of the sun. I think that would keep them cold for the most part. And I totally agree with having someone scoop the ice cream would be great. However, if you were to serve it yourself, Mrs. Mary Jane and her husband cut their own cake at home and she said it gave them time to greet each guest like a receiving line.
