I scream, you scream, we all scream for a summertime ice cream party! With the warmer weather just around the corner, an ice cream themed party is absolutely perfect for a simple birthday or a “just because it’s hot out” celebration. We’re sharing with you a few must-haves for throwing a perfectly sweet soiree.
The decorations can be kept very simple, but these Honeycomb Tissue Paper Ice Cream Cones are just too cute for words. Hang them above the table (or from trees if you’re outside), and they’ll be all that you need to set the stage for an ice cream social.
Of course the main attraction at an ice cream party is the ice cream! Put together a build-your-own sundae bar so guests can customize their sweet treats. Instead of paper bowls, use chocolate-dipped and sprinkled waffle bowls. They’re super simple to make!
Start by melting one bag of milk chocolate chips, making sure you stir at 30-second intervals until the chips are completely smooth and melted through. Remove from the stove, and dip the rim of the waffle bowls into the chocolate and then straight into a plate of sprinkles. Let them dry, and they’re ready for sundae building! Let the kids choose their favorite ice cream flavor, and then they can have a blast adding syrups, toppings, whipped cream and—of course—a cherry!
A fun activity for an ice cream party is this Ice Cream Cone Piñata. Fill it with small trinkets and prizes, and kids will love taking turns trying to bust it open and gathering up the loot!
Keep the theme going by sending party guests home with sweet favors like ice cream cone lollipops and scented Ice Cream Bubbles for some outdoor fun.
Kids are sure to have an “ice-screaming” time at this simple soiree! We hope these must-haves provided some inspiration and ideas for your own sweet, summertime celebration. Happy wishes!
