I scream, you scream, we all scream for this delightful ice cream party! With summertime just around the corner, an ice cream themed party is absolutely perfect for a simple birthday or a “just because it’s hot outside” celebration! There are so many sweet-tooth enticing details to admire – that this shindig is sure to leave partygoers with a creamy mustache smile.
As two busy, working moms (like many of you!), our Happy Wish Company styling concept is to create parties that are lovely, yet easy to implement. Our model sticks to the prettiness in keeping things clean, classic and simple – like we’ve done here with this ice cream party.
The adorable ice cream cone invitation that comes in both boy and girl versions served as the inspiration for the party’s color scheme of orange, lime green and chocolate brown for the boy party and pink, lime green and yellow for the girl.
To set the sweets-table stage, we filled a pedestal beverage dispenser with orange punch and filled three old fashioned glass jars with scrumptious sweets, including ice cream cone shaped candies, lime green gumballs and vanilla-flavored salt water taffy. Party-goers can fill clear mini gable totes to take home as a special treat!
Ice cream cone shaped sugar cookies frosted with multi-colored scoops are placed on a white serving platter atop a bright fabric table runner for an extra pop of color! White milk glass cake stands are stacked with white-frosted cupcakes adorned with colorful paper wrappers.
The simple backdrop is covered in bright horizontal striped fabric that incorporates the party’s color scheme. And it wouldn’t be a Happy Wish Company party without our signature coordinating fabric pennant banner hanging above!
The kid’s table is where the ice cream social creations are born! It starts with lime green or orange polka dot paper placemats at each setting. In the center, we’ve placed fun-striped paper cups atop a cake stand filled to the brim with all kinds of toppings, from sprinkles to marshmallows to crumbled Oreo cookies. 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!
Another great option for those who prefer to lick their ice cream are chocolate-dipped and sprinkled cones that they can top with their favorite scoop flavor. And to quench the thirst after all that sweetness is a mason drinking glass filled with the orange punch and a stripey straw placed at each chair!
To continue the theme, send party guest’s home with an ice-cream cone shaped container of scented bubbles (like vanilla, chocolate and strawberry) for some outdoor fun.
Kids are sure to have an “ice-screaming” time at this simple soiree! We hope this party has provided some inspiration and ideas for your own sweet, summertime celebrations!
