Summer’s in full swing, so these Ice Cream party ideas are right on the money. If it’s a birthday, maybe you can even get away with these instead of a cake- just have a candle for the birthday boy or girl’s cone.
The ice cream ‘buffet bar’ is an old idea that Vanessa over at Lella Boutique has delightfully updated for parties– so here’s a shout out to her for sharing these great ideas!
First off- these cones have been dipped in melted chocolate and then rolled in yummy things like chocolate chips, sprinkles, toffee bits. They certainly make a mouthwatering presentation.
Here’s something I never heard of– a mini marshmallow or two in the bottom of the cone to prevent drips.
Toppings can include all kinds of good things– cut up strawberries, the usual sprinkles, candies like Reese Bits or M&M’s, plus chocolate and caramel syrup.
Add in small cans of root beer and cola for an ice cream float station! Colorful cups and straws will complete the set-up.
And if you can’t get away without a birthday cake, make this ice cream cone cake also featured at this Lella Boutique Ice Cream party. You’ll find the cake, frosting and ganache recipe links over on the site.
If your party kids are young enough to need help scooping the ice cream, go all out and dress the part of the Ice Cream Man, all in white, maybe even with a mustache.
Summer’s were made for ice cream, so it’s a perfect party theme.
