Sydney's ice cream birthday party was this weekend!!
We held it in our backyard and prayed for good weather. There's nothing like cold ice cream to beat the Texas heat!
For simple decorations, I strung ice cream cones in the trees.
An idea I got from TheTomKat studio.
I had fresh, cold watermelon sitting out as the guests arrived. Whether eaten or not, serving a healthy snack cleared my conscience about all of the sugar that was about to be inhaled! I borrowed this shutter from my hallway to add color & interest.
The main attraction was of course, the ice cream table!
Campbell Ryan designed these adorable labels for the cups and toppings.
Inspired by Martha Stewart, I even tried to incorporate the ice cream theme into the cupcakes.
Kids grabbed bubble wands from 1 pail & wet ones from the other.
This pinata, from Hobby Lobby, was a huge hit with the older kids.
For the younger ones, I laid out toys on this rug
As party favors, each family took home their own ice cream shoppe.
A great idea from Polkadots & Pirates.
Just add ice cream!
Everything went over so well, we may be having ice cream parties every summer, whether celebrating birthdays or not~
