Summer is inching closer and closer by the day, and my gal pal/fellow party thrower extraordinaire Dani from Drafts & Crafts and I thought there would be no better way to kick off your Summer by throwing your very own ice cream social! Whether it be with your best friends or a children’s backyard party, an ice cream social is an easy and affordable way to impress and delight your guests!
This festive idea first dawned on us when we realized via an instagram post that we both had recently purchased the most adorable glass ice cream cones from Anthro! So, when you put two creatives together who both happen to have a sweet tooth- whoa-la! A Summer ice cream social is born! And boy did we have fun putting this shoot together! A few scoops of Edy’s ice cream made this the yummiest of my shoots thus far!
Tips for throwing your Summer ice cream social:
- Keep it S.I.M.P.L.E! Stick to 3 flavors max & under 5 toppings. We don’t want sugar headaches & want to keep that budget low!
- Make it F.E.S.T.I.V.E! Chances are you already have craft paper for DIY bunting banners. Here are some easy Diy links for crafting yours! Here & Here
- Add a D.E.S.I.G.N! Put your pretty handwriting to use by listing out your ice cream flavors and toppings on a chalkboard sign! Handwriting not your best skill? Type out a sign and frame it on your table!
I would love to hear your ideas for summer parties, bashes, and shin-digs! Comments always welcome below!
