Peekaboo’s Guide to Throwing an Ice Cream Party
Thinking of the perfect way to embrace your inner child, your inner Martha, and eat your veggies—at the same time? A Peekaboo ice cream social is your answer! Before you fall down the Pinterest rabbit-hole searching for decoration inspiration, take a look at these six simple DIYs that will be the cherry on top of your ice cream themed party.
Six DIY Pinterest-Worthy Ice Cream Decor Ideas
Ice Cream Party Hats
You’re never too old for a party hat, especially one that’s as festive as an ice cream cone! With just a few craft supplies, party hats can be transformed into ice cream cones hats. To get the waffle cone effect, use a marker to draw a diamond-shaped pattern across brown craft paper hat. Top with a pompom and thread a ribbon through the bottom of the hat so you can tie a bow under the chin! These hats are the cutest way to spice up your ice cream party décor.
Pin the Cherry on the Ice Cream Game
Games are a necessity for any type of party. An updated parlor game, pin the toppings on the cone, will keep the mood lively and fun. Use a large printed ice cream sundae photo (sans cherry) and attach to a poster board. Print out an image of a cherry for each party guest and label with their name. For double duty – because who doesn’t love a 2-for-1 – use the cherries as name cards! When everyone is ready to play, each player gets a chance to pin the cherry to the sundae (don’t forget the blindfold). The closest cherry-to-sundae alignment wins!
Ice Cream Balloons
Ice cream celebrations (or any celebrations) are so much more fun with balloons. What about a balloon that looks like an ice cream cone and is filled with sprinkles? BINGO! Start by filling a clear balloon with helium and multicolored sprinkle-shaped confetti. Attach the ice cream scoop to a brown cone-shaped cylinder. Now you have some fun ice cream decor that is ready to party!
Without a fully stocked sundae bar with toppings, there is no ice cream party. Pre-scoop flavor options and serve them in their original containers to make the sundae building station (and cleanup) as easy as possible. Offer a generous selection of toppings, including candies, sprinkles, graham crackers, marshmallows and more to top off the perfect ice cream party layout.
Sprinkle Rimmed Cups
Everyone loves sprinkles! For a fun twist on the traditional ice cream cone, pre-prep some cups and cones with sprinkle rims. Melted chocolate can serve as the “glue” to hold the sprinkles of your choice in place. Kid-friendly margaritas are ready to go!
Party Favor Sweets
As if party favors aren’t sweet enough, hide them in an ice cream pint for double the sweetness! Empty out a few ice cream pints and send guests home with a container full of fun toppings and goodies – gummy bears, oreos, dried nuts, and themed trinkets are always a hit!
