Serving hacks, DIY decorations, creative treats... so many awesome ice cream party ideas!!!

I’m planning my daughter’s ice cream birthday party that’s in a few weeks, and I wanted to share these awesome ice cream party ideas with you!

Since my daughter’s birthday is right in the middle of summer and always hot, we served ice cream pops instead of cake last year. That was a big hit with the guests! This year she wants a whole ice cream themed party, and I think it’s going to be so fun (and sweet!).

I got to work and designed a full set of party printables with an old fashioned ice cream shoppe theme, incorporating my favorite watercolors! They’re now listed in my Etsy shop, so you can use them for your ice cream party too!
