A Party With an Ice Cream Theme!

This year is quite the year for my parents. They celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in April, and then they are both turning 70 this year! With all the events going on, they decided they wanted to have a party! 

My parents left the food planning up to me. My dad had his heart set on renting a soft serve ice cream machine, and they wanted the party in the afternoon, so we decided on an ice cream theme party with some other appetizers. 

It really was so much fun. Delicious fun! We ended up with 19 different ice cream toppings! I think we had anything covered you could possibly want. So, if you ever want to do something a little bit different, here are some idea's for you!  I didn't want to have to worry about refrigeration or melting issues, so you could always have lot's more if you had that aspect covered.

I really wish I had done a better job of taking pictures this day. And of the food! 

For toppings we had:
Mini M & M's
Sliced Banana's
Maraschino Cherries
Pineapple Tidbits
Crushed Oreo's

Bacon Crumbles. Yes, Bacon!
Fresh sliced strawberries
Crushed chocolate chip cookies
Chocolate Sprinkles
Rainbow Sprinkles

Brownie Brittle
Strawberry wafer cookies
Pirouline Cream Filled Wafers

I didn't catch them in a photo, but then we had sauces! 
Sea Salt Caramel 

And of course some Whipped Cream.

Then we had regular cones, waffles cones, or cups for the ice cream.

I would have loved to have made some of the sauces from scratch, but you know.... You have to go with convenience some times!


  1. Ice cream party? wow I wish I were there too!! It's so darn hot here..so unusually hot and no rain at all for such a long time.

  2. I was hoping you'd share about it! I am always bad at getting pictures when there is a lot going on too, but those jars turned out so cute!

  3. Love the ice cream party idea - so original. Have a great week. Cheers from Carole's Chatter

  4. WOW! What a fun idea. I love it!!! I love how you did up the jars. This is really cool. Pinning!

  5. Ice Cream Themed party!! Seems so good. I wish I could have been to this party. Anyways, my sister is marrying so for her bridal shower I was thinking to set up an Ice Cream bar in the bash. These ideas would be useful for me. Well, I need some help with the d├ęcor and to find some affordable venue NYC as well. Can you share any recommendations?
