Party Panache, Ice Cream Birthday Party

CC told her mom she wanted to have her birthday party

at home this year

CC, DD and I had such fun planning it!

{pretend the 9 is turned around}

The theme of the party was Ice Cream and it was all very girly girl

The decorations were ice cream cones, balloons and lots of pink

DD covered her table with 2 pink ombre plastic tablecloths

We set paper flower ice cream cones in glasses down the center

and filled the spaces between them

with colored ribbons and balloons

Upon arrival, each guest was given a pretty pastel colored robe to wear

The main activity of the party was having their faces painted

The face painter’s colorful table and outfit

coordinated with the party decor!

Each girl took a turn having a design painted on her face

The kitchen island was covered in a striped plastic cloth

and served as a craft table

A large Flower Ice Cream Cone decorated the center

Rolls of washi tape and scissors were placed near each place

for the girls crafts

Each girl got a wood letter of her first initial {Hobby Lobby}

The girls used colorful washi tape in a variety of patterns

to decorate their letters

5 of her friends names begin with E!

The girls decorated their letters with the colorful tapes

while waiting for their turn with the face painter

A drink station was set up on the kitchen counter

with carafes of sparkling lemonade and water

CC wanted to use fancy grown up style glasses

We found these on Amazon here

they were the perfect size for little hands,

only about 7 inches tall

I wrote the girls names on them with a paint pen

I also found these Happy Birthday ice cream cone napkins here

And these adorable ice cream cone spoons

Colorful paper plates from Hobby Lobby

fit right in with the party decor and matched the robes

After a lady like lunch of finger sandwiches and fruit

it was time for dessert…

No birthday cake today,

dessert was an Ice Cream Sundae Charcuterie tray!

CC declared it the best party ever!

Stop by on Thursday when I will be sharing the tutorial

for the floral ice cream cones on the monthly Creative Crafts Blog Hop

An ice cream sundae bar or charcuterie board is perfect for any age group

For adults I would swap out the gummy candies

for more sophisticated choices

like candied pecans, walnuts or pistachios,

maraschino cherries, a variety of syrups,

chocolate or butterscotch chips,

small pieces of fruit, pretzels…

Endless Possibilities!

    What an absolutely fantastic party! Any young lady–they are all so beautiful– would adore all the trimmings. (My granddaughter’s name starts with E as well.) I simply love the robes and ALL the decor. I have the same ice cream spoons, they came as a set with a tan bowl that had a crisscross pattern like an ice cream cone. Oh these wonderful days–so glad you have this gala party captured for the future. Great going, a party without rival! Georgia Gal

    • Thanks so much Georgia Gal, we all had such a good time and the girls were adorable! I saw the set with the ice cream cone spoons and bowls but my daughter wanted bigger bowls, but they are really cute 🙂
