TOP ICE CREAM SOCIAL TIPS

  • Set up an “ice cream” stand with fun striped fabric and a scallop overhang. Attach colorful ribbon bows for added decoration. We chose a bright aqua + yellow color scheme for a fun summery feel!
  • Include a variety of cups and bowls (even waffle bowls!) for your guests to enjoy. We loved using sturdy baking liners as mini cups for the kids. They’re the perfect size! Look for them in polka dot or stripes!
  • Set cones around on cake stands for a pretty (and functional!) centerpiece decoration.
  • Keep hands clean by wrapping scrapbook paper in fun patterns around the cones for a cute cone- wrapper.
  • Blue Bunny ice cream is delicious on its own but it’s always fun to include a few toppings so guests can build the ultimate sundae! We love nuts, chocolate chips, sprinkles, coconut, and cherries!
  • Line plain trays with patterned scrapbook paper for an extra punch of color and easy clean-up!
  • Fill clear glass containers with sprinkles and adorn with a bow for pretty decoration!
  • Always include a water station for guests to enjoy after all that ice cream!

Here is a list of the ice cream flavors we enjoyed at our ice cream social! You can find a full list of Blue Bunny Products here on their website and a store locator here.
