Ice Cream Bar Party!

My daughter turned 5 in May & as always I let her pick what kind of a party she wanted.  She chose an ice cream party & I went to town!
I decided to have an outdoor Ice Cream Bar! The best part is that it was not all that expensive! I found the amazing, FREE printables that I used for the toppings, labels and cups here. I also found most of the ice cream sundae dishes at a garage sale and borrowed mason jars from my family!

 I made Melonade...it was so refreshing!
And I never pass up an opportunity to make some hand stamped silverware! So for the occasion I made spoons to go with the ice cream toppings: Chocolate, Caramel & Hot fudge! YUM!

My favorite part was the homemade Italian soda station! I made Raspberry & Mango flavored Italian Soda's for all the guests! They were so yummy! 

 My Dad with his Grand kids...My niece Audrey, Lofton, Brooklyn & Lucy! {love}
It was such a fun day! 

And because I think you HAVE to try the Italian Soda's...here's the recipe:

  • Fill the bottom of a Mason Jar with Ice
  • Add 1/4 cup Torani Syrup (there are so many flavors)
  • Fill the jar with Sparkling Mineral Water (I used Perrier)
  • Top with Redi Whip & a cute Paper Straw
  • ENJOY!

And the EASY Melonade:
I simply used Country time Lemonade mix & added chunks of watermelon! Easy Peasy!

I will be linking up to these great Parties!

Jennifer @JMDesigns said...

What a fabulous idea! My daughter's birthday is in December, which doesn't lend itself to an outdoor ice cream party, but I love this idea so much, I think you've just inspired me to give her a "Just because it's Summer" party!

Thanks for sharing these amazing ideas and super cute party. We also hosted an ice cream party for my son and his friends this last weekend, and I used both the drink ideas you gave above: Melonade and Italian Soda. I LOVED the Italian Soda...was a big Hit.
