Another birthday party rolled around for my “little princess” granddaughter, who turned six years old.
This time she asked for an “Ice Cream Sundae” birthday party theme, so her mom, once again, went all the way out to make it exciting.
The above party invitation was created by my daughter, to get the ball rolling on the Ice Cream Sundae party theme.
Today I will share some of the party moments I captured with my camera.
There were plenty of ice cream cone type of decorations throughout the indoor and outdoor, as you can see at least two of these in the above picture.
There was a large selection of sweet snacks, before the birthday brunch.
Some of which were Rice Krispies, decked out with decorative ice creams, ice cream cones filled with jelly beans, and ice cream shaped marshmallows.
Oh yes…..there also was a nice display of fruit snacks, as well as variety of crackers, cheeses, mini kobasie (kabanos), sweet and savory dips and chips.
The Brunch Menu included Tri-Color Pasta Salad, Nirchi’s Pizza, Roast Beef Au Jus and buns, Breakfast Casserole, Quiche, and Waffles with syrup.
Here I would like to display all the “necessities” for ” Make your own Ice Cream Sundae”.
These included special ice cream bowls with matching spoons, banana split boats, and myriad of toppings to satisfy the “everything on it” and the “nut free” crowd.
All the ice cream lovers lined up nicely next to the “Make Your Own Ice Cream Sundae” station.
Good thing the weather was great, so the event took place outdoors….as some of those creations gave way to gravity….and had to be recreated from scratch….:-)
It was a great success!!
They had more fun making these sundaes, than eating them.
Many of these fancy creations got abandoned shortly afterward, to melt in the sun, while the little guests got busy running around and playing.
One of the indoor activities included decorating your own ” Ice Cream Server” hat, as you can see how intensely and diligently the girls are working on this project.
They did a beautiful job, but forgot to wear them to the Ice Cream Sundae Making Station…oh well.
Once the sweet treats depleted and the “sugar high” energy burned out, the party bunch was ready to go home for a nap.
They were sent off on their way with a colorful bag full of treats, stamped with ice cream cones (which the birthday girl decorated herself), and a nice Thank You note. They also got to keep their special ice cream bowls with matching ice cream cone spoons. Nice!
What a great party this was.
Can’t wait for another birthday party to photograph, and to share with you.
