I wish I had more details to show you, but you know how it goes when you host a party. Just trust me when I say it was one sweet evening. I like hosting parties when they are small – for budget purposes and the intimacy of the guest of honor being around their closest friends. It also allows me as a host to dedicate my time, and budget to spoil those who will be spoiling one of my best friends in return.
Since this is Jennifer’s fourth baby – but it’s her FIRST girl (and last child), a small intimate baby ice cream sprinkle (get it?) for this summer night seemed like the perfect fit. I listed the party from 7 to 8:30 pm, served the ice cream around 7:30, and before 8, had her open gifts, then close with an open group prayer.
If you’re going to throw an ice cream party, here are a few tips:
- Prescoop the ice cream in the containers, place on a cookie sheet and put in the freezer before the party. Easier to serve, especially on a warm evening.
- Have popsicles as an alternative treat
- Have fun with toppings – Butterfinger, OREOS, sprinkles, whipped cream in a can, and cherries to name a few.
I don’t think this will be the last ice cream party I throw this summer!
