If you’re a regular around here you’ll know we’ve been celebrating National Ice Cream Month for all of July on Squirrelly Minds. There was the heart shaped ice cream, macaron ice cream sammies, the ice cream essentials and, of course, the printable ice cream party invitations.
So when Wayfair asked if I wanted to join in on the fun and host an ice cream party I couldn’t resist.
It was tons of fun planning the ice cream menu and decorations, and to spend time with close friends hanging out in the yard, making ice cream sundae and sandwich concoctions and gabbing away. In my opinion, the perfect way to spend a summer evening.
Wayfair was kind enough to provide materials for the ice cream party, and naturally I couldn’t resist the ever so charming and quaint Rosanna line. I mean, aren’t those tiny treat pedestals adorable? They worked perfectly for the ice cream sandwich station with the pink one holding a tower of homemade pizzelles and the yellow one topped with (*ahem*storebought) chocolate chip cookies to sandwich ice cream inbetween.
I also chose these classic ice cream bowls and the gelato dessert cups because, hello, how could I not? They instantly glam up any ice cream treat.
Rosanna is such a sweet, delicate line. I just love the pastel colours. Perfectly fitted for a garden ice cream party!
My little yellow ice cream maker got a serious workout the week leading up to the ice cream party. I made all 6 ice cream flavours, one each day, including both super creamy, sugary ones along with vegan and sugar free.
- Peanut butter w/ caramilk and pb cup chunks
- Irish Coffee
- Mint Chocolate Chip
- Nutella Coconut – coconut based
- Lavender Coconut – vegan, sugar free
- Watermelon sorbet – vegan
My fave? I can’t choose one (that’s just mean) so it’s a toss up between peanut butter and mint chocolate chip!
You can bet your bottom dollar there will be follow up posts on these ice cream recipes, followed by a DIY and free printable for the ice cream cone garland! Keep your eye out next week!
And it’s not too late to throw your own ice cream party! Print up these invites, grab a couple pints (I don’t expect everyone to be as crazy as me and make all their ice cream) and gather up your friends. It’s bound to be a good time.
