Print/DIY | Printable Ice Cream Party Invites

Printable Ice Cream Party Invitations | Squirrelly Minds
If you’ve been with Squirrelly Minds a while, you’ll know that in honour of national ice cream month, I hosted this ice cream party last July, and offered these ice cream party printables for you to throw your own. Well I’m at it again! I’m prepping (aka making buckets and buckets of ice cream) for this year’s ice cream party taking place this Saturday. And I made these invitations for you to print. Hooray!

Although I have a confession to make guys. While I made these well before inviting friends to the party, I didn’t actually use them as an invitation. Instead, I used the graphic as the header for the facebook invitation.
SHOCK
Yes guys, I’m not perfect. While I prefer sending and receiving invitations in the mail, I often use facebook events to set up parties for sake of time and convenience. Although I admit, I really wish I did send these out in the mail. I mean, who wouldn’t want an ice cream shaped invitation – complete with sprinkles! It’s like a little taste of what to come.

So if you’re like me and short on time (or your address book is a little lacking), go ahead and use the above graphic and slap it on your facebook event header. I’m in no place to judge. In fact, I’ll high five you!
But if you’re super awesome, totally with it (totally enviable), Martha-Stewart-esque, go ahead and print and DIY up these invitations! How can your guests RSVP no to receiving one of these in the mail?

Every year I make all the ice cream and set up a station for people to serve themselves and have fun with all the different flavours and toppings. This year I plan to have an ice cream sundae station (as always) plus pre-made ice cream sandwiches. My favourite ice cream made so far? Peanut butter cup. Mmmmm.
And so, because I always have to ask,

what’s your favourite ice cream?

DIY/Printables | Canada Day Sparkler and Candy Cone Free Printables

Canada Day Free Printables | Squirrelly Minds
Time to get out your red and white, Canada day is near!
So often I find fantastic printables for the 4th of July that I admire but just can’t use. When I hopped on Confetti Sunshine and saw Sara’s sparkler holders, I knew I had to make a Canadian version. Sparkle on Canada! I don’t know about you but I’ll definitely be lighting up these bad boys Tuesday night (yes, Tuesday night, start planning!).
When browsing the dollar for sparklers I saw a bag of twizzlers. My thought? “They’re red, so obviously they’re Canada day appropriate.” So I also created a “Happy Canada Day” printable cone for you to fill with treats. Yummers.
