Ice Cream Party II

Just a few more pics from our Breyers ice cream party last week...I apologize for not having any people pics but I was a little busy scooping out ice cream for 25 people.

the favor bags with pink ribbon & ice cream cone cookie cutters were for the Mom's

Ice Cream Party

Everyone had a "sweet" time at the ice cream party! We had yummy ice cream bars, sandwiches, and sundae bar complete with all the toppings! It all started with these delicious ice cream sandwiches from Breyers...

for the sundaes, you have to start with the cherries

mini m&m's

strawberry whoppers

don't forget the chocolate chips & marshmallows

& all the other yummies

especially the gummy worms & bears

& candy dipped cones to hold all the creamy goodness

mini ice cream garland made with wrapping paper and stickers

sweet marshmallow twists

candy covered rice krispie pops

yum-my table centerpiece

It was such a fun & easy party to put together! The kids had a great time making sundaes with all their favorite toppings!

Ice Cream Cone Bling

The ice cream party is now officially over & I am completely exhausted. But I had to share with you the favorite treat of the party. For some reason, the ice cream cones were a HUGE hit & everyone LOVED them!

I simply took store bought cones, dipped them in candy melts, and threw on a few pearlized sprinkles.

It is such an easy way to dress up your ice cream cone! I promise to post a few pictures from the party this weekend but for now, I am crawling up to bed & hoping to get a few hours of sleep (with sweet dreams of ice cream of course).

Music Pops

One of the giveaways Breyers sent with their ice cream party pack was free music downloads. I wanted to incorporate the gift cards into our theme so I created music pops.

the tag will read: please enjoy a few bars of music...okay, okay, I know it's a little corny but I can't resist!

Ice Cream Cups

I was at the grocery store picking up ice cream toppings & look what I found...

stick these right in the freezer & the liquid gel freezes & keeps all your yummy frozen drinks deliciously cold (& could not be a MORE perfect addition to our ice cream party!)

Sex & The City 2 Cocktails

Are any of you going to Sex & The City 2 party? I am not sure which is more important, who you are watching SATC 2 with or what you are drinking!? There's nothing like a girls night out with your best girlfriends & a few yummy cocktails.

Skyy Vodka has created a whole new line of SATC 2 cocktails that look as fabulous as Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha & Miranda.

we could all use a little of Samantha's Blonde Ambition

Mix SKYY pineapple vodka with lime and triple sec with a dash of clear Crème de Cacao and garnished with a lemon peel twist.

Visit Skyy's website for more recipes & be sure to enter their SATC 2 contest while you are there (but just so you know, I plan on winning because I desperately need a wardrobe makeover & oh, a trip to New York would be fab-u-lous!)
