Brooke's Ice-Cream Themed 4th Birthday- Part Two (The Party!)


After the invitations were made, it was time to get to the real party planning.

It turns out there aren't a whole lot of ice-cream-themed items on the party market right now, so as-per-usual, I decided to make everything myself!

Because Brooke's birthday just happened to fall on the weekend following my exam week, everything that I did was extremely last minute. In the end, I was pleasantly surprised with how well I did under pressure.

Exhibit A: The Cake

This sweet little ice cream cake was iced in about 15 minutes (as you can tell by the cone), but I'm pretty pleased with it. I used this cake pan, which actually worked extremely well.

Exhibit B: The Sundae Bar

I decorated the table using super bright colours, but it felt like something was missing- so I quickly whipped up a little sign. Sure, It wasn't the greatest, but it got the point across.

Everyone's favourite part of the party, as predicted, was the sundae bar. I found the cutest clear containers at Dollarama and used them to hold all sorts of candy for sundaes- crumbled Hershey's cookies & cream bars, mini sour jujubes, sour gummy worms, gummy bears, sprinkles, and milk chocolate m&ms. Also provided was a bowl of cherries, chocolate & caramel syrups, whipped cream, and cones.

Of course, I wish I would have had more time to pay attention to details, but the sundae bar was still a huge hit!

Exhibit C: Games

All of the games we played were ice creamed themed, of course. I had several planned, but with so much gift and hot-potatoe distraction, the only one that the kids got around to playing was my "pin the ice cream on the cone". Holly won, beating out all of the adults, but everyone had fun.

Overall, I think the birthday girl was happy with her ice cream themed birthday party!
