Toddler Ice Cream Birthday Party

My Mommy Squader, Amanda, recently threw her little one an Ice Cream Shoppe themed Birthday Party for her 2nd Birthday.  She did such a great job and incorporated such cute details to make the party a smashing success. 

The sign to greet guests

Ice Cream Banner puchased from Michaels.

PB&J's cut into ice cream cone shapes!

The toppings table!

Such an adorable twist on Pom Poms.  Add a Ice Cream Cone and just hang from the ceiling!

So cute, right?!  Here's how you make the pom poms.

Cones or Cups, your choice! The printables are from Pixle Perfection Designs

These were cupcakes in ice cream cones!  So cute and actually very functional as an easy way for toddlers to eat cupcakes.  Tutorial coming soon!

Yum, the toppings bar!

Cookie Pops

Ice Cream Cone Shaped Rice Crispie Treats

The perfect toddler-size picnic Table that my Handy Husband constructed for our daughter's Pancakes and Pajamas Party.  The table was such a hit, it's being passed around the playgroup for parties. 

The Place Setting

The Favors:  Ice Cream Scoops for the adults and Ice Cream cups for the kids with little ice cream shaped toys inside.

And last but not least, the cute Bday girl with her ice cream cone shirt.  This was from Etsy but Amanda said she couldn't give the shop a recommendation due to poor communcation and order speed.  It did turn out adorable though!

And that's how you throw an Ice Cream themed birthday party!

  8. The cupcakes in the ice cream cones are adorable! do you cook the cupcake in cone? Or just put the cupcake in after? Guess I will just have to wait for the tutorial! :)

  9. So many cute ideas! Love the pom-pom cones from the ceiling.

  10. That turned out adorable! I love the pom pom ice cream cones!

  11. This is just adorable!! You made everything perfect. :) I love the rice krispy treats and the cookie pops.

  12. SOOOO stinkin perfect! (have you sent this to Design Dazzle?) Do it A-SAP!

  13. What a cute party! My little girl is an Audrey too.. and I loved seeing her name everywhere. hehe

  14. This is so adorable. I like the twist on the pom-poms. How did you shape the rice crispy treats? When they were still warm or after they were chilled? I'd like to do shaped treats for my daughter's upcoming birthday party.

  15. Thank you everyone for your sweet comments!

    Nicole, I'll try to get the table tutorial up within the next week or so. I keep asking the Handy Husband :-)

    Brian and Kendra, just fill the cones with your cupcake batter 3/4 of the way and bake as you would in a cupcake tin :-)

    Amnah, definitely let the rice crispy treats cool all the way and then just use a cookie cutter. It helps to spray the inside of the cookie cutters with some non-stick cooking spray so they slide out easier :-)

  16. Absolutely adorable. I bet everyone was blown away by all of the incredible details. I know I am!

  17. Saw your party on Party Like a Kid. I love it even more because I also threw an ice cream birthday party for my daughter Audrey in September.

    you did an awesome job

  18. Can you tell me where you bought the styrofoam ice cream cups? These are perfect for serving.

  19. wow! I have never seen an ice cream themed party before! It's awesome!

  20. I know this is a crazy request....but I'm doing an ice cream party next week also for my daughter with the exact same line you bought. But since I bought mine last year and they aren't available anymore I am needing one more of the large polka dot bowls. If you still have yours would you be willing to sell it to me? I would be forever grateful. Love your party too!

  21. What an amazing party that must have been. I am throwing an ice cream themed party for my daughters first birthday party in a couple of months. Would you mind telling me where you bought the ice cream scoops and ice cream cones for the favors? TIA

  22. its looks like a wonderful birthday,music,dance and some kids birthday party games are also necessary to make a birthday party memorable...

  23. Can you tell me how you attached the cones to the tissue paper pom poms? So cute!

  24. Awesome party and just what I am looking to do for my soon to be three year old! I have a few questions...
    1. What did you use for the cone of the pom poms? (is it a real cone?)
    2. Where did you find the banner? The link of the favor tags, etc. is closed due to the death of her daughter. This statement is listed when you click on the link you provided :-(

    I'm sure I'll have more questions as I head out to the store tomorrow!

  25. You did such a great job!! I love it! I just created an inspiration board on my blog and this gives me some added ideas. Thanks!

  26. How do you connect the ice cream cone to the pom pom?

  27. Where did you buy the table covers?

  28. thanks for inspiration. thinking about doing an ice cream pool party in October 2013 for my daughter's 5th and son's 2nd birthdays :)
    p.s. where did you get your favors??? cute!
