An ice cream social is a planned gathering with a theme centered around — you guessed it — ice cream! Invite your family, friends or co-workers to enjoy a cold, sweet treat in the summer heat.
Still trying to figure out where to start? Check out Howdy’s guide to get the scoop on hosting an ice cream social.
Hosting an ice cream social is a fun party idea with only a few steps to remember. Skip the full meal and go straight to dessert!
The first step is to decide what the event is for. If you are hosting your co-workers, the supplies and overall theme will be different from a child’s birthday party. Whatever the occasion, get an idea of how many people you will invite to ensure you stock enough ice cream.
Again, your guest list can determine your party’s theme. However, some timeless options can fit any occasion.
Now that you have your theme, let’s gather supplies! You can choose from several options to hold your sundaes, from classic tulip bowls to thrifted mason jars. Next, be sure to have enough utensils, including serving spoons for the ice cream and individual spoons for all your guests. Your bowls and utensils can be as simple or as detailed for the theme as you’d like!
Fruit, chocolate and syrups — the options are endless. Go to the grocery store and grab a variety of fun toppings for the ice cream sundaes. Oh, and don’t forget sprinkles!
We all scream for ice cream! You may have some flavors in mind to supplement your theme, or maybe you prefer something simple to let the toppings steal the show. Either way, be sure to gather enough options for the whole group.
