Ice Cream Theme Day Wrap-Up


We had our first "Party Theme Day" on our Facebook wall yesterday and this is the wrap-up for you.  I thought you would like to have all of the ideas, fan comments and links in one convenient place.  Now it is here for you as a reference, saved and ready to go!


Above is the new collection of Ice Cream Party plates, cups and napkins now available at Polka Dot Market.


We started the Facebook "Ice Cream Theme Day" with a yummy and easy ice cream cone hat tutorial by One Charming Party (fabulous photo property of One Charming Party):



For even more inspiration, we headed over to The TomKat Studio's Etsy shop for two color-way versions of her ice cream party printables.  Choose from neapolitan pink & chocolate or summer brights:



We rounded out the tour over at One Pretty Thing with a BIG variety of ice cream theme recipes, costumes, crafts and more.  Here's just a sample of one of the many unique ice cream themed ideas:




And because I really love you, we visited The White Library for a gorgeous Neapolitan Ice Cream 1st Birthday Party with amazing inspiration and photography:




I can't forget the free printable coloring pages for the kids, so we visited Twisty Noodle to see all of their ice cream theme coloring pages (bookmark this site).

Lastly, we took a poll of your favorite ice cream toppings!  Here's what you love:
  • Hot fudge
  • Crushed Oreos
  • Nuts
  • Brownie crumbles
  • Butterfinger
  • Rainbow sprinkles
  • Heath bar
  • Warm chocolate chip cookies
  • Coconut flakes
  • Chocolate chips
  • Toffee
  • Chopped almonds
  • Gummy bears
  • Fresh fruit
  • Reese's cup
  • Whipped cream
  • Hot caramel
  • Marshmallow
  • YUMMY!  (This is a great list to get you started to make-your-own ice cream sundae bar)

This was way too much fun.  My idea is to host regular party theme days on Facebook and then compile them here for you so you can use our blog as a party reference go-to guide.  Stay tuned!

Be sure to catch us on Facebook for the next party "Theme Day":  www.facebook.com/polkadotmarket

And be sure to send us your ice cream party photos to polkadotbirthday@gmail.com.  :)

  1. I'm planning a Sweet Shoppe Party next Saturday for my daughter and we are using anything from candy to cupcakes to ice cream. I was so excited yesterday when I seen the ice cream cone hats you posted from One Charming Party, super-cute. I have been stuck on what to do for party hats because I couldn't find anything even close to this theme. Thanks so much for posting such a great idea. I can't wait to see the kids with them on. I also loved the idea of using the cupcakes in the cones from One Pretty Thing, so cute! Again, thanks and I look forward to your next blog and posts! :)

  7. I like to "Personalized Stationary". I would use it to write thank you notes to my students at my school. It looks awesome.

  8. Love the idea of creating a color scheme on food. and the neapolitan colors are great together. I am usually inspired by locations I've been, China, Italy, Hawaii for my color schemes. I am definitely going to be looking at food a little differently now. Thanks for the great idea.
