Here’s Everything You Need to Throw a Kickass Ice Cream Party

Because ice cream is delicious. That is all.    

These days, we get invited to so many parties—housewarming, 40th birthday, retirement, anniversary, you name it. And if you’re a parent, fuggedaboutit. You’re going to more birthday parties than you even thought was possible. And it’s, well, exhausting.

But a couple of years ago, when I first moved onto my street, my new neighbor threw an ice cream party on her lawn…just because. There was no purpose, there were no gifts. Just adorable bowls, delicious ice cream and lots and lots of toppings. And you know? It was a blast. Parents were relaxed and chatting, kids were running around and it was plain old fun. And I’ve taken the baton since and hosted a few of my own. Sometimes on a weekday afternoon as a way for my mom friends and I to tire the kids out before bedtime. Other times with my family, just as a way to stay on each other’s calendars. Point being: Ice cream parties are a great way to catch up with family and friends, kiddos love it, and oh, ice cream. Duh. Below I’ve rounded the ten you things you need to hit it out of the park—toppings not included!
