First Up, Ice cream

Believe it or not, choosing ice-cream flavors is much easier than it seems. Stick with a traditional vanilla and chocolates of the bunch, they’re the perfect canvas for your kids to experiment with toppings.  Don’t forget to pick up a few dairy free options like sherberts, for those kids with allergies as well! To help children and adults alike, try pre scooping your ice cream in bowls in advance for a hassle free clean up.

Toppings

Sky’s the limit. Seriously. According to Kristin Appenbrink, the ice cream queen, there are four categories of toppings; healthy (berries, and dried fruit), sauces (caramel, chocolate fudge etc.), sweets (sprinkles, gummy bears, chocolate chips, etc.), and crunchy (nuts, cereal, coffee bits, etc.).

Try going all out and having a little bit of each category,  a clever way to serve them are in our lovely mason jars. To avoid misunderstandings, label each topping with our chalkboard signs.

Cones, bowls, or … ?

As much as we love a crunchy cone, it can be slightly hard to eat and talk at the same time without your scoop melting on you. A perfect way to make sure that you don’t get sticky hands, are our lovely dessert bowls and glittered cups, pair them with a spoon and you’re set to go. Not only will they help you socialize during the event but hold more toppings than a traditional cone.

If this option doesn’t float your boat, try literally making floats! Add sprite to any sherbert or rootbeer to any vanilla based ice cream for a vintage mix. Your kiddos will have so much fun watching the bubbles as well as the taste of this fun fizzy drink.

Decorations

To make your bar into a downright crowd pleaser add a few DIY accents. For example, using ordinary balloons (honeycombs or pom poms also apply) and scrap paper, you can craft lovely suspending ice creams or even make a charming garland out of ice cream popsicles and glittered foam sheets

Or our adorable balloon kits are always perfect to set the ball rolling, while plastic tablecloths and table skirts will save your nerves.

If you feel like adding a little bit more style try using  an old bookshelf for a vintage style or a few fun school desks instead of a table. If you’re  kicking off a rustic theme, or going for a classic pastel setup try these links.


This event won’t just kick off the school year on the right foot but it’s perfect to find out who’s carpool you can get in on!!! Happy Scooping!
