When the weather turns hot, who can resist a delicious cool creamy ice cream treat? There's nothing more casual and fun than a good old-fashioned ice cream social. Stock up on different flavors of ice cream, cones and dishes, and all the toppings and head outside! Fill an old bathtub (no chipping paint, of course) or a big metal tub with ice to keep your treats from melting, and voila!
Set up a build-your-own sundae station and let the good times roll! Make sure to have plenty of sauces and sprinkles, and don't forget the cherry for the top!
If you're feeling particularly festive, you can ask your friends to dress in early 1900's attire like handlebar mustaches, bow ties, suspenders, and derby hats for the men. Women can sport long dresses and gloves with their hair swept up. You can provide lovely decorative fans to stay cool. They work great as a party favor!
You can even send your guests home with some adorable ice cream-themed party favors to say "thanks for coming!"
