One year, on the Sunday before school started, my children hosted an ice cream social for all their friends in the neighborhood. We printed invitations on my computer – nothing fancy, just using clip art – and drove around delivering them a few days in advance.
On the day of the event, I set up a table under a tree in our yard, and lined up vanilla and chocolate ice cream, lots of sauces and toppings, plus whipped cream and a bowl of maraschino cherries – my dd’s favorite part!
It was a fairly simple, low key get together, but made all the kids so happy.
That’s why finding a blogpost about hosting an ice cream social caught my eye. It’s a great theme this time of year. If you’d like to host one for your child, take a look at all the photos on the PenandPaperFlowers blog for lots of inspiration. My favorite item is the garland made with ice cream cones and tulle poms as the scoop of ice cream.
