One of the best things about summer is getting together with friends and family. What better way to get together than with an ice cream social! Did you ever do these growing up? I remember loving the ice cream topping bars that we had at nearly every summer party. They were filled with things that you could pile on top of your ice cream: candy, fudge sauce, sprinkles, fruit.
Ice cream is a great way to cool down on a hot summer day and hosting an ice cream social for your friends, family, or neighbors is a great way to get everyone together. This free printable ice cream social invitation can get you started on your way to throwing the perfect summer ice cream social!
How to Throw the Perfect Ice Cream Social
- Keep things relaxed. There’s a lot of pressure these days to throw perfect parties. That’s great if you enjoy that. If it stresses you out like it does to me, just relax and embrace the imperfect. I’ve found my kids don’t care if the decorations are perfect but they do care if I’m running around stressed out and crazy.
- Have everyone help out. It’s always more fun when everyone helps out. Make your ice cream social a pot luck and have everyone bring their favorite ice cream topping or favorite flavor of ice cream. It will be a fun way to get to know everyone’s favorites and all the pressure won’t be on you.
- Have some simple games. Games are a great way to keep the kids occupied so the adults can talk and they can also be a great way to get everyone talking if you have a great group game.
