Make the Next Birthday a Sweet One with an Ice Cream Party!
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! Ice cream is one of the finest treats in the world, and hundreds of flavors are available. Rocky road, chocolate chip, Neapolitan, plain vanilla… there's a flavor for everyone. Ice cream isn't just a worldwide favorite dessert, it's also the perfect party theme for an upcoming birthday. With supplies from Birthday Express, you can throw a spectacular ice cream party that people will remember for years to come. Ice cream-themed decorations, activities, party favors and tableware are all available to help you make the party a blast.
Planning an amazing birthday party can be overwhelming, but the Birthday Express Ideas Blog is here to keep you calm and organized. Find ideas for decorations, food, activities, costumes, party favors and more. No matter what step of the planning process you're working on, the blog has you covered.
Begin thinking about party food early in the planning process. Ice cream is a must for your ice cream-themed party, but you'll need a main meal and snacks to go with the ice cream. Look for creative birthday food ideas online with Pinterest and party-planning blogs.
You've decided on an ice cream theme, and now it's time to incorporate that theme into every stage of your party. With help from Birthday Express, you can make sure decorations, food, entertainment and party favors all stay true to the ice cream theme.
One of the easiest ways to bring your daughter's party theme to life is through decorations. Thanks to Birthday Express, you can easily transform any space into an ice cream wonderland. Traditional decorations like balloons and banners are available and make decorating quick and easy. Specialty items designed specifically for an ice cream-themed party, like the Ice Cream Truck Stand-In, are also an option if you want to take your party decorations to the next level. Whatever you envision for your daughter's party décor, Birthday Express is here to help.
The Inflatable Ice Cream Cones are the perfect decorations to scatter throughout your birthday party. The bright colors and unique shape will leave guests feeling happy and reminiscing on memories of delicious ice cream cones from hot summer days past. The inflatable cones come in different colors and measure at 36” high.
You can't throw an ice cream-themed birthday party without an ice cream truck. If a truck won't be in your neighborhood for the party, the Splashin' Pool party Stand-In is the next best thing. The cardboard truck stand-in also makes for the perfect photo opportunity. Get pictures of party guests in the truck so you can remember the fun they had for years to come.
The dining table offers another wonderful opportunity to highlight your party's ice cream theme. Birthday Express has custom-designed tableware that will let your ice cream theme shine through. Start with the Ice Cream Party Plastic Tablecover as a fun, colorful foundation to your table setting. You can then serve the main course on the Ice Cream Party Dinner Plates and save the Ice Cream Party Dessert Plates for the cake and ice cream. Napkins are also available in the Ice Cream Party theme set to complete your table. With this spectacular set of tableware, you're one step closer to incorporating the ice cream theme into every part of your child's birthday party.
Planning fun activities is one the hardest parts of throwing the perfect birthday party. As much as you'd like to just let the kids run loose and eat ice cream until they're ready to go home, that's probably not the smartest or healthiest plan. Fortunately, Birthday Express has you covered with a selection of activities that will help your ice cream party be a success. Party classics, like the piñata, and activities specific to the ice cream theme, like a desserts-themed pillow-making kit, are available on BirthdayExpress.com so you don't have to spend any more time worrying about how to keep the kids busy.
Ice cream reminds people of summer because it's the perfect treat on a hot day. Another iconic piece of summer is the beach ball, which is why the Beach Ball Piñata will fit right into your birthday party theme. A party favorite, the piñata is always a great way to keep kids entertained.
Pillow Puff Kit
The Pillow Puff 3D Desserts Kit is the perfect arts and crafts project for the birthday girl and her friends. The kit includes supplies for a cupcake pillow, ice cream cone pillow and donut pillow. Putting the pillows together is easy and mess-free, and after they're together and stuffed, the girls can decorate with included gems.
Try incorporating these fun phrases into your invitations, DIY decorations, and other pieces of the party!
"Sometimes all you need is love… Oh wait! And ice cream."

After you have the decorations, food and activities planned, the final party element to think about is the party favors. Guests are the best part of any birthday party. They're the ones who will make the day memorable for your little girl, which is why it's crucial to show them your appreciation with a party favor. You can send each guest home with a bag of treats or a small gift as a thank you. Birthday Express even has a number of party favors to choose from that incorporate the party's ice cream theme.
The Ice Cream Sundae Lip Gloss Set combines two of every girl's favorite things.
