I can’t believe I never blogged this party. Perhaps I had PTSD as we threw this party only 6 days after we moved into our house. Because I apparently like to punish myself. On the upside I got everything unpacked VERY fast!
Brayden is a Winter baby and I always envied our friends that could throw birthdays involving water. In reality I probably could throw Brayden swimming parties because it ends up being warm. But, there’s always that chance that it could rain. Like at his second birthday. Boy, did it rain that day!
Anyways, back to Kennedy. I saw a pink ice cream truck and ran with that theme. I mean, it was really more for me. Because I LOVE ice cream and ice cream trucks.
The cake is, of course, from Beverly’s Best Bakery and was designed to match the cake on Kennedy’s birthday invitation.
I used cotton candy to make the ice cream cone decorations on the table.
For the hanging ice cream cones I purchased small styrofoam balls and wrapped them in yarn securing with a glue fun. Then I simply tied them on strings of yarn to make a garland.
You’ll see at my parties that I love a brown paper lunch bag for favors. I printed on them simply using my home printer. I find it easier to individually feed the bags through my printer. Otherwise they get stuck.
The bags included everything needed to make your own ice cream sundae. Including a gift certificate to Baskin Robbins for a scoop of ice cream.
I used paper lanterns and scrapbook paper to make large ice cream cones to hang on the front porch. On a side note, I am SO happy we have since painted our house!
The ice cream truck we used was Frankie’s Frozen Treats. Not only are all of their treats amazing, but they are also the nicest people! And SO reasonably priced. Look them up if you are in North Orange County. Besides the truck we put out our blow up pool and a few water tables to entertain the kids. Hopefully one day we will have a pool to have real pool parties!
I love that my friend Jamie snapped this picture of Kennedy and I at the end of her party. Because what happened to my diaper wearing, aci using baby? She was completely and totally pooped. Which means it must have been a great party!
