The best way to plan an ice cream social is to make sure you have quality ice cream. Jeni’s a wonderful brand and if you can get your hands on some, it won’t disappoint and not to mention the packaging is truly Instagram worthy.
Waffle cones are a must for a classic ice cream social party. They are a great way to reduce clean instead of using bowls.
Be sure to give your guests plenty of options for ice cream toppings. Use your favorite champagne or wine glasses to organize these treats.
You can’t have ice cream without the right utensils, be sure to place your ice cream scoopers on a coaster or mat to protect your linens or table.
A stylish tray or fabric is the perfect place to organize your ice cream station. It leaves everything organized and is easy for clean up.
During the summer, ice cream is essential but can get messy quickly with rising temperatures in the South. Be sure to have plenty of napkins on hand for your guests to utilize and the more stylish the better.
