Polka Dot Ice Cream Party Ideas

HOW TO THROW A POLKA DOT PARTY

pastel-pink-sweets-tableFirst, you need ice cream, of course! After that, it’s anything goes in circles, tiny dots, sprinkles, big polka dots and lots of round shapes and color! You can tailor your color scheme to either brights for a gender neutral party or soft pastels for a girl’s birthday party.  Start with your color scheme and add in the POLKA DOTS!

toot-sweet-tableDon’t forget to create layers behind your dessert and ice cream table.  Add in some hanging paper fans, a letter banner and some pretty bunting. Even this simple Mickey Mouse table set up is stunning with the added red and black polka dots and the height of the balloons.

You can keep it simple too by creating a small decorated area with what you have in the home – a small side table works just as well as this mom did for her event below.

Don’t forget about the boys too.  Even a soccer theme can incorporate some whimsey with some coordinating black polka dots in the tableware, as seen here with the cups.

Don’t forget to stop by our party shops for all your polka dotted party decorations-

Or click on over to the PINWHEEL PRETTIES shop- we have plenty of pinwheels ready to ship that will make it to you in time for your 4th of July celebration or any party!

I’m just going to assume you have your supplies but now just need to know what to do with them and how to make your festivities an event to remember.  Let’s explore some options!

Decor

A Rosette Bouquet is a great centerpiece – get your rosettes at The Party Fetti Shop!  Throw some citronella in your Rice Mason Jar Luminary to help keep the bugs away.  Bandanas as napkins AND decorations, yes please!  Plus keep those kids busy making some Paper Ring Garland.

Food

You can also decorate with food, looks yummy!

Drunken Melon

For the adults – the Drunken Melon.  I almost added this to my melon post, but thought I’d wait for a fun holiday, like the 4th.  Cut a hole, add a bottle of your favorite vodka, let it sit overnight and enjoy!  You can also use tequila and dip the slices in sea salt.

Ice Cubes

I like to make a special brew and freeze it for ice cubes.  You can steep herbs and fruit in hot water and freeze as well.  Adding food coloring is another great touch!

Sangria

Another great summer adult only idea is Sangria.  I always have a batch in the fridge!

Games

Need a way to keep the kids busy while you enjoy those great adult treats?  A bag toss using Frisbees adds an interesting twist.  A squirt gun game is good to have around for a lot of events.  Use sidewalk chalk to set up a fun course.  Lawn Twister will also be great for adults after the kids are done and the liquor kicks in!

Balloons

A big part of the fun involved in the 4th of July is staying out after dark.  Make sure your decorations are versatile by using a glow stick.  This is also handy to help people walk along path ways, down stairs, avoid poles and your precious plants!  Hang them from trees, umbrellas or lay them on the ground and don’t use helium.

Don’t forget to get stocked up for your next event.  The Party Fetti Shop, Pinwheel Pretties, Once Upon a Home Designs, Ready Set Craft Kits and I DO Wedding & Bridal Designs have plenty to choose from!
