It’s National Ice Cream Day – Have a Party by the Pool!

In Party Planning by Platinum Pools

This coming Sunday, July 22nd, is National Ice Cream Day.  The weather seems promising in South East Texas, and there is nothing that cools the body like sweet and refreshing ice cream.   We don’t know about you, but we always find any excuse to have it!  Another great reason to use your swimming pool to host an Ice Cream Pool Party.

It is easy to put together a party, especially with kids.  Enjoy decorating the backyard and select those ice cream flavors everyone loves.  It is recommendable to have a table high enough for the kids to reach the treats, but not too low to make adults bend over.

Have bowls, cones, and spoons, comfortable enough to fit in tiny hands that are easy to use, and not dangerous.  Also, have a tray dispenser to place the toppings.   Metal containers are great to set the ice cream and whipped cream.  Instead of ice, why not freeze water balloons?  It will keep it nice and cold for a longer time.

Now that you have all you need to feed your guests, let’s get ready to set up and organize the best ice cream party of the summer.

Decorations First

We already suggested taking balloons, filling them with water, and putting them in the freezer. You can also find available printable images of ice cream cones or popsicles right from the internet. Select any color and graphic, print them, and then cut them out. This way, the decorations will be unique, although this will not be the only advantage. If children are actively involved in both the assembly and the development of the party, they will enjoy the party even more.

Toppings and Cones

What makes the ice cream pool party interesting are the toppings; from mini cookies, jellybeans, chocolate chips, fruit, cherries, and whipped cream; all ready to fuse with the ice cream flavor of choice. Keep toppings in separate bowls with their serving spoons. It’s also essential to keep the cones in a glass container with a lid to keep them fresh and not lose their crunchiness.  Last, but not least, decorate the ice cream table with the paper cut out images or use an ice cream themed tablecloth.

The Swimming Pool

With the new wave of shaped pool floats, it makes it easier to decorate your oasis. Ice cream cones, ice cream sandwiches, and popsicles are some of the most popular pool floats today. These types of pool floats are now more accessible to get online or at your local pool accessory store. These will go very well with the ice cream theme. Don’t be surprised if any games come out due to having these fun ice cream pool floats.

We are sure that your ice cream pool party will be a great success. Have a sweet summer and Happy National Ice Cream Day!
