Celebrate National Ice Cream Month with an Ice Cream Party

by Shea Homes Arizona on July 8, 2016

National Ice Cream Month
July is National Ice Cream month! What better reason to grab a cup or cone, invite the neighbors over and celebrate! Here are five fun ways to enjoy this cool sweet treat with family and friends.


Set the tone for your ice cream party with creative invites shaped like ice cream cones. Download free printable invites here. (Compliments of snapcreativity.com)

Party Decorations

Simple ceiling decorations, paper lanterns, banners, streamers, and garland can make the party more festive and add instant ambiance. Throw in a couple of Inflatable Ice Cream Cones and a Pool Party Stand which makes a great photo opportunity.


Popular flavors include Vanilla, Cookie MonsterButterfinger,  Smores and last but not least, Chocolate! Typically, we eat ice cream out of a plain bowl or cones, but here are some new ideas to spice the party up a little. Are you a fan of vanilla ice cream? Why not try and pair it with the Chocolate Chip Cookie Bowls, Sprinkle Bowls, or even Churro Bowls.


And here comes the fun part — GAMES! Who said you can only play Bingo with numbers? Ice cream Bingo uses pictures and symbols instead of numbers. Or try Pin the Cherry on the Sundae, a new spin on Tail on the Donkey. If you’re not afraid of a little mess, try Blindfolded Ice Cream Eating.

Party Favors

Treat your guests with a parting gift as a thank you for coming. Ice Cream Sundae Lip Gloss, Ice Cream Lip Balm, or Ice Cream Pens are the perfect sweet treat.

A great way of enjoying ice cream is within the walls of your new home.  If you’re interested in purchasing a new home, come see the options available in the following areas:
