Ice Cream Inspired Party Details:
This is what Ana said about planning the party- “Just a week ago our son “Juju” turned 3 years old. I literally can’t believe how quickly the time is passing by. So a month in advance I started to prepare for his celebration, choosing a theme based on his favorite desert – ice cream! I found a pretty backyard at Sofitel Hotel restaurant and decided to make a brunch style birthday, bringing entertainment for kids.
I hired Elza, Batman and Magician from Giggles Factory in LA to keep kids busy. And I thought of those kids who might have less interest in those characters by having a play duh station with ice cream bowls and utensils that I found on Amazon. They loved it! Perfect for the 3 year old age group of friends!
I always say to my friends, that the most important part of decoration of any party is having a beautiful and delicious desert stand! After going through some ice cream stand rental companies, I couldn’t find what i had in my mind, so to keep things in a budget, I asked my handy friend to get supply from home depot, and based on my sketch, my ice cream desert cart came to live! I went to the fabric market in Downtown LA, and found a perfect fabric for the roof for $8, that was a great addition! I am also quite a collector of cake and desert stands, so it was easy task to fill them with all these beautiful and freshly baked deserts from Baby Beas LA ! Main cake was turquise color with pastel color mix confetti on the bottom, and had this waffle ice cream shape cake on top with pink color cream dripping ( like if it would a real ice cream melt). I love cake pops, kids love them, they are easy to eat, and look gorgeous on the desert table. So I found this stand from Etsy , BZBuilds that fitted all 36 mix color cake pops!
I ordered tassel garland from my favorite Easy store of Homemadexojules, and attached it to a stand for a festive look, and I attached a honeycomb ball and cut a waffle shape from a sheet of paper and attached with stickers to a stand to make it look like an ice cream.
Throughout the space I had fun ice cream props , that I rented from Chakoda Design in LA.
Another main area for decor is dining tables. I had confetti spread around, gorgeous paper plates, cups, party hats, and straws from Meri Meri brand. The main accent were these gorgeous 3 helium filled balloons from Balloon Celebration in LA, that i decorated with custom made tassels from Homemadexojules from Easy store.
Everyone had the best time: adults and kids! On their way out, kids picked up the gift that I wrapped myself, it was a book about Sharing an Ice Cream by Mo Willems. I used a turquoise color wrapping paper and used a hot glue to attach those soft balls, and regular glue to stick the waffle shape paper.
It was a party to remember!!!!
