Scoop Up Some Fun with an Ice Cream Parlor

What goes better on a hot summer day than cool, delicious ice cream? Kids and adults will agree throwing an ice cream party is a great way to serve up this frozen treat! Here’s an idea from on how you can create an ice cream parlor for your party, and it’s easy to set up and organize with Avery labels and tent cards.

Step 1: Gather your supplies

Gather Avery Glossy White Round Labels (#22807 or 22817), Avery Tent Cards (#5302), sundae cups, spoons, serving jars (for ice cream and candies), chocolate-covered candies, nuts (walnuts, peanuts, pecans), marshmallows, cookie crumbs, sprinkles, syrup or fudge (chocolate and caramel), whipped cream, gummy bears (or worms!), fruit (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, bananas), mini chocolate-covered pretzels, cherries, chocolate-covered peanut butter candies and sugar or cake cones.

Step 2: Personalize ice cream bowls

Use Avery Glossy White Round Labels (#22807 or 22817). Choose your favorite design theme from a variety of fun templates on Avery Design & Print Online. Click to select a design, personalize a label for each guest and print.

Step 3: Identify your syrups

Make it easy for your guests to identify the sauces and syrups on the table. Use Avery Tent Cards (#5302), go to Avery Design & Print Online to select a design that matches or complements your ice cream bowl labels and print.

Step 4: Mark your toppings

Another way to identify the treats on the table is to create markers. Print on Avery Glossy White Round Labels, place labels back to back around a stick or straw and pop the marker into the container of toppings.

Step 5: Separate and call out certain foods

Place candies, nuts and other toppings in separate containers. Use an Avery Tent Card to identify what’s in each container. It’s a big help for guests to know what’s what, especially if they have food allergies.

Step 6: Make it an unforgettable celebration!
