Here in upstate New York, everyone is eagerly awaiting the warm weather to arrive and stick around a bit. But, as usual, mother nature is taking her sweet old time. To show her that she can’t bring us down with her frigid windy weather and casual snow storms, I decided to have an ice cream party for
myself my boys.
I headed off to Walmart, you know, because of their every day low prices, to pick up some of the essentials for the party. While I was there, I decided to forgo the traditional napkins and picked up a canister of Wet-Nap. After all, this was a party for a 2 year old and 4 year old. Things were bound to get messy. (I used a $0.55 off coupon. You can get it here, while supplies last.)
As party time was approaching, my four year old kept reminding me “Mommy, it’s not just any party. It’s an ice cream party!” To say that he was excited would probably be an understatement.
I set up the ice cream bar, using a fun colorful bed sheet I had purchased at the thrift store for only $2 as my table cloth. It was the perfect thing to bring some bright cheeriness to our gathering.
I also made a few tissue paper flowers for more color. The back drop of my display was a chalkboard wall we have in our playroom. This made for inexpensive decorating.
Aqua washi tape was added to my neon green plastic spoons to jazz them up a bit. Super simple!
My little men had a blast with this party.
As predicted, things got pretty messy.
But nothing my two year old couldn’t clean up. The Wet-Nap made it a breeze!
So, take that mother nature! Finally, a win for us!
