Here is what Melissa had to say about planning the party- ”This past weekend was my twins’ 5th birthday party! They decided on an ice cream theme…as we started planning it kind of took on a “happy” theme too! We have been working on a few new illustrations, so we did a new one for this party {available here}.

We wanted the party to be playful, colorful and of course happy so we choose pinks, peach and mint green as a party palette. We made a small sweet table covered with a pink and white polka dot ruffled table cloth. We hung colorful paper poms and an made an “oh happy day” glittered bunting garland to go above the table! We filled the table with chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes with two birthday cupcakes topped with our diy straw birthday candles and homemade marshmallows with fringe toppers! We also made ice cream cone cake pops and our favorite tiny tim cookies. Finally, we displayed a mini birthday cake on my pink milk glass pedestal complete with the little clothes pin cake topper we made.

One of our very favorite aspects to the party was the diy ice cream cone chandelier! {diy tutorial here} Our sweet friend and diy correspondent, Katie, created this project for us and we absolutely adore the way all of the different colored ice cream cones looked hanging on the white chandelier! Although we wanted to keep them all to ourselves, we let each little girl choose one to take home! But we had a few extra to keep ♥! We loved how the girls all put them around their necks…ice cream necklaces!

Since this was of course an ice cream party, we also set up a little diy ice cream topping parlor. We made an over-sized cupcake flag that said “make your ice cream happy” and coordinating ice cream topping flags that we put on paper straws and stuck into the toppings. We hung a big vanilla colored pom with peach fringe over the shelf. We took white ice cream cups and taped wooden “i ♥ ice cream spoons” on them with striped washi tape! The girls got to make their own sundaes, which they loved! Then they got to fill up their bakery boxes with treats to bring home!”
