Best Kids Parties: Ice Cream Picnic

Hot, hot, summer weather, a desire to show off my new front yard, brought the whole party outdoors for a picnic style celebration. Not to mention the horror of kids dripping ice cream all over my freshly mopped floors!

Everything was awesome, except for the wind that played havoc with my table arrangements and lovingly-created garlands!

We started with kiwi “chips and dip” and sandwiches, then quickly moved on to the main event of icecream. Complete with waffle cones, sauces, sprinkles and gummy bears! My mother brought some oliebollen from the Pukekohe Farmer’s Market (literally “oil balls” in Dutch, but oh so much better than that sounds!) which went down pretty quickly.

I had a great time picking out some photo highlights of our little girl's first year to string up between the trees. It is lovely to have some memories of such a busy year now lying all about the house to make me stop and smile!

Sticky fingers (and more) were washed off in the paddling pool…and finally it was time for cake!

Thanks, Jolene!
