Ice Cream-Themed Birthday Party

Anytime is the perfect time for ice cream, but if your daughter has a summer birthday, then an ice cream-themed birthday party is especially adorable and refreshingly cool. July is National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of the month is National Ice Cream Day. Here's the scoop on a simple and sweet party.

Sweet Sprinkles Leotard

Can you believe @corihenderson's daughter finished the cone all be herself? We're impressed!

We launched our adorable Sweet Sprinkles Leotard along with some ice cream and donut designs as part of our Sweet Treat Leotard Collection. If you'd prefer anything in another color or style, email us at hello@leotardboutique.com so we can customize your request. We're not exactly Baskin Robbins, but we could offer 23 flavors.

Ice Cream Cone Leotard

I scream! You scream! We all scream for ice cream!

We created our Ice Cream Cone Leotard for girls who love ice cream. As you can see from her personalized leotard, this is Harbor. She's been enchanting us with her expressions since she was just a tot at @harbortime. It's so fun to follow along as your kids grow from babies through early childhood. It all happens in the blink of an eye, or the shutting of eyes as she screams for ice scream.

Tutu

birthday tutu

Birthday girls and tutus are like ice cream and sprinkles: They are made for each other. We love Belle + Whistle's (@bellenwhistle) fluffy, modern tutus handmade in Florida by mom and photographer, @laurapalaciosphoto.. This birthday ensemble features our leotard, a beautiful, heirloom quality hair bow by @wunderkin_co, and shoes by @kepnerscottshoes.

Shoes

It's good mojo to wear shoes made by the oldest surviving children’s shoe manufacturer in the United States on your birthday, especially when they are this adorable. Kepner Scott Shoe Co. has been handcrafting quality children’s footwear since 1888. Wow! They have a lot of candles on their cake. Their Instagram account, @kepnerscottshoes, has not been around that long.


Party Package Printables

These customizable ice cream party printables from PolyDot Print Specialists are designed by the talented Aracely from Minted and Vintage. The package includes the following (digital files): invitation, My First Year poster, candy bag toppers, dessert table backdrop. You can purchase the package here.

Ice Cream Cookie Kit

Frost My Cookie's delightful ice cream-shaped sugar cookies look beautiful and taste delicious. You can order a batch of pre-made cookies for guests to munch on during the party or a purchase a "Cookie-to-go" kit so your party guests can have fun frosting their own cookies as a party activity.


Party Favor + Goodwill

We're collaborating with Beverly's Birthdays, a non-profit based in Pittsburgh, that provides birthday cheer for children experiencing homelessness and families in need. They distribute birthday gift baskets to over 4,300 children annually. Kids can “shop” for new clothing—such a need when you are experiencing homelessness—in their mobile fashion truck.


Their Wishlet Bracelet is made with cotton strands and a tiny silver star charm. Tie it around your wrist and make a wish. The wish is granted when the bracelet falls off on its own. The profit from the sales of this bracelet benefit Beverly's Birthdays.

Ice Cream Plates

Ellie and Piper Party Boutique curates the most adorable items for parties. They are based in New Hampshire, just like we are. We love these ice cream plates designed by MeriMeri and sold by Ellie and Piper Party Boutique

Marie Kondo would love the idea of Minted and Vintage. Rather than purchasing cake stands and other knick knacks to create a dazzling display for a one-time event like a birthday party, this company creates the sweetest birthday collections that you can rent and return. Their Vintage Ice Cream Package includes linen, an ice cream cart, a hand-dipped ice cream metal sign, vintage toy cash register, cake stands, porcelain waffle cone cups, acrylic mini cone holder (holds 6), acrylic sugar cone holder (holds 18), hobnail cake pop holder (holds 6-7), glass jars for ice cream cones.

Before you get too excited, Minted and Vintage rents locally
within Los Angeles County, Orange County, Inland Empire, and San Diego County. We had to include them because we know so many of our customers live in that area, and because we love this company.

2ND BIRTHDAY!

I'm super crazy about my daughter's birthday parties, and don't just trust anyone. When I recieved our first leotard in the mail, I was absolutely blown away! The fabric is top of the line, and the fit is perfection. I am so excited to have Lilly sport this at her party, and will absolutely be a return customer. Keep up the great work!!

LOVED IT!

This leotard was shipped and delivered perfectly! I should have know from the hand-written thank you note that this company was special! My daughter looked absolutely darling in the leotard we purchased for her to wear. The quality is superior, the fabric stays intact even after washes, and the color is vibrant. We will be shopping again soon!
