HOW TO HOST AN INSTAGRAM-WORTHY ICE CREAM SOCIAL
Summer might be slowing down, but that doesn’t mean the good times have to stop. After all, August has only just begun! So, look on the bright side—the pint is still half full. Pop that top wide open and call your closest friends. The weekend is almost here (Fri-yay for cheat day!), giving you the perfect excuse to get everyone together for one last hoorah before summer ends. If planning a “party” isn’t your thing, don’t stress. We’re sharing simple tips for hosting the perfect ice cream social so you can focus on soaking up sweet times with your friends.
MEET US AT THE SUNDAE BAR
When we host a party, we like to go all out! Our ice cream social go-to? A simple, but oh so sweet, ice cream bar stocked with everything guests need to build their perfect sundae. Looking for some inspiration on what toppings to get? Here are five ice cream sundae recipes your friends will love!
When it comes to ice cream sundaes, there are no rules—so, get creative and have fun. In addition to your selection of toppings, consider adding a few different flavors of soda to transform your ice cream sundae bar into an ice cream float station. No sweet idea is off the table!
A little decor goes a long way! Place each of your tasty toppings into mason jars or boujee buckets, and sprinkle in a little creativity with fun labels and props for an over-the-top touch—the “extra” cherry on top. We’re loving the spread our friends Couple in the Kitchen recently came up with for their ice cream sundae bar—that felt letter board, though!
PRO TIP: Keep warm glasses of water handy to place your ice cream scoopers in. This will make it easier to achieve those instagram-worthy scoops that will make everyone stop mid-scroll and say, YUM!
NO CONES, NO BOWLS, NO PROBLEM
Crunched for time? Turn your ice cream social into a pint party, instead. With seven delicious delicious flavors to choose from, our pints are perfect for sharing (…or not)—meaning everyone can pick out their favorite flavor to enjoy. Just don’t forget the spoons!
TREAT YOUR FRIENDS TO THE MIDWEST’S BEST
Of course every ice cream social needs ice cream, but don’t settle for anything less than the best! Here at Hudsonville, creating creamy, delicious and exciting new flavors is what we’re all about. From the world’s best French Vanilla to the creamiest, dreamiest Dairy Free dessert you’ll ever try, we have something for everyone to enjoy!
