The Prettiest Pastel Popsicle Party

May 20 2014 - 12:02pm

It's pretty much impossible to go wrong with an ice cream-themed birthday party [1], but we have a feeling its something you may have seen before. When we came across this fun spinoff, a popsicle party [2] thrown by Sam at Dunne With Style [3] over on 100 Layer Cakelet, it was love at first sight! The icy twist on a classic incorporates sorbet hues in everything from the edibles to the decor, resulting in a cohesive, summery look. Check out all of the beautiful details, and get inspired for your own child's warm-weather birthday bash.

Make Mine a Macaron

While popsicles were the sweet in the spotlight, party planning mom Sam didn't discriminate — macarons were one of the other treats on display.

Personalized and Pretty

Wooden popsicle sticks may seem mundane, but head over to Etsy and you'll discover there are plenty of artisans who make special themed sticks or even custom ones with your child's name.

The Overview

Etsy shop Ham & Pea Design and Paperie [20] specializes in printables and paper party design, and they were Sam's source for having the popsicle backdrop for the dessert table made.

Cool Me Down

Infused water adds a festive touch to what would otherwise be a basic beverage. Steal this idea, and coordinate the colors of your fruity additions with your party's palette.

Because it wouldn't be a birthday party without a cake, this incredible tiered concoction [27] was made by Studio Cake.
