Sticky hands, cool treats, and happy kids can only mean one thing…Summer! Let’s Pop Into Summer with a colorful popsicle party that’s easy to plan and guaranteed to make lots of extraordinary memories!
I don’t know about you, but the countdown to summer is on at our house. This morning the kids woke up and excitedly yelled that there are only 8 days of school left. Which, if I’m being honest sent me into the slightest bit of panic. Don’t get me wrong I’m excited about slower paced schedules, summer vacations and spending quality time with my kids. But, I’m not sure I’m ready for the task of keeping everyone entertained and happy, not to mention my flow of work constantly being interrupted.
While I may not be mentally prepared for summer I am 100% ready to kick off summer with an epic Pop Into Summer Popsicle party. I recently teamed up with Oriental Trading to showcase their new Popsicle party line (it is SO cute!) You can check out all the party details and products I used to create the party including a colorful DIY Popsicle Table Runner. You’ll also find the recipe for Fruit-Infused Popsicles that will be a hit all summer long.
If you are ready to host a colorful summer soiree, but you just aren’t sure where to start I’m going to help you out with my top 5 tips for hosting a simple Pop Into Summer party that the kids will love.
1. Spread the Word
Yes, you could simply send out a text or an email but in this technical day and age, it’s way more fun to get a personalized invitation to an event. Everyone is more likely to get excited about the Pop Into Summer party when they receive a colorful popsicle shaped invitation.
2. Add a Pop of Color
Bring all the brilliance and excitement of summer into your celebration with beautiful pops of color and perfectly themed popsicle decorations. This adorable popsicle party line from Oriental Trading has everything from brightly-colored tablecloths and festive signs to vibrant party favors to help you infuse color into all aspects of your celebration. Use simple supplies like balloons and popsicle sticks to make a fun DIY Popsicle Balloon Garland that will pop!
3. Keep it Simple
You don’t have to go overboard to create a fun and memorable party. Keep it simple and everyone, including you, will have more fun. All you need are popsicles, some fresh fruits and maybe a cupcake or two. Want to dress things up a bit, create mini popsicles with toothpicks and candy for a fun addition to store-bought cupcakes.
4. Fill it with Kid-Friendly Fun
Host the party at your neighboorhood pool or park for an afternoon of instant fun. Make sure you fill the party with other fun activities that fit with the party theme, like a balloon popping game, water balloons or popsicle themed crafts.
5. Treat Yo’ Self
Buying a giant bag of frozen popsicles at the grocery store will work for this celebration, but why not treat yo’ self and make homemade popsicles to enjoy. Make homemade fruit-infused popsicles or homemade orange creamsicles. Don’t forget to make some fun DIY Personalized Popsicle Holders to keep those little hands from freezing while they are enjoying their popsicles!
I’m a firm believer that you don’t have to overdo it or wait for the perfect moment to celebrate the little things. Turn an otherwise ordinary occasion into an extraordinary celebration with these simple tips for hosting your own Pop Into Summer Popsicle Party!
Whether you are lounging poolside or playing at the park, popsicles are a staple summer treat. Kick off summer with a sweet and colorful popsicle party that will have everyone reminiscing about their favorite summer treat.
