The Theme

What’s great about throwing an ice cream social is that you can make it as simple or as elaborate as you want. You can have people over to celebrate a birthday, the 4th of July, or some other occasion.

You also want to make sure that you have a place picked out, whether that’s at your house or at a nearby park.

Set a Date

Setting a date is probably the most challenging part of throwing an ice cream social. People are so busy nowadays that it’s almost impossible to get everyone’s schedule to align. If you’re doing a last-minute ice cream social, forget it.

You need to plan about 3-4 weeks in advance at minimum to get on people’s calendars. You’ll want to look at the community calendar in your area to make sure that there are no conflicts.

An alternative is to align your event with a community event. For example, if there’s a big festival in your town, you can invite people over before or after the event.

The Invitations

You can’t have an ice cream social without inviting people to it. Your invitations need to be smart and compelling to get people to come.

You want to make sure that people know the time, date, how to RSVP and by when so you can plan for accordingly.

There are many ways to send out invitations. You can create a Facebook event, Evite, or print out invitations and hand them out.

The Ice Cream

You can’t have a killer ice cream social without great ice cream. There are a few things to keep in mind as you’re planning this part of the ice cream social. The first is preventing it from melting during the social. You’ll need to have access to proper refrigeration and storage.

The second is the amount of ice cream you’ll need, which will depend on how many people RSVP. You’ll also need to figure out if you’re going to offer sundaes, banana splits and the type of flavors.

A great alternative to figuring all of that out yourself is to hire an ice cream catering company. That will take a lot of the stress off of you.
