Ice Cream Parlor Party Invites

It's here again, Cassy;s Birthday!!!  I always seem to go over the top with her parties (click here for her 1st birthday & here for her 2nd birthday).  Even more so than the rest of the girls.  Maybe it is because she has the first birthday of the year.  Or maybe it is because she is still little enough that she doesn't really care what I do.  So I can go wild on any theme I choose...so long as there are sweets involved!

This party was inspired by something my dad used to say to us when I was little, and now I say (and my kids say to each other).  The conversation would go like this:

Child:  I'm thirsty.
Dad:  I'm Friday.  Come over Saturday and we'll have a Sundae.
Child:  {rolling eyes}

Anyone else familiar with that one?
I had seen so much cute ice cream ideas on Pinterest (click here to see my party ideas board), I just had to go with an Ice Cream Parlor theme.
This lucky little girl gets TWO parties this year!
One for Daddy's family
And one for Mommy's family
Because you can never have too much ice cream, right??? 
I used the My Memories Suite to make the invitations.  It was so easy!  And they look like I spent a lot of money on custom invitations.  The best part, I made them as a 4x6 so I can just have them printed off at Costco as a standard picture.  And I just so happen to have a coupon for 50 free prints.  Score!  Adorable free invites!

Now I'm off to play with a new toy that came in the mail.  Lots more Ice Creamy goodness to come.  I promise!


  1. Very cute! There are so many fun things you can do with the decor, it will be fun to see what you come up with.


  2. What cute girls, I have two girls and love pink parties! I'm a new follower and would love to have you stop by my brand new blog and follow me, too:)

  3. I've never heard that saying before, but I love it! I have to look into memorie suites. I'd love to be able to make my own invitations. I'd love for you to link this up on Wednesday at my weekly link party at www.thenymelrosefamily.blogspot.com/2012/03/whimsy-wednesdays-2.html. I'm following.

  4. I love birthday parties too! So fun! Love this cute invitation! Thanks for linking up to Scrappy 2nd Saturdays. I hope to do an ice cream birthday party for my daughter in the future too.
