Happy weekend you guys! It’s taken me longer than expected to get the photos from my daughter’s 7th birthday edited, but I finally got to it yesterday. That’s one of the things I love about having an extra day off during the week. I feel like I get caught up on so many little projects which is always a good feeling right?!
So last month we celebrated Ice Cream Beanie Boo party style for my oldest love. If you’re not familiar with beanie boos, they’re those trendy TY stuffies with the large eyes that most kids 10 and under are loving right now. We tied in ice cream because it’s my daughter’s favorite treat!
We had two parties in one day and the first portion of her celebration was held at her favorite park with some of her little friends.
We kept the first party simple with Beanie Boo stuffed animal decorations, balloons, and a fun treasure hunt, that resulted in a beanie boo prize for each of our party guests.
We served homemade chocolate and vanilla cupcakes with a strawberry vanilla bean cream frosting, that I garnished with mini ice cream cones. Dairy Free.
Party plates, napkins, cups and straws can be found in my shop!
At the end of our first celebration, we had a local ice cream truck show up to surprise our party goers. A special thank you to Sugar Shack Ice Cream for being so kind and making a sweet appearance!!
Cotton candy popsicles + beanie boos for the win.
Our second celebration with family and close friends was held back at our home. I put together a simple dessert table with an ice cream themed backdrop in our color scheme of pastel pink and aqua with gold/silver accents.
A silver 7 balloon, and custom confetti balloons added a fun element to our table, along with pink and white honeycomb balls that I turned into ice cream cones by attaching cone cutouts to each.
Can’t forget the beanie boos. This particular beanie boo kitten is named Kiki, my daughter’s fav. This is the one we planned our celebration around, hence the hints of pink.

I decorated most of the treats with edible eyes to tie in the large eyes of the beanie boo stuffed animals.
The cupcakes were homemade Chocolate and Vanilla, with strawberry vanilla bean cream frosting for a loose tie to neapolitan.
Garnished with edible eyes and mini cones.
I made my signature dairy free lemon sugar cookies, decorated with royal icing and shaped with my pastry/ice cream cart, ice cream cone, and heart shaped cutters.
I specifically used the heart to emulate the TY heart tag that each beanie boo comes with, but in colors that instead matched our theme.
You can find all of these cutters in my shop.
The ice cream gummy candies were the perfect fit for our table and matched the custom ice cream confetti and color scheme perfectly.
The cake below, although far from perfect was my first attempt at a drip cake. I topped it with vegan dark chocolate, a custom beanie boo sprinkle mix that I made, a mini ice cream cone and french macarons.
make a wish doll….
We served one final treat to our party guests…
WE LOVE ICE CREAM
Each guest went home with custom sprinkle mix, one beanie boo stuffed animal clip, a beanie boo pencil, sprinkles tattoo, google eye ring, and an ice cream cookie cutter.
A few more angles of the table.
These 3 always have a blast. From our celebration at home.
Cousin fun + more beanie boos!
My birthday beauty!
I had less than two weeks to plan and prep this party. After what had been a very challenging month prior, it was so nice to celebrate our daughter with family and friends and to see a sweet smile on her face.

More on the way soon!
