Simple last minute ice cream party & I'm guest posting!

I'm sharing on oldie but goodie

Nothing But Country

While you're there, check out the rest of Mary Beth's blog!! 
So many great ideas, freebies &'s one of my favorite places!

As you know, we just moved into a new house. 
I plan on having an 'official' housewarming party soon 
(it will be combined with a football weekend too). 

In the meantime, I wanted to try out a few ideas on my in-laws.
A DIY ice cream sandwich/cone bar.
I will admit that I had 99% of the ingredients already -
which makes for a cheap party :) 
I used store bought ice cream sandwiches cut in half. 
Put them on a popsicle stick for added cuteness.

I had waffle cones and color cones already.

I used sprinkles, M&M's, mini marshmallows & Reese's cups as 'add-ons' 
to the sandwiches (just dip the ends of the sandwich into your fave toppings).

I also had vanilla and chocolate frozen yogurt 
*see it wasn't that unhealthy :)


It was a success!  
I mean, it's 100 degrees here - who's not gonna want ice cream?!?!

I hope you had a great weekend. 

This week, the lizard's elementary school is having a pep rally.
I'll share the goodies I'm sending to school with him :)  
Here's a hint...the mascot is a bear - any ideas???

Thanks for such a cute post!!! Hmmm...I wonder how they'd work with a very quick dip in some melted chocolate, decorate them w/sprinkles or what not, and then pop back in the freezer for a few minutes just to firm them up a big again...Something to keep in the back of my mind for future reference :-)
