Welcome to a playful popsicle themed party for the kids this summer. Here are a few event planning tips if you are wanting to try out this theme.

Blow up those balloons and get the party started with a simple balloon machine. You can find this balloon garland on Amazon as well. Balloons are a great addition to any party, and they are one of the most inexpensive items you can add. Use them for a balloon garland or make floral ice balls to keep those popsicles chilled.
Photo Backdrop- Yes, Please!
Yes, setting up a photo backdrop is easier than it looks. You can find this sweet “pop on over and chill” photo backdrop on Amazon, and it’s not going to cost too much. Use sandbags and heavy paint pails on either side to help with the wind. Just cover those sand bags and paint pails with blankets or rugs for a more elegant look.
A DIY picnic is very easy to set up. Don’t want to buy or make a low picnic table? I just used a ping pong table we already had, set it up on plastic bins, added some flowers, added a white tablecloth and a popsicle table runner, and threw down some plates/chargers/pillows/blankets I already had in my home. It made for a fun get together for the kids! Use what you already have. You may have more pillows than you realize!
Get poppin’ with some playful popsicle ideas. Popsicles can come in all types of different forms. You can have fun with this theme by having popsicle sugar decorated cookies, popsicle chocolate, chocolate covered bananas on a stick, watermelon on a stick, and obviously popsicles. Just get some popsicle sticks, and let your imagination take off. You could also do hotdogs on a stick as well!
Kid Friendly Summer Treats
I wanted to try out a few of snack ideas, so we did Oreo dirt in a bucket, donut towers on a stick, and funfetti dip with animal crackers. I also made my own labels on Canva. I’ll post some of these treats below. We also had soft pretzels, bagel bites, and pizza.
