Pinterest Finds: Coke float and ice cream station party ideas

Turned to Pinterest the other day for some party inspiration, and I found buckets of it. I’m not planning on hosting a party for a while, but you can bet your bottom dollar that there will be some themed shindigs at some point this year!

Because these party ideas are just unbelievably awesome, a single Pinterest Find will be published every day this week. Be sure to let me know your favourites…

First up is this coke float / ice cream stand. Great idea for a kids party, but also a nice summer afternoon idea for friends.

For the coke floats you will need:

  • Long glass tumblers
  • Coke
  • Ice cream (preferably vanilla, but cherry could also work well)
  • Long spoons (for scooping up the ice cream)
  • Straws

For the ice cream station you will need:

  • Sundae glasses, or similar
  • Long spoons
  • 3 different flavours of ice cream
  • 3 sauces (I like chocolate, strawberry and toffee)
  • Toppings (chocolate shavings, sprinkles, candied fruit, brownie chunks, honeycomb)
  • Whipped cream
  • Cherries to garnish

Optional extras are pretty napkins and fancy straws! How fun does this sound?!


I’m not used to warm weather – is there a way to keep the ice cream from melting if it is out of the freezer? Obviously keep it out of sunlight but any other tips?
