How to create a Magical Ice Cream Party

Imagine one day walking through that magical landscape we all dreamt of as kids, filled with sweet treats and pastel colours! Amazing mama Natalie from This Sweet Life of Mine created this fantasy land for her sweet girl Chloe’s second birthday. Read on to find out how Natalie created this wonderland!


Natalie Says


‘Sweets for our sweet girl’ came about through Chloe’s love for all things sweet. Whether it be doughnuts, lollies, cakes but especially ice cream. Jess from little J Designs came up with the colour scheme sending through a photo of the perfect palette of pastel colours with a hint of gold. I fell in love instantly and so began the planning for our little miss.


I like to put most of my budget into one piece of styling and for this party it was the 5m balloon garland from Party Planet. I then styled things around this piece including a custom screen from Be Branded. Most of the other party supplies were purchased from Kmart. To add a personal touch I purchased white frames and placed photo’s of Chloe at ages newborn, one and two.


I outsourced the food this year and honestly it was the biggest relief. Grazing Acres did a wonderful job creating a breakfast spread (9am party) for our guests to enjoy. It included a build your own muesli station, croissants, ham, cheese and fruits.


Chloe’s cake was made by Ange’s cakes who put together an ice cream themed masterpiece. She also made ‘Ice cream cones’ which looked just like real ice creams but in face were stuffed with white chocolate and white marble chocolate cake. The cake topper was from XOXO Design. I went with a custom gold metallic side mount as the top of the cake was already very full.

For sweets I ordered personalised chocolate bars through Print & Party. They had the perfect Ice Cream theme to match with Chloe’s Party.


Party favours were of course in the shape of an ice cream and they were handcrafted marshmallow ice creams from Cloud Theory Marshmallows.
