We recently had my family over for a delicious dinner. This is a standard event at our household which happens about once a month. It’s always enjoyable, fun and relaxing.
I thought maybe we were forgetting how much fun we have together, and how much of a party it is; because of how comfortable we all are together. For some reason I didn’t consider Sunday family gatherings as parties, it was just family. However, the more I work at Party411 the more I realize that a party can happen anywhere at any time. (Seriously, you can come in some days and a party will be planned. The reason? Not apparent.)
So how does one spice up a party that has a very similar feel and rhythm to it? You get an ice cream cake! That’s how. Did the nice lady chuckle when I asked for “Sunday Funday and a smiley face” on my cake? Of course she did, who wouldn’t? But she did have a glimmer of jealousy in her eyes.
Was the ice cream cake a success? Yes, yes it was. It made the day, if I don’t say so myself. So if you’re looking to spice things up or remind your guests that it is in fact a party, consider bringing something new to the table!
