& Ice Cream
cream or make homemade ice cream, and offer a variety
of sundae toppings.
Serve in inexpensive sundae dishes which can be found at most home goods stores
and sometimes those "everything for a dollar" stores. You
may also have a pickle tray with different varieties of pickles!
Another option is to have an ice cream "tasting,"
similar to a wine tasting. Be sure to have lots of those cute little
cups and spoons!
Have an ice cream cake; decorate with pickles made
Invitations can be created with pickles and ice cream theme.
Guests can write in a journal to tell mom-to-be what to do if she
"gets in a pickle" with her newborn.
Upon arrival have guests with children secretly write on a note card
foods they craved when they were pregnant. Later use the
note cards in a game to see if others can match the moms to their
favorite pregnancy food. Guests who are not mothers may be included
by having them either write what their own mother craved or what they
think they will crave if they are ever pregnant.
Send each guest home with an inexpensive ice cream scoop with
a small card attached with ribbon stating "What's the Scoop?"
Then have the guest of honor's name, the date, the event, etc. printed
on the card.
