Ice Cream Social Engagement Party

An engagement party is a special time to celebrate upcoming nuptials with friends and family. Many couples choose a fun theme to pull their party together. From food to decor and cocktails the ideas are endless! 

I love the idea of throwing a classy ice cream social engagement party. Think vintage ice cream glasses, tons of sprinkles and different kinds of syrup, party straws and more. You could really go crazy by incorporating little elements like tiered dessert stands, old school coke bottles for ice cream floats, printables on top of your food and maybe even a vintage photo booth.

I found tons of ideas on the Web on how to really pull together an elegant ice cream social engagement party. Scroll through the images in the gallery and see if this party is for you!


  • A cute make-your-own sundae style table fixed with a party banner and vintage ice cream glasses for guests is super chic. You can include different types of syrups, colorful sprinkles and other toppings and candies guests will love. I think going a vintage candy route could be great as well.

  • How cute are these little ice cream sandwich cookies! I especially love the edible wrapper with the couple's initials on it. Such a nice way to personalize your dessert!

  • You can't have a party without a cake! Just in case guests are not hopped up on enough sugar, this pretty ice cream cone cake make with chocolate ganache will really make a statement.

  • Think decor. This wooden box with compartments is a great way to not only display your sprinkles in a unique way, but guests will be able to get extra big scoops for their sundaes.

  • Of course with your ice cream, you are going to need spoons. We saw these wooden ones over on Etsy that you can customize to say "Tying the Knot" or "Eat, Drink and Be Married" which I thought were so appropriate for an engagement party.

  • If you really want to go all out, consider some ice cream cone shaped floral arrangements. These metallic cone shaped vases work perfectly as a cone base. Arrange flowers accordingly and add a small red flower on top as the cherry!

  • How elegant and chic would it be to serve these bite-sized ice cream cone macarons?
