  1. Place a small amount of confetti and candy in each ice cream dish.
  2. Top your dish with an inflated 5-inch balloon to mimic a scoop of ice cream.
  3. Top off the 5-inch balloon with a mini tissue paper cherries to complete the ice cream sundae look. (To make the cherry, take a 4-inch by 4-inch square of red tissue paper. Place a small cotton ball in the center and twist the top up around the cotton ball.)

Let each of your guests choose a balloon Sunday to take home as their party favor.

These balloon ice cream scoops would also look delicious with the little tissue paper “sprinkles”. To do this, glue tissue paper “sprinkles” on to each of the 5-inch balloons.




Share your ice cream party photos with us on InstagramFacebook and Twitter.


Note: Adult supervision is required when using balloons. Please read all warnings and precautions on the Balloon Time carton.
