There's no party like an ice cream party! So today, in partnership with Blue Bunny, I'm showing you how to create an easy and pop-up ice cream themed soiree. Blue Bunny treats come packaged perfectly so they're easy to bring out anytime, anywhere (even to surprise your co-workers!), for instant fun. And because they're individually packaged and just the right size, it makes it easy for everyone to pick their favorite treat and dig in. We're even showing you an extra way to customize the party and give into the fun. Check it out…

Ice cream can be tricky to put out on display since it usually comes in one big tub, requires lots of scooping, and can melt quickly…BUT that's not the case with these treats! You can stack the soft ice cream Load'd Sundaes easily, stick multiple Mini Swirls in a cute cup because they're just the right size, and display the super indulgent Bunny Snacks in ice cream dishes (of course!). We used cake stands to create a tiered look and placed everything on a bar cart for a fun ice cream delivery cart around the office…

With any party, we want to make it extra special with lots of personal touches. So, we made these colorful napkin wraps! We made ours with ice cream-themed phrases that will help you give into fun alongside the Blue Bunny treats. And, we've created a template for you here if you want to use ours, too! Here's how to make them…

  1. at the risk of coming across as an internet troll (which I promise I am not) I want to offer some encouragement. I’ve been following for years, and am a BIG fan of your fun, happy aesthetic. Watching the Oh Joy band grow has been awesome. But, I feel like in the last year or so we’ve lost “Joy” the real human in the brand. It feels to me more like a team of people are taking the brand as it was a few years ago and just applying it across multiple brand partnerships. And if that’s what’s happening, that’s okay! It’s a great profit center! And you deserve lots of lovely profits 🙂 BUT, if you’re feeling the itch to push back a bit, and evolve, and re-look at what the center of the brand is, I just want to say: DO IT. take the risk, don’t be the “vanilla Joy that’s easy to market and sell to global brands”. EVOLVE. I’m here for it, and I’m sure many others are too. Don’t make the same mistake that J.Crew and Anthropologie did, it’s okay if some things change…trends evolve! We’re here for it 🙂 SO, all of this to say, if you feel this too, we’re here to support you!! And if you don’t, that’s totally fine also, keep doing your thing. and make that $$$

  2. Hi Kiki,
    Thanks so much for your message which I know came from a genuinely positive place, and I appreciate that. There’s lots of things that go on behind the scenes here that are always in motion. So just know that I am always keeping in mind what makes sense both for me, my team, and the brand as a whole in the current moment and going forward for the future.
    Best,
    Joy
