Our Super Fun, Super Simple Back to School Ice Cream Social
{with Kleenex Hand Towels!}

 
First things first:  Congratulations to Danielle, who gets to try out some awesome Kleenex Hand Towels!!  I have emailed you to get your info.  You're going to love 'em.

So, we had our little Back to School Ice Cream Social for our kids' friends {and our friends and their kids}.  Shamefully, I didn't make any homemade ice cream.  The last week of summer is way to overwhelming. I don't know what I was thinking.  I didn't even really decorate.  But guess what . . . it was still fun!!  Sometimes I shy away from entertaining because I have this idea in my head of what I want my party to look like -- gorgeous back drops, too-cute utensils and accessories, elaborate foods -- and I just don't have the energy to execute it.  Not that there's anything wrong with those things.  They make for awesome parties.  But I'm embracing the fact that sometimes I can just have my friends over for some store-bought ice cream in my little 'ol house and that can be awesome, too. 



{I had a hard time getting good, crisp pictures of excited little ice cream eating bodies.  At lest they were having fun, right?!}  I did decorate the tiniest little bit.  I rolled out some kraft paper gift wrap on the table and labeled the ice cream and toppings with a Sharpie.  







I had to do something, after all.  Then, when the party was over, we just rolled up the paper and threw it straight in the trash so clean-up was a breeze.  Love that!  With so many little kiddies eating messy ice cream the Kleenex Hand Towels were a life saver, too.


{Again . . . the wiggly babies . . .}  The moral of the story is:  entertaining can be super simple and still be super fun.  Thanks to Kleenex Hand Towels for inspiring this little end of summer get-together!  If you would like to try Kleenex Hand Towels yourself {and you should!}, you can find them in the paper towel aisle of your local grocery store.
