In picturesque Orange County, you have undoubtedly discovered the best beaches, the best coffee house and the best palm tree to grace the earth, all there in that pristine community in Southern California. The only thing left in your quest for the finest in life is to find the best toddler ice cream party in Orange County. Although the task may seem daunting, it is not beyond the scope of your abilities. You just need to know where to look.
Head to the Parlor
For a good old-fashioned ice cream party, head to Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlor (farrellsusa.com), which describes its 90-minute party “like a wonderland of tingly goodness for all seven of your senses.” Your tot and her pals will be treated to not only a sundae that looks like a clown, but also some yummy food to help counteract the insane amount of sugar. If the party is for a birthday, the guest of honor will receive a special present.
Farrell’s has locations in Brea and Mission Viejo. You can also head on over to Strickland’s (stricklands.info). Their only California location is on the UC Irvine Campus. They serve “deliciously different homemade ice cream” and have a Birthday Club which would allow the little princess to have a free sundae on her birthday!
Bring in the Ice Cream Bus
Yes, you read that correctly. Screamin’ Ice Cream (icecreambus.com) is a company in South Orange County which will bring an ice cream bus to you. You can probably imagine the squeals of delight and the endless cries of “Please?” that you will hear as the bus approaches your little man’s party. Screamin’ Ice Cream offers a party package that comes with invitations, decorations, balloons and a special song.
You can have the party at home, at the park, at the beach or even at your mother-in-law’s house. She’d be thrilled. If you want to go all out with the Southern California surf theme, Longboards Ice Cream (longboards.com) will do the trick. They will come to you with their unique ice cream flavors, all decked out in a vintage VW Bus adorned with a sweet longboard.
Ice Cream Take-Out
You may want to consider staying at home and having an ice cream take-out buffet. Baskin Robins (baskinrobbins.com) has several Orange County locations, and you can either take advantage of their pre-packed ice cream containers, or have them pack a unique blend of your tot’s favorite flavors. Cold Stone Creamery (coldstonecreamery.com) also has several Orange County Locations. Simply head into the store and pick out your favorite flavor, or have them concoct a special birthday blend just for your little one.
A Non-Ice Cream Ice Cream Party
If you want to throw a twist in the fun, have an ice cream party where you don’t serve ice cream! Wiki Wiki Shave Ice (wikiwikishaveice.com) in Orange County will bring shave ice to you. It offers party service which includes table settings, servers, cups and two hours of an open shave ice bar. If frozen yogurt is more your thing, CDM Frozen Yogurt (cdmfrozenyogurt.com) is the proud owner of the only yogurt truck in all of Orange County. They will come to your party with their frozen deliciousness in a groovy yellow bus.
