Patriotic Party Idea: Red, White and Blue Ice Cream Bar

Whether you're celebrating Memorial Day, the 4th of July or just want to honor America, incorporating red, white and blue snacks and treats is all part of the fun! With seasonal berries and fruits, it's super easy to add some patriotic pride, especially at the dessert bar. 

The only thing better than ice cream is an ice cream sundae you can make yourself. With a mix and match of colorful and fresh toppings, creating your own sundae that also pays homage to America couldn't be easier. We love using vanilla ice cream as the blank canvas, and incorporating fun topping such as Fannie May Dessert Sauce Trio and their Strawberry Shortcake Bark Squares



Adding some American flare is simple and fun, too. With some American flag toothpicks and drink umbrellas, you can dress  up just about anything! Serve with some patriotic napkins and bowls, and you have a perfect red, white and blue display. 



For the Patriotic Ice Cream Bar:


Set out all of your toppings each in a separate bowl, and display your sauces. For a fun extra touch, put an American flag toothpick in each of the toppings bowls. 

Have fun mixing and matching your sundaes! The strawberry sauce looks so great over white ice cream with some blueberries mixed in. Top with an American flag drink umbrella!
