The first thing for me is always the guest list and the invitation. With young families on the list the numbers increase very quickly. Keeping it under 50 people seemed daunting at first but once the replies came back that a couple families were vacationing we ended at just under 30 people.
The secondary plan was to have a range of activities set up inside for the kids after they finished their ice cream. Which plan did we go with?
If you are curious about how the Ice Cream Bar turned out, come back next week for the next post - Building An Ice Cream Bar!
