On a hot summer day, the best dessert is an amazing sundae bar. You can stop in at Menchie’s or whatever your local froyo/ ice cream location is, but that only works when you’re out and about. Instead of heading out for ice cream, create your own! You can fill it with your favorite ice cream flavors, fun toppings and decorate with some seriously Pinterest-worthy decorations. A sundae bar is also the perfect addition to a party when you are serving dessert to a large number of people. Instead of having to prep everyone’s dessert, get them to have fun making their own!

1. Sweet Decorations

Set up your ice cream bar with all sorts of lovely little decorations – especially these amazingly easy ice cream cone balloons.
