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.

2. Ice Cream

Whether you make your own ice cream or buy it from the store, display in a metal bins with ice.

3. Chocolate

Feature your guests’ favorite chocolate bars at the sundae bar to get some major brownie points.

4. Candy

Hit up bulk barn for some fantastic candy toppings. Mini marshmallows are my favorite!

5. Sauces

Avoid a mess with these sauce pumps!


6. Fruit

Add some color and vitamins to your ice cream bar with some fresh fruit!

7. Desserts on Desserts

Crumbling cookies and brownies on top of the sundae bar is the perfect sweet topping!

8. Sprinkles

Sprinkles can never be forgotten, it’s what makes ice cream sundaes worth photographing!

9. Cute Cups

Add your ice cream to these adorable cups from Etsy!


10. BONUS: Magic Shell Sauce

If you’re wanting to really impress your guests, make this simple, two ingredient chocolate shell sauce. YUM!
