Stand Out in a Crowd of Birthdays

Baby birthday parties are quite a scene in New York.

I've been lucky enough to avoid the circuit thanks to some low-key friends and the fact that most of Reese's buddies are late fall-early winter babies.  But I've been to enough that I'm kind of sick of cupcakes.

So, when I heard about The Soft Serve Fruit Co., I was pretty jazzed about it.  So much so that I'm posting this in hopes that someone will serve it at a party I attend before the end of the warm weather.

Here's the scoop (pun intended! and horrible!): The Soft Serve Fruit Co. makes soft serve frozen fruit.  It's basically like a FrozFruit (children of the 80's, you know what I'm talking about), but blended.  They have banana, blueberry, raspberry, tangerine, mango and more...all of which can be served with toppings, just like frozen yogurt, but healthier.  It's gluten and dairy free, perfect for parties when you never know what people are avoiding eating!

I think it would be a really cute party idea to have a make-you-own sundae bar with lots of fun toppings. I like the idea of serving at a kids party because it's healthier than cake, but sweet enough that you're not that Grinch mom handing out raisins and apples on Halloween.

Plus...here's a secret.  I don't like cake.  I know, go ahead, crucify me in the comments.

I heard about Soft Serve Fruit Co. because they opened a store near my apartment, but I recently found out that they ship nationwide!

Any other good party ideas?  Reese's second is fast approaching...

  1. No crucifying here! I, too, hate cake. I used to have my mom make me brownies or cheesecake for my birthday parties I hated cake so much.
