I think that this poster makes a good point. I would much rather have ice cream, especially if the alternative is darkness & chaos. I've been daydreaming about the decorations I'm going to put up for my party. I was thinking I might even go for an ice cream cone shaped pinata. I know that I am in the land of pinatas, and could probably find one shaped like an ice cream cone - but it might just not be what I am looking for. I know I need to find waffle cones and fun dishes. I wonder if I could go to an ice cream parlor and buy fresh waffle cones on Saturday? I would make them myself, but all I have is a Belgian waffle maker, and I'm not sure it would make cones. Any essential party accessories you recommend?
