I’ve been wanting to do a Carnival party for a while now, and was SUPER excited when my sister wanted one for her little girl! I was glad to hear that she didn’t want the regular ol’ carnival colors- red, blue, yellow… but wanted a vintagey looking color scheme. I LOVE these colors, it reminds me of a mix between and ice cream shoppe and a carnival. Ooooh just love it, makes me wanna go to a carnival now!
I looked all over for a thick striped, aqua and white anything…. fabric, tablecloth, sheets, whatever but nothing. Time was running out so I decided just to make my own. Went to Wally world were I saw the perfect color of aqua (tho it looks more minty in the pix)! I went straight home to work on it and a day later had the cutest awning to use!! The sun was shining pretty bright and was pretty windy that day (curse the wind on party days!;) so you can’t really see but I scalloped the edges of it. LOVE!
That little ferris wheel behind the popcorn is a picture frame holder that I’ve had forever and a day. We didn’t get pictures in it of Kelsey but it still made a cute decoration!
This adorable ferris wheel cupcake holder is the main reason I wanted to do a carnival party, I was SO excited to get the package!
I wanted to make a custom ticket with coordinating colors and put her birthday as the ticket number. Such a fun added detail!
White paper bags with my new favorite lace-scalloped punch! Adds a super easy and cute look. We were going to do pie pops but opted for healthier fruit kabobs since there was so many sweets already.
Cotton candy cones! I made up some scalloped designs and taped them to some sno cone cups.
The cake she got from Nothing Bundt Cake was super adorable and DElish! I love that place
She has a friend who owns machines for carnivals, so she borrowed the cotton candy and sno cone machine. Such a fun addition to the party and made the Carnival theme really come alive!
The cute birthday girl and her mama :)
Meet Harley. They rented a pony for a few hours for the kids to ride on. SUPER fun idea! She loves animals so that was perfect. I was just sad adults couldn’t ride on it, I wanted to dust off my ol’ horseback riding skills!
The guys blowing up balloon animals… and horsing around hah that’s my family right there :)
I cracked up when I saw this smile of Spencer’s below… what a funny baby
