I had so much fun designing this carnival birthday party…especially because it was celebrating my baby boy! I’ve always wanted to do a carnival theme, knowing that there are endlessly possibilities for fun. I decided on this theme for his 1st birthday party the moment I pushed him…I know I’m crazy! Since then I’ve been eye spying, every store I shopped at for carnival or circus themed things! You would be surprised how easy it is to style a party exquisitely when you give yourself enough time…and I’ll admit a lil’ design sense is needed as well.

The menu was simple:::Chili dogs, nachos, popcorn, cotton candy, caramel & apples and lemonade. Desserts included cupcakes, chocolate mustaches, cake pops and a candy bar!
|Cupcakes were made by Angelica Acosta and we topped them with clown cupcake toppers.|
|I made tiny balloons and attached them to animal figurines!|
|Clown cake pops by Lollie Cakes|
|I cut out funny dress up props for guests to use in the photo booth.|
|Carnival games:: ping pong blast, peg a clown, bottle toss, bowling and fish a duck to name a few. Some games were bought but most were home-made.|
|Clown faces were cut from felt and glued to cardboard. They were attached to red baskets.|
|Kids won raffle tickets at every game booth. They redeemed their tickets at the prize table.|
|Birthday boy decked out in stripes and red suspenders.|
The overall party was awesome. Friends and family enjoyed themselves and my baby boy was celebrated carnival style!!
