Carnival Birthday Party!

Addys 6th Bday party is coming up! I can’t believe how much time has flown by. I’m in the mist of planning & crafting things for her up coming party. I thought it’d be fun to share some of the fun things we did for her party last year. We had a “carnival”! Perfect for turning 5. It worked out great for being able to invite the whole preschool class. Both boys & girls loved it!

**DISCLAIMER** This is before I started blogging, so unfortunately most of the photos were taken with a cell phone or by others ! ( too hard to run the party & take the pics) But at least I have some to share!

We decided to have the party in our basement (I‘ll post about that redo later!). Its basically the kids space so it worked out well.

First the invites to set the theme. I bought the carnival cards at Oriental Trading Co.
They are actually supposed to be frames. I decided to print the invite & glue them to the photo spot.  Now for my carni help….


I bought red tshirts & iron on letters to create matching shirts for all us “helpers” . Complete with hat & apron! Lots of typical carnival games…


Photo booth……

The tattoo booth was a hit! Always a line there!

And of course there was a magic show at lunch! (performed by my older daughter & her friend) ……


One side of the ping pong table was for magic & the other was for lunch.....


At the end, everyone got to turn in their tickets for prizes & pick up their take home bag!!


She had such a great time!
I can’t wait for this years party - “Pinkalicious Princess party” …details to come!

Hello Trisha! I love kiddie parties. You see I am a grown up who remains to be kid at heart. :) I love the details of the party. It's so alive, colorful and each kid guest have his own personalized loot bag.

I am definitely looking forward for your next part post!
