Our 2nd Birthday Carnival Party

This week the kids turn 2 and we celebrated this weekend with a carnival themed birthday party. I promised Steven that I would tone it down this year but one thing led to another and well I may have went a little overboard. I only have to throw one party a year so why not make it as fun as possible for kids and adults! When I decided to go with the carnival theme I started finding things I could borrow and the ideas kept coming. We had games, roller coaster rides, a photo booth, carnival food and more!

Our guest entered through the big top!
I made this birthday banner and used our bench for presents

For the games we had bean bags, tattoos, ring toss, baseball throw, roller coaster rides, a photo booth and a bounce house.
Our Concessions included fresh popcorn, cotton candy, peanuts, pretzels, animal crackers, lollipops, clown cookies and a big top cake of course!

We had plenty of drinks for such a hot day!
We had the best carnival food - hot dogs and nachos!
And our big top cake was super cute with popcorn cupcakes
I made these popcorn table decorations
Our guest left with these cute popcorn bags and cotton candy!

I had a lot of fun planning this party and it was all worth it to see the kids (and adults) have such a good time! 



what an adorable party! i think you should go all out, with all 3 celebrating on one day. great job, looks like you didn't leave one detail undone.
