With Summer’s birthday in the middle of September and Tyler’s birthday in the middle of October, it is so fun to combine them (while they are little and don’t care!) and make one big birthday party! This year I did a carnival party and had all sorts of games and carnival style food!
I made frosting to put on top of the cupcakes and cake and while it was supposed to be red, and look like a ticket, I’m lacking the cake decorating gene so we opted more for a pink box. Hey, it works, right?
We had lots of games to play! We did a bean bag toss, pop a balloon, ball throw and ring toss. Each adding a fun little token to the kid’s goodie bags!
And we have to have face painting! Luckily one of my friends jumped right in to help me out and she made some awesome animals! Tyler loved his shark!
For food we had Hot dogs wrapped in foil, corn on a stick, churro tots, caramel corn, lots of fruits and veggies, little smokies, and of course, cotton candy!
And what is a party these days without a photo booth?
It was a carnival for the books and the kids had a ton of fun with their family and friends and even got some cool new toys!
Because there can’t be a carnival without cotton candy!
Thank you to everyone who came and made this day so special for my munchkins!
