My mom, sister and I co-hosted a carnival party for my nephew's 1st birthday. My nephew and his parents live out of state but they come over here to celebrate since all the guest are from here as well.
We went with the traditional red and blue colors with hints of yellow
My mom's famous J E L L O! Get the recipe and tutorial HERE!
"Popcorn" cupcakes! These were fun to make!
Mini water bottles
Peanuts and caramel apples were the favors
We "hired" my brother to be the clown (yes...the birthday boy's daddy...hehe)
Since my brother has no "clown" experience, he just made an appearance and passed out these goody bags to the kids
We played lots of carnival games like Tic Tac Toe, SkeeBall, Ring Toss, etc. We also had a jumper that the kids loved. We had Bingo for the adults. We borrowed this popcorn machine from a family member.
Can you tell we love photo booths!?!
I got lucky and got some props at Targets $1 section which was for Circus/Carnival Theme!
My dad painted this Gypsy. It was hilarous when they boys took pictures with the gypsy!
