Carnival Birthday Party

Hey guys, it’s Noelle here from NBrynn Designs. Today I get to share a fabulous circus birthday party with you that we recently threw for my 2 year old son and 3 year old niece. It was a lot of fun to plan and the kids had an absolute blast! My son, Kyler, is still talking about the list of things he loved from his party, “popcorn, candy, popcorn…” I guess those treats are what stood out to him the most, even though we had all sorts of yummies to choose from. Take a look at the main dessert table! 
Cupcakes are a staple in all my dessert tables. They are fun to “dress up” with wraps and toppers and are easier for guests to grab and eat than a regular cake. We also had yummy custom cake pops by April’s Cake Pops in the shapes of clowns and big top tents, whirly lollipops, circus peanuts, candy sticks and red hot popcorn. Yum, yum!
I’m all about letting the experts do their thing, but sometimes it’s fun to try your hand at something new! My husband did most of the work in creating these adorable balloon and circus tent lollipops in red, yellow and aqua. We lined them up in an old suitcase and they made a great addition to the dessert table, plus they tasted amazing! 
We created a huge circus tent draping the front entrance out of a roll of red and white striped tablecloth (which we sadly did not get a picture of!). Each guest received a bag full of tickets to use at all the games inside. The bags would also serve as a place to collect all their winnings. The kids were greeted with rows of cotton candy and balloons! 
As always, I think a good printable set really brings the look of a party together by tying all the decor together. From coordinating centerpieces to matching cupcake toppers to custom game signs, this DimplePrints circus package was perfect for our party! 
What’s a good circus without fresh, hot popcorn?! We made sure there was plenty for all with a full popcorn station, complete with an old fashioned popper on wheels! 
Our games consisted of Knock ‘Em Over, Bean Bag Toss, Fishing, Face Painting, Coloring Station and a Photo Booth. All of our photo booth props came from Props R Us and were definitely a crowd favorite! Be sure to stop by my blog next week where we’ll be giving away a photo booth set with 15 props!! 
Photo booth fun!
In addition to all the sweets, popcorn and cotton candy, we had a snack and drink table with lemonade, fruit punch, water, hot dogs, pretzels and goldfish for the little ones. I tried to incorporate some pennant banners in all my game and food stations and also some “vintage” feeling item in each display, like an old suitcase, old milk crate and wooden bench. 
We had plenty to eat, lots of fun and the birthday kids were in awe. Overall the party was a great success! I’m getting ready for several more fun kids’ parties and crafts, so please stop over my way sometime soon and say hi! Thanks for reading!
