My kid's birthdays are 3 days apart, therefore I decided to throw them a birthday party together. I decided on a carnival theme, since it is gender neutral.
I had so much fun planning it, I started thinking and gathering ideas 3 months before the party on pinterest. It had to be an indoor party since it is December.
Take a look on how it turned, warning that there is a picture overload :)
I bought 3 yards of this red stripe fabric from IKEA for the background
Chocolate Cupcakes, you can find the recipe here
Vanilla Cupcakes, you can find the recipe here
Cake Pops, you can find my tutorial on how to make these here
I bought the lollipops on Amazon
I bought these popcorn containers at Target in the dollar bins
I wanted to have a "photo booth" for lots of fun and silly pictures
I used 2 large foam poster boards
I taped them together and glued blue stripes to cover the seam and create a fun bright backdrop
me and my hubby
For food we had:
Baked Potato wedges
Italian hotdogs for the adults and plain hotdogs for the kids
Bean bag toss game
Some empty cans, a little bit of scrap paper and you have yourself:
I made a Rainbow cake, I saw this here
Instead of a cake mix, I just used my vanilla cupcake recipe
That wraps it up!
We had such a great time, I can not wait until next year!
