Last weekend we threw both boys a combined Carnival birthday party.
After last year I decided that I would push hard to combine their parties this year because they really like the same things and I felt like I had thrown the same party twice.
A few months ago I ran across a blog post about a carnival themed wedding and fell in love with the carnival theme...i love a theme. It seemed age appropriate and I was hopeful that we could do an outdoor party with homemade games and lots of fun carnival detail.
I got carnival tickets that the kids won for every game they played. old fashioned soda bottles with adorable striped straws. mp and i made oreo pops. craig popped corn and we had individual popcorn bags. we also had fruit skewers and hot dogs.
we were lucky with a beautiful day for the party, i think it was 80 degrees, but it was super windy. because of the wind the table was not as cute as i would have liked it to be, but i am pretty sure that didn't matter much.
