We are so excited to be featuring this wonderful Carnival themed birthday party sent in from one of our fabulous customers. We first met Victoria when she came in to pick up some supplies for her son’s birthday. After hearing about some of the details, we couldn’t wait to see pictures of what she was planning.
Here is what Victoria had to say about this party:
This year I decided that I wanted to throw my son a Carnival themed birthday party. I remembered how much he loved the Western Fair here in London and how he loves eating popcorn, going on the rides and playing carnival games. So it only made sense to have a Carnival theme for his birthday this year!
For the games and activities we had a Balloon Pop, Clown Ball Toss, Duck Pond, a Cardboard Ice Cream truck for colouring, bubbles and more! We had face painters at the party and used Snazaroo face paints which worked out wonderfully! We served up some classic carnival favourites such as hotdogs, corn dogs, pizza, cotton candy, snow cones, peanuts and popcorn! We also had a Carnival Candy Buffet with lots of cupcakes and candies for everyone.
I purchased wooden spoons and hand stamped them with “Mateo’s Carnival” on each of the spoons – this added such a nice personal touch 🙂 I also purchased jumbo sized balloons! I wanted something that would be big and vibrant, and these balloons definitely delivered! At 36″, these were definitely a show stopper at our party and were a lot of fun for the kids and adults.
All in all, the party was a success! The carnival games were played throughout the entire party and the kids were also able to exchange their “Mateo Money” for prizes. There was never a dull moment. My son and all of his friends had a blast, and that’s what made planning this party even more enjoyable!
