Vintage Carnival

This Vintage Carnival themed party celebrating my sons’ 7th and 5th birthdays was, without a doubt, my favorite to date. With its timeless theme, festive color scheme, classic games and fun prizes…this party was my ultimate “awesome birthday party” and will be a tough one to top. I dreamed of having my own carnival party when I was a kid, and I’ve always loved the vintage circus theme…so this party was (almost) as much for me, as it was for my kids. Oh, who am I kidding…I was probably more into it (ahem, obsessed) than anyone else! I really enjoyed...

Vintage Carnival – The Sweet Shoppe

Candy buffets and dessert tables seem to be standard at every birthday party, shower or wedding these days. I’ve seen my share of them at the amazing weddings I’ve worked and everyone loves a good candy buffet. They are always a hit and it’s nice to take home a little bag of sweets to enjoy later. A lot of sugary treats were already planned for The Gaines Bros. Vintage Carnival, but a candy buffet was a still a must for my boys’ party! So after loading kids up with cotton candy, sweet tea, cupcakes, etc…we sent them home with bags of candy, just two weeks before...

Vintage Carnival – The Entertainment

A carnival simply would not be a carnival without fun games and prizes!  For my boys, having game booths and prizes at their Vintage Carnival party was what they were most excited about. And when my sister, Mary, suggested a ping pong ball toss to win a real goldfish…they could not contain their excitement and had to tell all their friends before the invitations even went out!  My family brainstormed ideas for all the games and narrowed it down to activities that would be easy and financially feasible to put together. We originally thought of a bounce house, magician and juggler...

Vintage Carnival – The Photo Booth

Who doesn’t love a PHOTO BOOTH! They are so much FUN!!!  For the MARVELOUS Gaines Bros. Vintage Carnival Party, a painted drop cloth used as party decor created a delightful backdrop for our version of a photo booth. And since my boys enjoy dressing up for their themed parties, a chance to be silly in their carnival costumes made a photo booth a must. Mason wanted to be The Ringmaster and Isaac chose The Strong Man character. With Halloween around the corner, I was able to find an awesome vampire costume at Marshalls for under $20, that was easily modified to look like a vintage...
