Party planning


I am planning the twins party which will be this spring. Since they have Christmas birthday's, I thought this would be more fun. Ya know, break it up a bit. Anyway, I just decided to do a Carnival party! I just love the cake above! And I hope Paul can make all the fun stuff/ games. here is what I have so far...

Ticket booth

Ring toss game

Bean bag toss game

Fishing game

Any other ideas?



I am planning on having it here:
This picture only shows 2/3rd's of the yard. On the left is the driveway, where we could put the ticket booth. To the left of that, we could put the bounce house. Then the games in the center, and the food and tables to the right of the sidewalk.

What do y'all think? And I have about 3 months to get it all together. Yes, I am a BIG planner. I always need my ducks in a row.

Your parents are sweet to let you have it there! What about a cupcake walk? Or a treasure hunt? Children like to bob for apples too. Have fun!

Love your parent's house!
As much as I hate it, little ones always love the face painting!

I helped out at a party like that and it was so cute! They had a tattoo booth that was a huge hit. You also need some carnival food. They had popcorn, cotton candy and a chocolate fountian but I would skip the fountian as messy as little ones are. Have you ever checked out oriental trading co? They would have lots of great props/prizes.

We'll be there! ha ha

I once went to a carnival kids party -- it was so cute. They had those pull apart tickets that you can get at Walmart that are just like the real thing.

I remember they had a little fishing for prizes "booth"....some neighborhood kids were on the other side putting little prizes (i.e. cheap plastic stuff) on their little fishing poles. You can probably get some cute stuff from Oriental Trading Co. catalog.
