Step right up! Come one, come all! It’s Easton’s Backyard Carnival Birthday Party! We had so much fun celebrating Easton’s 7th birthday. The day was filled with friends, family, games, sweet treats, prizes and lots of clowning around! I created a little video with more fun details from the party, too. You can see it here.
I had so much fun decorating for this party. I love the bright, bold colors of a carnival. We hung an adorable carnival tent above our main food table. It created a perfect “big top” for the party! I loved it! We hung it from an 8ft tomato stake and it worked perfectly. I also created a bunch of carnival themed party printable designs for the celebration. You can find all of the carnival birthday party printables in my Etsy shop.
The Carnival Concessions at the party included Carnival Crunch Popcorn, cotton candy, birthday cupcakes, cookies, chips, watermelon and Twinkie corn dogs!
The Twinkie corn dogs were a huge hit at the party. These were the simplest treat to create and I think they turned out so cute. You can make them in minutes with Twinkies, red cookie icing and lollipop sticks. I also created a quick video that you can check out here. I used mixed berry flavor Twinkies. The centers of the mixed berry flavor are pink and they actually look like real corn dogs! So fun!
As the party guests arrived, they each received an “Admit One” name badge lanyard. Sawyer and a few friends, along with myself, were Carnival Staff! We were in charge of games and concessions. The games included potato sack races, hopper ball races, giant inflatable yard bowling, popcorn toss game, whipped cream pie eating contests and “Dunk a Dad” with our Splash Tower! As you can imagine, the “Dunk a Dad” game was an epic hit! The Splash Tower was so much fun. Scott was a very good sport! Haha! It was such a hot afternoon that a lot of the carnival-goers and staff joined in and got dunked too!
Everyone had to make a stop at Easton’s tattoo booth too. These glittery tattoos were a favorite at the booth too!
Before the party was over, everyone had to stop at our prize wall to “step right up and grab a prize”. After all, you can’t leave a carnival without some prizes!
