how to throw an awesome carnival themed party
The carnival party is a fabulous theme if you are looking at going over the top. This theme is suitable for both girls and boys of all ages. As the colour scheme can range from pink’s and purple’s to bright red’s and blues.
Carnival is all about big bold and bright with fun foods and novelty toys. There are so many wonderful ideas, activities and food one can do with this theme.
The party gurus at Imagine Your Party put together these great ideas:
We love to put up a matching coloured gazebo for this theme – it gives the feeling of the circus tent, our draping and back drops that match the colours of choice frame the kiddies table beautifully, we have done both a girls carnival party’s using pinks with swirl designs and pictures of circus tickets and popcorn boxes and the red and white stripe with a touch of blue for boys.
Big bold colorful party packs bulging with sweets and fun toys, are a lovely addition to the sweet table, they bring out the décor and give the kids something really fun to go home with, we filled these with big swirl suckers, twirl straws, blowouts and many more fun surprises. Of course a party isn’t a party without the birthday cake, a 2 or 3 tiered cake that is both delicious and spectacular in looks is center stage of the candy buffet.
Plain colours, stripes, polka dots or the printed circus picture themed accessories are fabulous; have fun putting together a variety of décor and add candy floss, slush and popcorn machines, order a balloon caricaturist or a magician, a Face painter is a lovely addition as is pony rides, party games, electronic ride on machines, and so much more.
You can order all this from Imagine Your Party , where we bring the party to you, set up and delivery included, sit back and watch your home be transformed into a carnival. Alternatively book at Imagine The Venue where you just have to pitch up and enjoy every aspect of the party, with its large garden already full of playground equipment and an indoor Lapa where moms and dads can comfortably watch the kids play in carnival land all day.
