Theme Parties: A 1st Birthday Carnival

I just love a good themed party!  It helps bring all the pieces of a fun party together- from the invites, to the decor, games, food, favors- you name it.  In this series I'll share a look at some of the budget friendly, fun themed parties we've had for our kiddos.  

Oh, this was a fun party to host! Who doesn't love a carnival? For our youngest son's 1st birthday we hosted a backyard birthday carnival--complete with carnival food and games. As usual, I hit up the Dollar store for a lot of the party supplies. My splurge on this party was an old fashion popcorn maker--which was a hit! Here's a look at some snapshots from our little guy's 1st birthday carnival celebration:

Welcome to the Carnival!

What's a carnival without cotton candy?!
Setting up the games!
The loot!
The kiddos had to guess the number of Hershey Kisses in the bowl. Needless to say, the boys were relieved that no smooching was required!

Nothing like a good old fashioned BBQ/carnival with family and friends!

A slam dunk!

Oh, how we love this birthday boy!
