At the end of the Summer last year, I had a little carnival party in my backyard. My niece has asked me several times since then if we could have another carnival. And, I realized that I never shared the carnival theme party printables.
Carnival Theme Party Ideas
I love vintage carnival parties, especially for younger kids. But, believe it or not, I have never had a backyard carnival party for any of my own kids! We did have a Candy Corn Carnival when the kids were younger.
And, of course you can’t have a carnival without caramel corn, and cotton candy! This Easy Caramel Corn Recipe is one of the boys’ favorites!
Carnival Party Supplies
I found everything I needed for our celebration at Party City! They had decorations, games, and favors!
I did make the cutest Carnival Theme Party Printable Tags for our party. They were perfect for food and favor labels! You can find them in the shop, here. Use the code CARNIVALTENT to download them FREE!
DIY Carnival Birthday Party
I set up this small carnival on our lemonade stand in our back yard. First, I made a sweet carnival sign for the top of the lemonade stand and filled the table top with treats and favors the kids could take home!
I even hung bags of cotton candy in front of the lemonade stand.
Finally, I set up several fun games around the lemonade stand. The kids loved throwing darts at balloons, hunting for ducks, and even playing corn hole!
