Send in the Clowns

We are excited to present pictures of a carnival party we did this weekend. We worked with a wonderful client who owns a daycare. She wanted to transform her backyard into a carnival for a day of fun for the daycare kids and their parents. We used traditional carnival colors and carried them throughout the decor.

The whimsical dessert table was the centerpiece of the event. Jennifer created cupcakes topped with marshmallows cut to look like little buckets of popcorn. Clown cake pops were complimented by theme color cake pops for a lovely display. Jennifer custom dyed candy melts to get just the right turquoise coating for the cake pops. Jeff created the amazing large "Welcome to the Carnival" sign on the dessert table backdrop as well as the mini pennant hanging on striped straws between two cupcakes.

Custom sewn carnival game backdrops added splashes of color to the backyard. Striped fabric in the color theme wasn't readily available so we custom striped the fabric from solid pieces to ensure the color theme stayed true. Jeff designed beautiful game signs for each booth.

Kids enjoyed a caricature artist and played games with a clown on stilts.Guests indulged in cotton candy and popcorn from nostalgic machines.

At the prize table we gathered like prizes together in mason jars to create an old fashioned carnival feel. Flags on striped straws in the mason jars told the kids the ticket value of each prize.

One guest commented that the only thing missing was a roller coaster! Many thanks to our client Lori for allowing us to create this wonderful day!
