Zealand's Carnival Extravaganza!

Well, it's over. Weeks of planning, painting and lamenting and I am exhausted. I think everyone had a great least I hope they did. We had a bean bag toss, a ring toss, a duck scoop, bowling, face painting and an arts and crafts table. I had polaroid film and took pictures of each guest/child in the picture banner. I ordered pizza and made nachos and cheese. Christian made cherry popcorn balls and we offered cotton candy and potato chips. Party favors were carnival stickers, big top sippy cups and mini popcorn balls. I hand made and strung 100 pennants and made a faux ticket booth. If you have any questions about how anything was made, I would love to share with you how I did it all! Enjoy! I am off to rest!

I bet you could sell the party on Craig's List.

What a great idea! Everything is so cute. I might steal your idea it for the very distant future! said...

That looks fabulous. I am glad I'm not the only one who goes a little overboard on things. I like projects! I agree you should add an email subscription, I hardly ever check Google Reader :)

Great job mama
