Carnival games and prizes galore! I love the idea of using a classic ferris wheel to hold treats and prizes.

The color palette used in this party is so bright and cheerful. From circus red to yellow, teals orange and blue. This is the kind of party where you can mix and match bold colors and it somehow all combines well to promote a lively, fresh and fun feel.

There’s no shortage of treats and goodies at this carnival party. There’s something here for everyone, from popcorn to snow cones, cupcakes, candy and gumballs. And it’s not just for kids. I’m sure the adults had a blast munching on all these nostalgic treats.

Classic games like sack racing, ring tosses and activities like face painting and water jumpy houses keep the kids moving to burn off all that energy (and I’m sugar!).

What an amazing and decadent party! Truly any kid’s dream come true.

Have you ever been to a circus or carnival party?
