This is what was shared about the party- “I adore carousels and thankfully my little one does too! Her first ride at 5 months, was at Pier 39 in San Francisco. A couple of years ago, I saw a beautiful carousel styled dessert table by Sharnel Dollar Designs, for a Mary Poppins party, and I knew at that moment that one day I wanted to create my own for a carousel themed party. Creating the table was certainly a labor of love! I cannot remember how many hours my husband and I spent at Home Depot trying to perfect the design and measurements, cutting PVC pipes, looking for the right cutting tools, etc.

Some of my favorite details were:

-Designing my daughter’s dress and invitations

-Finding peonies at the flower market out of season!!! after calling several vendors without luck

-Photos of her riding various carousels in carousel frames

The DIY elements were:

The carousel table using poster board, PVC pipes, ribbons, spray paint, printed horses on foam board, and my amazing sister-in-law, Nancy’s, and brother-in law, Brian’s, Silhouette Cameo to cut several motifs for the edges, with digital files bought on Etsy.

Flower arrangements, with flowers from the San Francisco and Oakland flower markets

Cotton candy cones, cones painted with Wilton Pearl Dust in white and pink

Her Party hat and invitations

Spray painting carousel photo frames found on ebay.”

    May the person who created the carousel awning contact me please at my email address? I was wanting to create one myself for my daughters 1st birthday party and I need some help on what to get and how to create it.

    Hey! I too would love to know how the carousel table made of pvc pipes was made. I want to make this for my daughters first birthday so bad. Please contact me [email protected]

      Will do!

      If you look at the vendors list, it has a name and link for a Silouette file. That might be the place that this party stylist got the carousel. This isn’t a Kara’s Party Ideas styled party or I would have more info for you. Sorry! XOXO!

    Hello! I wanted to have these invites made for my daughter’s 1st birthday party. I do not have a way to cut them though. Is there at chance you would sell me the design(I love the simplicity of the carousel) and maybe give me advice on where to go to buy the cut out part? Thank you so much!

    Hey I’m throwing a baby shower for my sister and I really love those invitations, did you make them yourself or is there a company I can contact for those ?

    • Mandy Bradshaw says:

      This isn’t a Kara’s Party Ideas party, so your best bet is to reach out directly to the party stylist. Her name and link are in the first paragraph of the party post. XOXO!
