Vintage Carnival 2nd Birthday Party
Vintage Carnival Party Details:This is what Tarah said about planning the party-
“We chose to go with a vintage Carnival theme as my husband has a large Italian family and with my family and our friends with children of various ages, theres a little something for everyone. The vintage carnival aspect was inspired by the adorable popcorn bags I found at Michaels craft stores and we ran with it!
A fun photo booth with playful props from Party City and a #Mattiasturns2 hashtag sign gave the kids a great way to ham it up for the photographer and even get some parents in on the action!
Thunderbird Community Center in Vancouver, BC was the perfect location for the party. They have a great space with a gym they set up with bouncy castles, balloon makers, and face painters to keep the kids occupied and worked so well with the carnival theme. The party space also provided for a safe area to set up the monogrammed M piñata made by the talented Swank Social.
We decided to go with foods and snacks youd find at a Carnival: mini hotdogs and hamburgers from Cotto Catering, popcorn, cotton candy and old-fashioned Pop Shoppe Soda from Glenburn Dairy along with some healthy veggies and dip made by me for balance ;-) Of course there was also the candy buffet with delectable treats from Stickys Candy Shop for the kids to add whatever their hearts desired to their gift bags.
We chose to forgo traditional gift bags of toys and games and instead had amazingly adorable decorated cookies by the talented Julie Moore of The Whisk as a takeaway thank you gift. She created absolutely perfect cookies in our color theme that read Mattias turns 2.
Everything worked out so perfectly and my little man had the best time!”
