Well, I successfully threw my best friend a carnival themed birthday party and it was a blast! But the clean up, not so much. But everything was worth it to see how happy she was!
We cooked hot dogs, complete with the carnival hot dog trays, there was a popcorn bar, cupcakes, cookies and jell-o-shots!
I bought items for a photo booth and a thing to put your face in! I got all of this stuff at a decent price on amazon!
We had a few carnival games, bottle ring toss (I forgot to take a picture of it), a duck drinking game (you picked one and it told you what you had to drink) and balloon darts! There was even a pinata!
There was about a group of 10 people that got there before Brittany did so we hung out for a little before she got there. When I knew she was on the way we went upstairs and I had everyone hide, I met Britt at the door and walked her into the kitchen where everyone was hiding and she was only surprised by 2 people because the others didn't pop out. So surprise ruined. haha. But how often does a surprise party go as planned?
After we played around with the photo booth for a little and played some corn hole and ate some dinner, it was finally time to start my favorite part. Some of us decided to take Britt on a scavenger hunt. She would have to think back to some memories she shared with one of us and figure out who it was, go find them, take a jell-o-shot and then move on to the next person. I think she really enjoyed it and she got to think back to some good times! The best part was some people hid from her and her trying to find them was so funny!
Overall the night was so much fun! I am so glad we did a carnival themed party because it was a blast!! And now I can cross another thing off my 101 in 1001 list!
Don't miss a thing ~ Follow along!
