{My Parties} Carnival 1st Birthday

Dessert Table_Let Them Eat Sweets

This weekend was my sweet niece’s 1st birthday party! My sister wanted to have a really fun birthday theme for her daughter’s party and what is funner than a Carnival! We set out right away to do “research” on Pinterest by creating a Carnival Party board. There are so many great and cute ideas it was hard to choose.

The party was held at my mom’s backyard, who brought such great ideas and creativity to the party. It started out as a damp morning but the rain held up for our festivities. Take a look at how it all turned out!

The dessert table was filled with all kinds of delicious carnival goodies. We had cupcakes, marshmallow carnival peanuts, Saltwater Taffy, Caramel covered popcorn with peanuts, etc.

The Cake table was across the yard under a white tent. So pretty!

I saw a different version of this Ferris Wheel cupcake holder on Pinterest and knew it would be perfect for the party. So I found this one for a great price.
