October is party/festival season in our neck of the woods. October 28th is my daughters birthday but her party will be on the 26th this year. And on October 23 is the school fall festival which im in charge of. I love every min of PTO.
So i decided to share another party with yall. One i did year before last. Okay so everyone tells me Laci stop going all out on parties your daughter will not remember ! Like hell i say 10 years from now we will look back on pictures and laugh and laugh. And 1 day when my daughter is a mom i want her to understand that her kids birthday is a HUGE deal.
That year i picked carnival as the focus. We had sand art, duck pond, tattoos, face paint, photo booth, pick a pocket game, sack race, and so much more.
We set up little stations for each activity that my husband made out of wood pallets.
My daughter wore a custom clown outfit my sister made. And we finished the party off with the inflatable jump house with slide.
For the food i had popcorn, peanuts, pretzels, hotdogs, corndogs and funnel cakes.
For the duck pond game if you won which every duck was a win… shh dont tell ha-ha you got to take home a real fish in a cute small bowl with cute rocks in the bottom.
The sand art station was also a hit i had all colors of sand purchased from orential trading and they could do a bottle sand art or a necklace sand art and take it home at the end of the party.
The pick a pocket game was always a favorite it was a board covered in cloth wirh fabric pockets and you stick your hand in one to pull out a prize at this party all the prizes were from bath & body works small antibacterial sanitizer or travel size lotions.
I had the face painting and tattoo booth together i had boy and girl tattoos and both boy and girl paint colors everyone wanted more than one and we were able to accommodate that.
The sack race was a major hit and we got so many laughs of course my husband won he is so competitive he wouldnt let a 1 year old win but we will continue to let him think he is always #1
