River + Dawson’s Carnival Party

This year, due to Covid, we decided to throw a combined birthday party for our boys! It’s no secret that I love to go all out on birthday parties, & I easily talked myself into doing even more than normal since teeechnically it was two parties in one!

We decided on a carnival theme, and I’d be lying if i didn’t say that this was probably my favorite theme yet! That being said, it was also a LOT of work, planning, setup, etc & not for the faint of heart! You can check out allllll the things below, but keep an eye out for my favorite parts – the world’s most perfect moon bounce, the fabulous balloon artist, our entire drink station setup, the popcorn box favors & not to mentions the fresh popcorn & snocone machine! Okay, so I basically listed the entire party but oh well!

Special shoutout as always to my Mother-in-Law, Cherie. She is the party planning genius behind all of this, and when I say I could not have pulled this off without her, I truly mean it. From spending hours of her time planning, searching for & ordering just the right things, to hiring our balloon artist & renting our treat machines, plus helping setup and sharing her insight on any and every decision I needed help with. Truly – most of the recognition belongs to her & I am so so thankful that she helps make my birthday party dreams a reality year after year!
