Hey Bumpies! We’re super excited to launch our Birthday Spotlight series today — each week we’ll be featuring fabulous kids’ birthday celebrations from our very own community and around the web to give you inspiration and ideas for planning your own party. Remember, a child’s birthday is not just about turning a year older — it’s also a chance for parents to celebrate surviving another twelve months of parenthood! Check out this fun and festive carnival party — a great theme for kids of any age.

Birthday Kid: Cooper (full disclosure: my older son!)

Party Details: This party was very much inspired by color. We filled up the party room with 100 bright jewel tone balloons and created a playful, personalized sweets table with candy boards inspired by Amy Atlas. Family members wore personalized red pocket aprons like true carnies! Cooper and his friends played classic carnival games and inked themselves with temporary tattoos.

Where to Buy: Balloons: Balloon Saloon / Cupcakes: Brooklyn Frosted / Tattoos : Tattly / Games and treat boxes: Oriental Trading / Aprons: NeedAprons / Graphic design and decor: DIY by us!
