Pink & Orange Carnival Themed Birthday Party

Get ready for some fun! For Aubrey's first birthday, her mom Melissa Dell of Bling Diva Designs designed a carnival themed party that was a blast for the guests of all ages. With a bold pink and tangerine color palette and sparkling details, it was full of prettiness, too! Guests had their fill at a creative hot dog bar, the special request of Melissa's husband, which was stocked with every kind of topping a guest could want for their own custom dog. For sweets, guests enjoyed delicious cupcakes displayed on crystal stands from Tiers of Joy and a variety of festive popcorn flavors.

Of course no carnival themed party would be complete without games, so Melissa set up three stations: ring toss, knock 'em down cans, and a fishing game. We love that the game pieces have been customized with patterns matching the party palette! The kids also received tickets to redeem at the end of the day for prizes. Becca Rillo Photography captured all of the fun and pretty details in these lovely images, and you can see much more in the full gallery!
