Here Comes the Carnival!

Ethan's 4th birthday is just under two months away and I already feel like I am running out of time to get things done!  This year he is having a carnival party.  What a fun, fun, fun theme!!!!  I have to tell you he is SO excited!  The poor boy has to suffer through his cousins' birthdays (all girls) and his sister's before his rolls around.  After every girly themed birthday party, he'll say to me in the sweetest voice, "My party next Momma?"  And I say, "Yes, Ethan, your party is next." 

Ethan is really one of THE sweetest little boys.  He will defend and protect his Momma with all his heart and is kind to everyone.  He can make friends at the McDonald's playland.  I am just in love with him!  So, as every momma wants to do, I really want to make his birthday party special.

In case it wasn't obvious with the ice cream party we had, I am in LOVE with the color combo of light blue/teal and red.  That is the color theme we I we are going with for the party :)  I also want to try and give it a vintage fell.  Not sure if I'll succeed at that, but I am up to the challenge!

Fortunately, I was lucky enough to win a giveaway by Pink Peppermint Paper and was able to get the most adorable carnival invites for the party.  Eleanor was so great to work with and I couldn't be happier with how the invites turned out! 

I also turned to my friend Betsy from Belly Feathers for adorable vintage carnival signs for the parties.  These are just the cutest.  You really need to check her shop out!  I can't wait to receive these.

Unfortunately, I cannot pair down the amount of great ideas running in my head for this party, so this blog is going to be consumed by carnival party ideas in the coming months :)
