Carnival Themed 1st Birthday

Design Inspiration

I wanted bright colors and mix matched patterns.  So I used red and white stripes, red and white chevron, yellow chevrons,  and polka dots.

Decorating Style

A lot of DIY projects for the Party.  I liked having the number 1 everywhere.  I put them in jars of bubble gum, jars of M&M's, sticking out of candy centerpieces and some blue 1st made out of chocolate.

Favorite Items

The smash cakes my husband made.  He made a few samples  days earlier to make sure it looked the way I envisioned it to look.  He used white cake mix and food coloring to make each color.  I loved them so much I want to have them at more of our parties.

Also I loved the wind up monkey and elephants.  I found them at the dollar store just by chance.  I have them on display on my son's bookcase now.


I feel fabric is very important to this look.  Add as much colors and patterns as you can.  It needs to be bright and fun.  Don't expect to get it all at one place or party store.  It takes a few different places and a bit of shopping around but it is worth it.

    I love the prints and colors!! I’m on Amazon but can’t really find it. Did you buy the fabric by yards? Can you give me more details.
