My daughter loves anything with horses (neighs as she calls them). When thinking of themes for her second birthday, I thought a carousel theme would be perfect for a little girl's second birthday. I decided to add a floral element to the party and chose theme colors of pinks, purples, and gold.
There were many DIY projects for this project. My husband, mother in law, and I made the carousel centerpiece. We decorated a wreath with flowers and greens to serve as the top of the carousel and to add another floral element. I made the floral letters from paper mache letters, foam, and silk flowers. All of the banners were made by me using me cricut. I designed a wall of paper flowers with a handpainted gold glitter frame and a number 2 in the center. I bought paper fans from the target and decorated those with paper flowers. Cookie jars wrapped in raffle tickets served as vases on my mantle. My sister in law designed all of the signs for the party and all of the favor and food tags.
For food, we served fun finger foods. We had a slider bar, mini hot dogs, tater tots and mac and cheese. For dessert, we served cupcakes, carousel themed cookies, pink chocolate popcorn, and trail mix. As a favor, we gave kids bubbles, cotton candy on sugar cones, and custom wrapped candy bars.
