Vintage Carnival Theme Inspiration Board

Vintage Carnival Theme: Perfect for a Baby Shower or Birthday Party

(Did you guys miss me? Thanks so much for being patient as I spent last week moving – things were way too hectic for me, but I’m back!)

As a kid an even as an adult, I just LOVE the carnival! I think it is an adorably creative idea to do a vintage carnival theme for either a baby shower or birthday party! You could really go all out with the decor, games, and menu for this theme – adding all your childhood carnival favorites to the celebration! Pinwheels, prize ribbons, popcorn, cotton candy, bean bag toss, apple bobbing, big tops, elephants, balloons, tickets, and so much more would just make this party F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S! You can choose a pastel color palette or the traditional red and white stripes with kraft brown colored elements. In addition, if the party is for a girl you can do different pink hues or for a boy you can use different blue hues – sky’s the limit in pulling off this adorable vintage carnival theme.

I actually did a DIY vintage carnival party for my nieces birthday party a couple years ago – check out the inspirational photos! (See more photos in my FB album.) Everyone had a blast and it was so much fun orchestrating the party and seeing it come together! Here is some more vintage carnival inspiration that I think you’ll love!

Elephant Baby Shower

Elephant Baby Shower Inspiration Board

For this week’s Inspiration Board Tuesday I decided to put together an inspiration board for a lovely elephant baby shower! I love the use of elephants as a focal piece for a baby shower because they are super cute and not overused – they can be made to look cute and cuddly in various colors and patterns as you’ll see below. The awesome thing too is that this theme can be used for a boy or a girl!

When it comes to selecting a color palette it is most common to go with pink (for girls) and blue (for boys), but with summer around the corner I thought it would be creatively thinking outside the box plus more fun to go with a vibrant blue and orange color palette for this elephant baby shower.

As you can see from the inspiration board the decor can be simple yet beautiful. Buy or make some sort of banner or garland to hang, use simple centerpieces such as flowers/plants, bring out the color palette with the linen and paper products, tie in the theme with the cake and favors, and line up some fun games! It’s always nice to add some decor elements such as elephants in a picture frame or elephant cutouts on the table to add to the overall theme.

Some other creative color palette options for this elephant baby shower theme would be gray and blue, charcoal gray and white, yellow and gray, light green and turquoise blue, fuchsia and pink, yellow and pink, green and white, green and charcoal gray, red and turquoise blue, black and white with gold accents, and purple and gray.

Garden Party Kid’s Birthday

Garden Party Birthday for Kid’s

Planning a kid’s birthday party? Let them have fun in the dirt while teaching them about plants and flowers – let them connect with their “green thumb”. Can you tell that I enjoy and appreciate Spring and all that it has to offer? I think that this is a very creative and fun birthday party theme. For fun, why not let the kid’s plant seeds or a potted plant in your yard; show them some of the good and bad garden bugs, pass out planting pot favors filled with a shovel, seeds, gardening gloves, and other goodies; show them various flowers or fruits and vegetables in your garden – explaining the process from seed to growth and how to care for them; let them paint flowering pots for fun; and develop a light menu full of healthy and creative bites like the samples you see below!

Beach Bridal Shower Inspiration Board

Beach Bridal Shower

 
You are in for a real treat – with Spring here and summer around the corner -this week’s Inspiration Board Tuesday pick is a beach themed bridal shower! Living in southern CA I must admit that I am pretty spoiled with all the lovely  local beaches to choose from + the lovely weather we usually have year-round! For those brides that love the beach and may not have one nearby or have the weather for a beach celebration, why not plan a beautiful beach bridal shower – a perfect theme to host at a venue or a private home. For this week’s beach bridal shower inspiration board I decided to stay with the blue and tan hues with white and brown accents, however depending on the season and your creativeness you can definitely change the color palette. For a beach bridal shower you will want to collect seashells, seahorses, starfish, sand (in vases/centerpieces), coral, and anything else that is representative of the beach and sprinkle around the venue to create the perfect beach decor. This theme is so simplistic yet serene and beautiful – check out my inspiration board below!

SHARE WITH ME: Which color palette did you like the best? In addition to the two color palettes above you could also do pink and white, pink & ivory, & pink and fuchsia pink for a girl. For a baby boy you could do baby blue and gray, blue and ivory, gray and ivory, blue and white, gray and white, or black and white.
