This girly Pink Carousel Themed Birthday Party was designed for one of our own in the SunshineShabby Family! Little Sophia, who was turning 1, much to everyone’s disbelief, as this year has just flown by! So we thought a carousel theme was perfect with the following invitation wording “The carousel of life turns so fast … it’s hard to believe a year has passed!” Sophia loved every minute of her party and just loved being around all her friends.
Sophia’s beautiful Carousel Party Candy Table included our “Happy Birthday” banner, Straw Flags, Cupcake Toppers, and Food Labels, which are all available in our store SunshineParties on Etsy, as well as many yummy sweet and treats! We handmade the fabric garland and the table runners just to add an extra touch of pink!
My best discovery for the party was the yummiest (and easiest) coconut ice ever. I got the recipe from Just Easy Recipes and it was an absolute hit! There was not a square left and it was so pretty and pink!
We also decided to have a Painted Ponies Popcorn Stand. Everyone LOVED it … adults and kids! With so much sugar around it was nice to have a savory snack to munch on as you ran after your little one!
Here are some other healthy savory snack ideas for kids:
- Pita bread with hummus and tzatziki dips
- Scones and quiches are a great and easy party snack for adults at a kids party. Thank you to Isla Louise’s Food Company for all your amazing quiches.
- Healthy whole wheat sandwiches with cream cheese, pesto and salami, as well as chicken mayo.
For dessert, we had a stunning red velvet cake from Marlise Ross Cakes! Absolutely beautiful and it tasted just as amazing. Guests also enjoyed making and eating Magical Unicorn Horns with ice cream cones, icing and lots of different candies!
For the favors, we had colorful carousel lollipops with thank you tags from SunshineParties. The day was captured by Tunya Thomas Photography.
