Vintage Backyard Carnival
I was able to pull a few bowler hats from my closet & my roommate had some goofy wigs for people to be silly. The backyard has this cool old park bench, so a cheap prop like a newspaper gives party guests an opportunity to recreate an iconic picture, even if its quirky way.Source: Photo by Kiano Moju
In theory, going to a carnival entails a day filled of childlike fun with games, Ferris Wheels and lots of yummy fried foods and confections. Unfortunately, you have to wait for the fair to come to town.
Well it’s pretty hard to simulate the big games and roller coasters at home, but there is plenty of fun carnival food you can make at home, and let’s get real, your friends will be overjoyed at the idea of having an afternoon of boozing & indulging on all the foods that are bad for you, but taste so good.
This is the perfect backyard party. Use old carnival colors like red, yellow, blue & white throughout. Get plenty of balloons, and don’t forget to put a bundle in front of the house to cue guests where you are. Red and white checkered patterns are back in trend so old school decor should be easy to find.
