Caribbean Carnival Birthday Party! (& Surprise GIVEAWAY!)

Caribbean Carnival Island Birthday Party

Caribbean Carnival Birthday Party!

I absolutely love this Caribbean Carnival Themed Party that a friend threw for her son’s 1st birthday celebration! Brightly colored balloons and flowered centerpieces created a vibrant and tropical atmosphere that added to the especially fun feel of the day.

Of course, I cannot miss highlighting the absolutely delicious desserts: tarts, lemon meringue, red velvet cupcakes… these lovely treats were tasty as well as beautiful, making for an eye-catching spread. The buttercream and pineapple flavored island birthday cake was a truly inspired addition, and then there’s the cotton candy- a creative idea for any child’s event!

Our hostess entertained all of the party’s little attendees with spirited games of limbo and a conga line, and guests were treated to some WONDERFUL steel pan music from a live musician. Attention to details like music and games that really reflect your theme is a great way to get guests involved and in this case, feel like they are really in ‘the tropics’!
