Cupcakes and Carousels 2nd Birthday Party Via Kara's Party Ideas | Kara' #cupcake #carousels #birthday #party

This adorable CUPCAKES AND CAROUSELS SECOND BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Stephanie Hanna of Brag about Baby.

What a darling theme for a birthday party.  Any boy or girl would love it. It has so many creative ideas that could be implemented into all sorts of occasions.  Some of my favorite elements are:

  • The cupcake horse toppers
  • The Happy Birthday banner
  • The carousel horse suckers
  • The ticket booth photo opp
  • The invitation
  • The cute “2″ cookies
  • and MORE!

Stephanie said this about planning the party- “We were so excited to have McKenzie’s 2nd Birthday party at Sugar Sand Park right next to the carousel. We had lots of sweet treats, a ticket booth photo op, clown that did face painting and balloon animals. We had hula hoops and beach balls for the little ones to play with. Carousel music and carousel rides made the party complete. I started with my favorite part… the dessert table. I used white linens so the color scheme: pink, mint green and gold would pop!”

    I made all of the cupcake toppers, banners etc with my cricut. The gold carousel cupcake holder I found online and spray painted it. My aunt photographed the carousel and I mod podged the canvas with the gold glitter. If you want to purchase a digital image of the carousel email me [email protected].

      Yes the ticket booth I made from wooden crates I found at Joann’s and the spindles at Home Depot. I painted it and cut the letters with my Cricut,
