real parties: a pink & green girlie carnival

This stunning soiree is an exclusive feature from the party planners of Eclat Events.  I flipped for it instantly and I know you will too.  The birthday party was created for twin 5 year old girls, so to give the theme a girly twist, they picked a palette of soft pink and lime green- colors inspired by the fashionable look of Lilli Pulitzer.  No detail went unattended... the party included a carnival style tent and games area, baskets filled with prizes, custom vintage party hats  and a fabulous ice cream buffet for dessert.  It’s literally a carnival for the senses!  Read on for further details from Eclat Events...

Everything was custom and personalized; from the invitations, which were silkscreen printed on balloons to be blown up by each guest, the envelop that each kid received at the entrance with custom tickets for each carnival game, to the birthday hats made out of fabric and matching garland.
Vintage carnival music was played in the background, while kids had fun with ball tossing, water squirting games, where each kid got to receive custom wrapped carnival prizes. A dunk tank and a stilt walker were also part of the fun, while a tray of prettily wrapped popcorn and cotton candy was passed around.
A snow cone machine, hot dogs and pink lemonade were part of the menu, and the finishing touch was the beautiful ice cream toppings bar with matching colors and a mini cake for each of the twins.
