Halloween's Carnival Themed Party
Decorations and Activities
Using refrigerator and large appliance boxes, mannequins and a little paint we crafted faux fair booths to really pull the theme together. We had a fortune teller booth set up with Halloween-themed fortune cookies and miracle fish, a "kissing booth" for photos with plastic lip whistles, a creepy admissions booth, and a prize booth where our younger attendees could enter to win raffled goodies. We also hosted a number of festive games! And, seriously, what's Halloween without a hayride?
This year we continued our tradition of creepy cooking contest, and the contestants really brought their A-game! Everything was equally delicious and grotesque-looking... In a good way. We even gave out "hand" made trophies to the winners! We prepared additional fair food like hot dogs, popcorn, peanuts, and cotton candy - and had them handed out by our very own carnival-style vendor. "Get your peanuts! Fresh roasted peanuts, here!"
Gypsies, clowns, and freaks! Of course we made it mandatory to dress in carnival-inspired costumes, and handed out another batch of awesome hand-made trophies to this year's best dressed. It was amazing to see so many people embrace the theme and think outside of the box!
