Because it was time for our county fair, we decided to use a playful vintage carnival/fair theme. As a twist for this playful girl baby shower, we used a purple and aqua color scheme with carnival stripes and dots all over. Various vintage carnival concepts were used throughout the shower.
What People Ate
The carnival wouldn’t have been complete without the traditional carnival food. Sausage dogs with onions and peppers, macaroni and cheese bites, French fries, and mini corn dogs were just some of the carnival favorites that were served.
What People Drank
Freshly made lemonade was served in vintage mason jars filled with lemon slices.
Desserts included mini funnel cakes, chocolate covered cheesecake pops, and caramel apples.
A purple and aqua “Sweets & Treats” table was set up for guests to help themselves and fill up the “Thank you” goody bags. Treats such as swirly pops, rock candy sticks, gumballs, jelly beans, M&Ms, gummy bears, gummy cokes, salt water taffy, and adorable cotton candy cups adorned the table along with cookies and the cake. Cookies were in the shape of carnival favorites; a carnival tent, a popcorn box, cotton candy, and an admission ticket with the baby’s name and date of the shower.
