Party Planning - Carnival Prize Party Favors

I am really getting excited about planning Cooper's third birthday party! I'm stealing ideas getting inspiration from Adriana at and baby makes three who planned a phenomenol party for her son's first birthday last month. You should check it out - she's been featured on many sites within the blogosphere. I can only hope that my scaled down version is as successful!

Now, what's a carnival without prizes???

I purchased party favor "prizes" from Hey Yo Yo on etsy. I've discovered that etsy is an amazing forum in which to find unique handmade and/or vintage (or vintage looking) items, like these:

Cute, cute, cute Clown Straws and

Bird Whistles! Remember these??? You fill them with water and them make a really annoying bird tweeting sound??? Love. it.

You can't have a carnival without this stuff:

I found these at the dollar spot at Target.

I also spent an hour at trying to decide what my favorites were. I finally decided on these:

{Ice Cream Shooters}


and these:

Oh, and remember the invitation I showed you here? I was planning to print them at home, but I found a great deal at where I was able to order free 25 4" x 8" cards for just the shipping cost of $4.99! They came in the mail yesterday, and I am thrilled with them!!

Seven weeks to go and counting...

Love the favors...very cute idea! FYI sams club sells a pack of tubs of cotton candy. I think like 9 dollars for 12 or something...I know they are less than a dollar a piece...just an idea
