Party Guest}Carnival Themed Birthday

Today I would like to introduce you to Larissa of Just Another Day in Paradise.

Larissa is the mom of a cute little one year old and a couple of other cuties too!

After finishing up her job of being in charge of the school’s carnival Larissa decided to carry over the theme to her son’s one year old birthday party!

Lots of fun carnival food – popcorn, cotton candy and soda pop!

How  cute is that!

Larissa created the personal popcorn cake for her son from fondant.  The biggest complaint I hear about fondant is that it doesn’t taste good.  Well, Larissa has a recipe for marshmallow fondant on her blog that tastes good and is easy to make – be sure and check it out!

The birthday boy loved his cake!

For the rest of the guests Larissa made cute little blue cotton candy cupcakes.  She learned that you need to wait until right before serving though to add the cotton candy or it melts into the frosting – good tip Larissa!
Larissa also created the cute little birthday hat the birthday boy is wearing.  For a tutorial on how to make it check out this blog post.

Thanks to Larissa for sharing her fun carnival themed birthday party!

If you would like to be a party guest here at Your Homebased Parties please send me an email or leave a comment!  We’d love to see your party!!

    Thanks so much. I am pretty much growing more and more in love with your sites every day. I gave you a thank you shout out on my blog today. I would love to keep sending you party ideas that I have done and will do.

    PS after going through your homebased mom recipe catalog, I am pretty sure I want to make it all!

    Thanks a ton!

    Loved this post! (maybe because I had little ones, so I could totally see myself doing this party!) I looked around her blog and also found the golf birthday party. So cute and creative- you should feature that one next!
