I know that it is still very cold in many parts of the US (and all over the world); however, we thought that we would dream a little dream of summer with this sweet celebration! Meet Kathryn, aka Mama Bird, who in her own words is..."Hyper, never sit still Wife, Mom, Haircolor Expert, inspiring chef, cupcake baker, organic growing, garden loving, wine drinking, obsessed with design, entertaining and organization. I read cookbooks as if they were novels and I am a Nigella Lawson/Candice Olsen want-a-be. I love my family, my life and throwing a party! I have been blessed with a Handy Hubby and a wonderful son." Wow, I am exhausted just reading your bio, Kat. Before we share with you the amazing party Kathryn threw for her son Jack's 3rd birthday (using our Vintage Carnival invitation and accessories), take a peek at her fantastic blog aptly named, Mama Bird's Nest.
Without further ado, step inside the Big Top as Kat shares with us pictures from Jack's party. By the way, Kathryn made EVERYTHING you see (with the exception of our invitation and printables). We are SO impressed and you will be too!
A carnival would not be the same without the "stick your head in the wooden cut-out for a photo op"! In this case, the wooden cut-out is an adorable little red jalopy.
What a gorgeous, inviting punch on a hot day; complete with coordinating cups, straws, napkins and tablecloth.
The water bottles were wrapped with our printable water bottle labels (in the coordinating carnival theme).
How cute is this hat?

Kat draped our printable accessory banner on her wooden fence and then her lollipop tree and cupcake stand with coordinating cupcakes took center stage! Look at the fun red and white striped hat with the blue poms and streamers atop the lollipop tree.
Popcorn anyone? Party rentals like popcorn and cotton candy machines made such a great addition this party!
Kathryn, thank you so much for sharing these pictures from Jack's happy day. Your special touches, from the lollipop tree to the homemade pinata really made this a "Big Top" event!
