When Laura asked for my help in planning her youngest daughter's birthday party, I was so excited to help. She had chosen a carnival theme and we had so much fun bouncing ideas off of each other. We spent hours pinning pictures and sharing our ideas. After much debate and going back and forth between a traditional (pink) girl's color scheme, we decided that the aqua and red would give the bright and fun feel of a summer carnival. Our husbands might think us to be a little "over the top" with all of the details we planned, but I was happy with the end result.
