REAL PARTY SUBMISSION: Vintage Carnival Back to School

The lovely Dorangela from Two Prince Theatre Bakery recently styled a fabulous vintage carnival back to school block party. I love the idea of celebrating the beginning of a new school term, a tradition that is not as prevalent in Australia. I love how the whole street was involved and it looks like so much fun was had with all the traditional carnvial style games. Wonderful work Dorangela!

As Dorangela tells ''Our entire street got together and threw a big Vintage Carnival. Two Prince Bakery Theater styled the party and Bushel & Peck Papers designed the invitations and all the food and game signage.

Each neighbor set up a carnival themed activity in front of their house. We had professional face painters, balloon artist, a water slide bouncer, photo booth, balloon darts, ring toss and even a prize table! We ate old fashioned freshly popped popcorn and cotton candy, corn dogs and lots of sweet treats like Marshmallow clowns!

We had a great time celebrating the end of summer and another school year for our children. It was extra special for me because my son was beginning Kindergarten!
