carnival games for circus baby shower

As I posted at the beginning of the week {here}, I co-hosted a circus themed baby shower this past weekend.  To go along with the theme, we decided to set-up carnival games outside for the guests instead of traditional baby shower games.  The games were tough but a hit with the guests...especially the guys (the shower was co-ed).

Here are the games all set-up.

To make the signs, I picked up some unfinished frames from the clearance aisle at Michael's and painted them with a couple coats of Rustoleum pink spray paint.  The inserts for the frames were all made using fonts from  

Rings - Amazon
Crate - Home Goods
Coke - Costco

I picked up this tray from Salvation Army for $2 and spray painted it white for the fish bowl game.

Mini Vases - Dollar Tree
Ping Pong Balls - (not shown) - Dick's Sporting Goods

And if you're ever shopping for rubber ducks, keep in mind...they don't all float!  The ones from Michael's did not float which is why those ducks are chilling on the table.

Rubber Ducks - Michael's
Floating Ducks - Amazon
Metal Bin - Home Goods

circus baby shower

Hello there!  Sorry, it's been awhile since I posted.  Things got busy at work and in my spare time, I have been working on the {condo project} for my friend and a {baby shower} for another friend.  The baby shower was this past weekend and I am so excited to finally share some pictures.  The theme was a surprise so I didn't want to post anything before the shower and give it away!

The baby shower had a circus theme and was super fun to decorate.  I'll share more details on the decorations this week but here is what it all looked like.
