Backyard Carnival Decorating
Plan an easy backyard carnival with an assortment of stations where fun games can be played and good food can be eaten. We have a variety of colorful decorations to give you ideas that can be used to decorate plain tables that you may already have. There’s no need to construct booths from scratch.
Simply take a folding table, drape with a colorful plastic table cover, and attach some metallic fringed table skirting to hide the table legs. Then tie a bunch of colorful latex balloons
to metallic balloon weights and place on either end of the table. You can set up simple, pre-packaged games behind each stand, like: a Duck Fishing Game, a Clown Ring Toss Game, a Bowling Game, or even a sign up for a Potato Sack race. If you want ideas for creative, homemade games; stack empty soda cans, take a bunch of colorful bean bags, and see who can knock over the most.
Don’t stop decorating with just the game booths; an
Outdoor Carnival Decorating Kit comes with almost everything you’ll need to decorate any surrounding trees or create sections for special events. We even carry the multi-color pennant banners and multi-color metallic fringe drape separately, so you can be sure to have enough to decorate your entire carnival.
