Are you getting a picnic / carnival vibe? I've always loved this colour theme for a carnival; soft pastels. (And do you notice the colours are kind of similar to my new blog design too? Totally into these colours at the moment!)

I've always been a sucker for a carnival theme. I know if I don't do it for our farewell, I probably won't have the chance to do it again - a 40th carnival party is probably getting a little old!

I'm trying to keep the scale of the party in check coz really we have a lot going on with the move and all, but I'd really like to create this kind of vibe. We'll have it in a nearby park, and enjoy hot dogs, popcorn and ice cream I'm thinking - easy and totally family friendly!
You can see my carnival pin board here. I'll see which ideas I actually get around to making (who else pins way more than is humanly possible to accomplish in one lifetime?!). But I'm looking forward to planning one last party here in Australia.

What are you planning for this weekend? Me, getting these party invites out and designing Ellie's birth announcement!
Enjoy! xo
