Carnival Pre-Party Planning


I'm just going to put the whole process online.  My sister is working on her end and it gets kind of difficult communicating.

Theme: Carnival/circus birthday party for two toddlers
Time: July
Invitations: Sent out 6/8/15

*Tables-buy a $50 food table so mine does not need to be borrowed
