Caroline's Country Fair Birthday Party (45 photos)
CAROLINE’S COUNTRY FAIR
Come one, come all to celebrate Caroline’s 8th birthday! Blue skies prevailed for a day of festivities honoring our daughter, Caroline. The birthday girl’s outfit was fashioned using country inspired red, yellow, blue, and green fabrics in keeping with the theme.
A picture gallery of Caroline “Through the Years” provided the backdrop for her celebration.
Red and blue gingham table cloths, burlap covered potted plants adorned with gingham bows, as well as country fair themed flags, banners, and colored balloons flying in the wind beckoned the guests.
The children could not help but feel a sense of excitement as they entered the yard to see what surprises awaited them. At the check-in table, the Caroline’s friends were given beige cotton drawstring bags trimmed in red gingham with their name written on the tag, in which to collect the prize tickets they would win playing the various carnival games. And no fair would be complete without lots of prizes!
Just as the brightly colored invitation had announced, this was going to be a day of “Food, fun, games, and prizes.”

Everyone enjoyed playing games, winning tickets, and exchanging them for prizes at the prize booth. Everyone was a winner at this fair! Although the children carefully counted their tickets and selected their prizes, there was enough cotton candy, gum ball packs, and bubbles to go around regardless the number of tickets they had. Their personalized gift/favor bags that stored their winnings were kept safely behind the prize booth and were ready for them to carry home at the end of the day.
A departing guest provided the ultimate compliment, “Caroline had a really great fair!” The birthday girl agreed!
