Carousel Party Supplies

It’s been a big few weeks here at Life’s Little Celebrations with the launch of the new “Celebrating Little Ones” magazine! If you still haven’t had a read make sure you do here.

Now onto this weeks blog party supplies round up! One of the fondest memories I have from my childhood is of a music box that mum would wind up at bedtime, and I’d listen to it before falling asleep, watching the carousel of horses go round and round. It was pink and white and I thought it was just magical.

These days, the song still plays in my head when I see the gorgeous vintage carousels at the carnival, and I’m equally delighted when I see so many talented stylists using it as inspiration for a magical party theme. It’s the perfect mix of vintage nostalgia, horses (everyone’s favourite animal!) and girliness.

Take a look at some of these beautiful examples.

Like all good party themes, the carousel provides a great foundation of elements to be inspired by. Using striped candy cane poles, elegant horses and your choice of colour scheme, we’ve found some great items from our LLC vendors to inspire you and help pull it all together.
