This fun fair party collection offers stunning different plate designs which gives you the opportunity to add more texture and interesting visuals to the kids tablescape.
Is it the cotton candy plate or the oversized scalloped carousel plate? Or is it the carousel die-cut plate? I honestly can’t pick a favorite. Which one is your favorite?

Put together gift bags filled with goodies the kids can take home, such as a cotton candy coloring pages, crayons or markers, and temporary carnival tattoos.
The kids can have fun with coloring pages while socializing and enjoying carnival treats.
