Hi Deirdre, we recently held a Spring carnival with a circus theme.We also had simple side show type games with small prizes from the cheepo shops. Our food was also themed as we had mini dagwood dogs,hot chips,ice cream cones.We purchased containers of fairy floss and re bagged this into small zip lock bags and gave this to all as they left.We combined this with a staff free dress day, this created a feeling of excitement for the residents leading up to the event. We were inundated with clowns,strong men, ring masters and we hired a professional clown to come and make balloon animals for all the residents.Some decorations were purchased but many were created by our residents at craft activities.We catered for approx. 60 people and it was greatly received by our residents,volunteers and staff.Have fun with it you can't fail.
