This trick will work for almost any party, but is especially fun for these Carnival Party invites. A few weeks before your party go to a park, or other place that fits your theme, and take a few photos of the birthday kid. You can use a photo on the invitations or to have a few extra pics of the party. These photos will capture your child’s personality. And since they’ll be taken when you aren’t distracted by running the party, lighting candles, or cluttered backgrounds it will be stress free for everyone!
