Haven't hosted, but you totally made me remember the carnival birthday party from Jon & Kate Plus 8.

Yes for ODDs 1st birthday. It turned out great, IMO. I may have some pictures if you'd like to see them

$700-$800
I am looking at this package;
THE CARNIVAL PARTY!
We will deliver, set up and tear down an inflatable bouncer (please be sure you have enough room!!). A standard outlet must be dedicated to it. A Waiver must be signed upon delivery. Depending on the size of the children, up to 10 kids can bounce at the same time. One of our clowns will arrive and wow everyone with facepainting, balloon twisting, and cotton candy!

up to 30 kids, Bouncer for the day and 1 Clown for 2 Hours, $400.00

I can add popcorn and snow cones for $30 each as well.

I am no good with DIY. I could maybe do the games DIY, that's it though.

I have for my 4 year old son.

It turned out awesome. We rented two bounce houses, a sno cone machine and a cotton candy machine. We made a few carnival games too. I bought tickets so everytime a kid played a game they would get a ticket to pick out a prise for their goody bags to take home. I have a cute carnival tent that I put the prises in so at the end the kids put their tickets in the jar and went into the tent and filled their bag.

We had all carnival food and drinks. We also rented some Zoo animals and had pony rides. We also had a clown and a magician.

It was the best neighborhood party ever and the kids had a blast.

We gave out tickets at every game. This is the duck game, we just used a marker to write an amount of tickets on and had them in water. Behind it you can kind of see out 'pin' game. I had bags that they threw to knock over the Tootsie roll containers. AND behind that you can see some of our toss a bag board.

The kids were suppose to turn in tickets for the prizes, but we ran out of time and I ended up just filling in the baskets with a bit of everything
