Music is very important factor, and it contributes a lot to the entire atmosphere. If it is a smaller party, just play some carnival music on your speakers, but if it is something bigger, like wedding, you can have your band dressed up for carnival to play for you. You can even go deeper into the theme, and only play music from village carnivals, or big city carnivals, or even opt to Chinese or Japanese carnival music. You can really go crazy on this one.
A party like this is certainly a lot of fun. It is not easy to organize, it may take you some time to figure out everything, but once you do, it will be priceless to see everyone smile and have fun.
