Carnival of Curiosities – Not Just For Kids!

It’s true that many carnival themed events are targeted for a younger audience and categorized as outdoor, picnic-type events. However, we’ve proved over the years that alternative carnival themed events geared for adults can be just as much, if not more, fun! Carrying the theme of carnival throughout your event gives a planner plenty of adult-oriented opportunities for games and activities. In reality, it’s a theme that has a magical way of taking the ordinary and making it fun with many versatile options for fun details. Guests are made to feel like they are at the greatest show on earth with a multi-sensory experience with colorful décor, customized fun and games and the smell of fun foods that transport them right to the midway. For Spring and Summer corporate events there’s nothing more fun than an authentic and reinvented carnival event.

In 2014 we had the opportunity to work with a client in creating a custom event called ‘Carnival of Curiosities’ for their corporate guests. By embracing a black and red color scheme it gave a darker and more mysterious twist to the standard red and white carnival palette. Throughout the event we created custom midway games. As guests won games they were rewarded with tickets that they could then redeem for a multitude of prizes at the Prize Booth. In addition to midway games there were also interactive amusement games, like ‘Whack-A-Mole’ and jumbo ‘Connect Four’ to keep guests entertained and mingling. It was a custom experience that those that attended won’t forget any time soon!

When planning your company’s next event we encourage you to consider the fun of a carnival themed event. Connect with us and let us add a creative twist!

Gourmet Cotton Candy Is One Sweet Treat!

Brown Shoes (HI RES)It’s been an exciting fall season at Amusement Masters as we expand into a new market with Gigi’s Gourmet Cotton Candy! A sugary treat that’s perfect for all ages – we just had to add our very own Amusement Masters’ gourmet twist to it. Our cotton candy is made in a wide variety of flavors (some very unique) and each made from air-spun organic evaporated cane juice, using only 100% all-natural flavors and colors. Fat free, Gluten free and pesticide free – the cane juice we use is also produced in a nut-free and dairy-free facility. Cotton candy stations can be incorporated into all types of events, from holiday parties and weddings to bar and bat mitzvah celebrations. Whatever your celebration we have a cotton candy station for you! But before we gush anymore about our sweet treats let us delve into the intriguing history of cotton candy and find out how this treat became so popular.

Electric "Fairy Floss" Candy  Machine Advertisement (1905)

Electric “Fairy Floss” Candy Machine Advertisement (1905)

Once called ‘Spun Sugar,’ cotton candy dates as far back as the 15th century for the social elite in Italy. The creation process back then was long and the ‘sculptor’ would literally melt the sugar and then drizzle it over an object, spending hours creating spectacular table centerpieces paired with fruits. In 1897 a dentist named William Morrison and a confectioner John C. Wharton created the first electric-spun cotton candy machine, coining the name “Fairy Floss” (in Australia they still call cotton candy that!) William and John introduced it to a large audience at the 1904 World’s Fair, selling it for just .25 cents. In 1921, a dentist named Joseph Lascaux invented a similar confection machine but instead of calling it “Fairy Floss” he referred to it as Cotton Candy, which was an instant hit. Slowly the old name faded away and the rest is history!

Cotton Candy ConesOne thing that client’s particularly love about Gigi’s Gourmet Cotton Candy is the variety of delicious flavors that Amusement Masters exclusively offers. Mouth-watering flavors like: Raspberry Rush, Fabulous French Toast, Cookie Dough Delight, Mango Madness and over 20 more flavors! These flavors make for endless opportunities to customize a candy station that’s unique to your event. Every station is manned by a skilled Amusement Masters candy technician – this allows clients and their guests to enjoy fresh spun and individual servings. Our manned cotton candy action stations can be placed indoors or outdoors for an event with the magic done right in front of your guests, creating a sweet interactive experience! For clients that want to offer guests a cotton candy take-away we also offer pre-packaged that is ‘grab n’ go.’ These pre-packaged treats are perfect party favors to handout to guest because they are so easy to store or put into a gift bag.

To book a Gigi’s Gourmet Cotton Candy station for your event just connect with us on our website or email: ksmink@amusementmasters.com.
