The Circus Party

May 26, 2011

So I promised I’d share a little of the boys’ circus party two weekends ago. The “little” I was going to share turned out to be quite a lot so bare with me….

I got to feed my love of paper crafts with this party! The invitation was a sweetie bag with some peanut M&M’s and a personalised ADMIT ONE ticket for each little guest.

The pictures on the invitations and the buntings come from a sticker sheet that you can get from Amazon here.

We forewent the cake in favour of baby cupcakes on a Cupcake stand – one side for 1-year old Connor and the other for 5-year old Dylan.

Kid-sized popcorn, candyfloss (cotton candy), lollipops and sweets! The Three-Ring circus favour boxes are from Amazon here.

The gel balls in the buckets were a hit and Dylan is still playing with them in the bath every night!

Baby hotdogs in bags for the kids, baby doughnuts and chicken wings and big cupcakes for Moms and Dads…

We played a little bit of dress-up for some circus photos. Apart from the fun and some great memories I am using these pictures for personalised “thank-you” cards that look like a photobooth strip – they’re not done yet but I’ll share them once I’ve finished. The subway art birthday poster came from the girls at Eighteen25 – it’s a free printable so head on over for a girl’s and a boy’s version!

Party Packs to take home!  Inside the favour boxes were plenty of goodies for kids including neon monkey bracelets  and playdough, circus masks and a chocolate clown with the tag below. Moms and Dads got cupcakes to take home too. Get the Big Top Cupcake boxes from Amazon here and the Big Top Favour Boxes here.

I think I enjoyed the party as much or more than the boys – it is so satisfying when a guest says “wow!”  Definitely a day to remember!

    I wish I was a kid that was invited to your party. I must say you are so creative. I am planning to do a circus/carnival theme party for my triplets 1st birthday next month & would you kindly send me info on the invites as well. I keep getting ideas after ideas & seems a bit overwelming but great if I had the time. Wish me luck!
