CIRCUS THEMED BIRTHDAY PARTY

Hello Everyone!  Today’s post will be dedicated to all you party planners out there. I put this birthday party together for my daughter’s 3rd birthday two years ago. It was a Big Top Circus Carnival party. It took me several months to plan and make all the decorations. It was a lot of work but yet so much fun. We served hot dogs, snow cones, nachos, chips, lemonade and TONS of sweets. We also had Groovy the Clown who did face painting and fun games with awesome prizes.

It was one heck of a day! I was eight months pregnant with my second child. I was on my feet all day and hosting on an empty stomach, but towards the end of the day, my 3-year-old ran up to me, gave me a hug and said, ‘Mommy, I love you. Thank you for my party’. Those words were enough to make me full. Definitely worth going through all that trouble to celebrate the day my baby was born.

Come one, Come all

To the Greatest Show on Earth

Welcome to Chloe’s Circus Carnival of fun…

These are all the items I put together myself with the assistance of The Mr., who was definitely a big help throughout the party.

I made this guest book so guest can line up to have their Polaroid photo taken. They will then tape it on the guest book and write a little message for the birthday girl, but unfortunately, the Polaroid that I purchased wasn’t working. So I ended up using it as her photo album.
