Come One, Come All… it’s a Circus Party! Step right up for a colorful birthday party under the Big Top + a Giveaway too!
Planning a party for boy/girl twins can be a challenge. My twins definitely have different interest, but I’m not ready to throw two different parties for them just yet. I’m always looking for creative and fun ideas that appeal to both of their interest and a circus themed party covers lots of their favorites (he loves animals, she loves dress up) I loved this vintage circus printable package from Lauren Haddox Designs and think it’s great for kids birthday parties or even a carnival fundraiser! The colorful details combined with a little effort, a touch of creativity, and inexpensive ideas guarantee kids of all ages will have a blast!
Let kids nibble on circus- worth treats like caramel popcorn, cotton candy, circus cookies, candy apples, circus peanuts and cupcakes. There is no need for a Big Top Tent, take the party outdoors to a local park with lots of room for the kids to play. Include carnival games like Ring Toss, Knock Em’ Down Tin Can Toss, Duck Pond, Bean Bag Toss and Dart Throw. And to make it feel just like a real carnival give each kid tickets to play the games. I purchased several rolls of tickets from Oriental Trading and set aside 50 tickets per kid. I decided to use the leftover rolls as decorations on the dessert table, an inexpensive way to add creative details to your party.
You can’t have a circus party without lots of prizes! Make a prize table and display “grab-n-go” bags of trinkets. Oriental Trading has the best variety of carnival toys and games. They have a whole section dedicated to Carnival parties including candy, toys and games. I ordered the medium toy assortment with over 100 pieces for our prize table. Not only was the price right there was definitely something for everyone. One of the things I love about Oriental Trading is they are committed to offering the best value for your dollar with the lowest prices — guaranteed! If you are planning a circus or carnival themed party make sure you check out their prizes and games for your big event.
A circus just isn’t a circus without a little clowning around…don’t forget to create a photo booth to capture all the silly circus fun! I used red and white polka dot fabric to create a photo booth back drop and put out lots of silly dress up options including circus animal ears from Michael’s, party hats, and clown noses from Oriental Trading. The clown noses were a big hit and also included in each take home party favor box. Green and white polka dot gable boxes held plastic circus animals, birthday bubbles, clown noses, circus kisses, and custom wrapped chocolate candy bars.
Thanks for letting me share lots of inspiration and creative details for The Greatest Show on Earth, a Circus Party everyone will love!
