Party Recap

Today I get to share a fabulous circus birthday party with you that I recently threw for my 2 year old son and 3 year old niece, plus a really great {giveaway}!! The party was a lot of fun to plan and the kids had an absolute blast! My son, Kyler, is still talking about the list of things he loved from his party, "popcorn, candy, popcorn..." I guess those treats are what stood out to him the most, even though we had all sorts of yummies to choose from. Take a look at the main dessert table! See all details at www.nbrynn.blogspot.com


Party Highlights

  • Desserts

    I'm all about letting the experts do their thing, but sometimes it's fun to try your hand at something new! My husband did most of the work in creating these adorable balloon and circus tent lollipops in red, yellow and aqua. We lined them up in an old suitcase and they made a great addition to the dessert table, plus they tasted amazing!

  • Party Favors

    We created a huge circus tent draping the front entrance out of a roll of red and white striped tablecloth (which we sadly did not get a picture of!). Each guest received a bag full of tickets to use at all the games inside. The bags would also serve as a place to collect all their winnings. The kids were greeted with rows of cotton candy and balloons!

  • Activities / Games

    Our games consisted of Knock 'Em Over, Bean Bag Toss, Fishing, Face Painting, Coloring Station and a Photo Booth. All of our photo booth props came from Props R Us and were definitely a crowd favorite!

  • What People Ate

    Cupcakes are a staple in all my dessert tables. They are fun to "dress up" with wraps and toppers and are easier for guests to grab and eat than a regular cake. We also had yummy custom cake pops by April's Cake Pops in the shapes of clowns and big top tents, whirly lollipops, circus peanuts, candy sticks and red hot popcorn. Yum, yum!

  • What People Drank

    In addition to all the sweets, popcorn and cotton candy, we had a snack and drink table with lemonade, fruit punch, water, hot dogs, pretzels and goldfish for the little ones. I tried to incorporate some pennant banners in all my game and food stations and also some "vintage" feeling item in each display, like an old suitcase, old milk crate and wooden bench.
