If there’s one place we all loved as a kid it’s the circus! Just this past weekend I was lucky enough to score tickets to the circus when they came to Raleigh and I can’t tell you enough how cool it was! From the animals to the trapeze, dancing, balancing and fire cannon acts, I was thoroughly impressed and on the edge of my seat! We took the kids and they were ecstatic over this three hour event!
With all of the excitement, it got me thinking – this would make a great theme for a young child’s birthday party! We always do wedding montages and inspiration blogs – but why not do a kids circus blog instead?! So here we are folks…step right up and celebrate your child’s next birthday and take a few ideas below along with you!
To set the scene for your kids circus party, choose a circus party invitation from our kids birthday party invitation collection! We offer a wide variety of invitations and have chosen our Carnival Invitation by Checkerboard below which features a circus program style printing on the invitation, as well as a circus hot air balloon envelope liner to top it all off. A little too mature for your taste? We also offer a few different kids cartoon circus party invitations which feature your favorite circus animals – lions, tigers and elephants. Decorate your party invitation envelopes with a self-inking circus animal stamp with a circus horse or balancing circus elephant.
Create a magical party scene filled with all the things we love about the circus. Decorate with jungle themed stuff animals, vibrant colors and maybe even have your own petting zoo or face painting station. Have a clown stop by for a magic show and send each kid home with their own balloon animal of their choice! Snacks for your party will be a snap, too! Serve up candy lollipops, popcorn, cotton candy, ice cream or rainbow ice cones. You can even crate your own circus animal cake pops instead of a traditional cake or cupcake. For party favors, send each child home with a magic toy, a box of Barnums Animal crackers, a deck of cards or a fun circus candy treat. You can even ask the kids to come dressed in their favorite vibrant attire – set up the birthday boy or girl as the ring leader of the whole circus!
