Real Party: Baby, Welcome to the Circus!

As promised here are some photos from my most recent party “Baby, Welcome to the Circus.” I had a lot of fun planning this party with my friend Jesse. She helped take care of all the activity details and spent several hours helping me prepare all the printables for the party. I really think this theme would be a lot of fun for a Look and See or birthday, as well as for the baby shower.

I thought the phrase, “Baby, Welcome to the Circus” tied together the circus theme with a baby meeting our fun, crazy world perfectly. We were on a very restricted budget (the holidays are on the way!) so nearly everything had to be DIY or super inexpensive. We used several rolls of crepe paper streamers, printables and a couple of choice purchases.

The sweets table had a few different, fun options for our guests. (I felt a little bad about the parents of our littlest guests because they got sugared up!) The sweets table had funfetti cake pops, cupcakes, animal cookies, cotton candy balls and popcorn.
These adorable bags were purchased from Shop Sweet Lulu. 
They turned out to be SO cute and was at my house exactly 1 week after ordering them!

The Drink station was a small bar area with pink lemonade and water bottles. We served margaritas in the kitchen for those drinking adult beverages. The striped straws were purchase at Shop Sweet Lulu and Powell’s Books. We attached printable flags on the straws to give them an extra special touch.

Then there was the FOOD! Yum! 
A local chef—just starting out with catering on his own— provided a DELICIOUS spread of food. If you live in the Portland area and are interested in hiring this fabulous new caterer just e-mail me at and I’ll pass you along!

The guest of honor had fun playing all the games and enjoying the array of delish food.
