McKinlee’s 3rd Vintage Circus Party :: Featured Party

Share To:

Who doesn’t love a circus themed party? This sweet take on a Big Top bash features our Vintage Circus Printable Collection and is full of simple but sweet details. We love the idea of little plush elephant favors for the little ones, and the pinwheel centerpieces are so much fun! Here’s what mom Laurie said about the birthday party:

As soon as I saw The TomKat Studio’s Vintage Circus printables, I just knew this had to be the theme for my daughter McKinlee’s 3rd birthday party. We rented a tent to put up in the backyard and decorated it with pink and yellow paper lanterns and penants. For the table centerpieces, I placed pink, yellow and white circus peanuts in tin pails with pinwheels. I found the perfect cake bunting to dress up a simple cake. Of course, it’s not a circus without popcorn and cotton candy too. We had a tight rope, duck pond, and a photo booth that guests of all ages enjoyed. It was only appropriate that McKinlee be dressed as the ringmaster of the circus. Our little guests received a stuffed elephant as a thank you for coming to her party, and everyone received a package of darling elephant sugar cookies that my mother-in-law decorated. It was a wonderful time!
