For Dashell's special day, I designed an invitation that had a big top flair but absolutely focused on the excitement of the circus train rolling into town!
One of the best things about parties is the magic they bring when they help to ignite the imaginations of your guests.
Just in front of the big top entryway, I layered bunches of huge 36" balloons (which Dashell just couldn't resist grabbing and running around with!) And then to give everyone a hint that a little more circus magic might be found inside the party, I placed a large 6' giraffe popping out of the bushes!
Our entire yard was draped with over 600 feet of custom fabric bunting to help transport everyone to the circus!
Oh, the dessert table! How I love, love, love to watch children's faces light up when they see it!! For this party knew exactly what I wanted to do... a Circus Wagon! How much fun, right?!
Treats that wonderful need to be displayed in a special way, so I purchased a few circus wagons from Michaels, painted them to match the party decor and voila! We had our very own circus parade winding through the dessert table!
And honestly, it just wouldn't be a circus party without a little carmel corn and a few cupcakes, right?! So to finish off our sweets buffet, I designed some coordinating popcorn cones as well as some cupcake toppers and wrappers.
Have you ever seen children spy a train table? It is like watching a moth being drawn to a flame!
