Carnival or Circus Themed Party

Carnival or Circus Themed Party

My family and I went to the Strawberry Festival this year over Memorial Day weekend and I took these pictures to inspire one of my best friends because I knew she was planning a carnival/circus theme for her daughter’s first birthday. I took pictures of anything that inspired me including the colorful lighted signs, the giant inflatable prizes, and the abundant walls of furry creatures.

After a little research, I found that one of my favorite blogs, Hostess With The Mostess, had highlighted several parties with a Circus or Carnival inspired theme.  Here are some of them (Jen, I hope this gets your already creative juices flowing). The common elements are bright colors, animals, stripes, and lots of sweet treats!

    Thanks Dinah…great pictures, I picked out a few of those same pictures. My creative juices are flowing and I love the drapery around the cake and the candy. So much to do. Thanks again for the great ideas.
