Everyone loves a circus and this classic theme party was sent in by Vanessa of Blog 5 to 9. Vanessa created this for her son’s 2nd birthday and I think she did a great job! Check out all the little details… Can you believe Vanessa and her husband built the amazing canopy above the sweets table? It makes such a statement and is a great focal point. All the names for the treats are adorable and fit the theme as well. Here’s what she has to say: “My husband and I designed and built a tabletop canopy structure to highlight the dessert table, which included all sorts of circus treats like cotton candy, popcorn, chocolate dipped pretzels, strongman marshmallow dumbbells, and sugar cookie whirly pops. The cake and cupcakes were purchased from a local grocery store and embellished with a homemade bunting and cupcake wrappers/flag toppers.”
Vanessa continues about the “real” food and photo props: “For lunch, we had hot dogs, corn on the cob, nachos & cheese, french fries and soft pretzels. I put out plastic nacho trays, paper hot dog trays, and paper cups to serve the food so that the kids could run around and play while they ate.
Everyone had fun dressing up in their clown noses and ringmaster mustaches. What’s not to love about a handlebar mustache, right?“
