Circus Birthday Party: Part II

August 11th, 2010

Ok, isn’t she the cutest?! ­čÖé

For Part II of my Circus Birthday Party I wanted to share some of the details. As a backdrop for the party space, I created a flag banner which read “Taylor” and was accented by animals and the number “1”. Each piece was trimmed to a triangle shape and then strung together with coordinating ribbon.┬áThe rest of the decorations included cupcake toppers and small food signs.

At the “kids” table, there were party hats for them to wear and favor bags for each to take home. Initially I tried to make my own cone hats, but it turned out to be more challenging than expected… As a quick solution I purchased colored hats at my local party supply store, then attached paper circles with animals to the fronts. HUGE time saver! I┬ákept the favor bags simple by filling clear acetate bags with animal crackers and attaching a custom label with ribbon.

It was so much fun creating all of these pieces! I am looking forward to next year’s birthday party!

    Just precious! How did you make the paper details or did you have to order them? I would love to make something similar to the animal cracker bags for a baby shower I’m hosting next month, but don’t think I have a program to make the adorable tags you have on yours. Any info. you can share would be great. Thanks! Lisa
