Big Top Birthday Party *Pic Heavy*

10 Dec

It’s no secret that we LOVE all things weddings here at Two Belles. But that doesn’t mean we don’t love a good birthday party! When we started planning this party with this master DIY Mom, we knew right away that it was going to be one for the books! She had SO many great ideas (lots of inspired lovelies!) and we were able to help her execute them fabulously! So, STEP RIGHT UP…..and enjoy all of the goodness that was Eli’s 1st Birthday Party Circus Extravaganza!

This yard sign welcomed guests to the party and immediately gave you that “carnival” feel

“1” on the door DIY’d by the Birthday Boy’s Mom!

It’s not a circus without a Big Top, right? Well, we transformed the dining room into our very own “big top”! It was a huge success and set the party off to a great start!

The yellow balloons really popped (not literally) against the red and white big top!

The candy buffet (more on that up next..) and the gift table under the big top. How fabulous does this look?

We’re sort of obsessed with the way this came out! Wouldn’t you be?

Ok, we’ve shown enough teaser shots of the SWEET candy buffet. So let’s talk about it!

Pixie Stix, cotton candy, and Cracker Jacks~ OH MY! This candy buffet was FULL of circus sweets! Gumball machines were used as decorations and as a container on the candy buffet. Just looking at the set up will take you immediately to the circus!

On the candy buffet you can see~ cracker jacks, M&Ms, skittles, suckers, Mike & Ike’s, gummy bears, mints, laffy taffy, pixie stix and more! Multi colored wrapped boxes were used to add height variation to the set up.

Cotton candy hung from the walls. Birthday hats got everyone in the birthday spirit!

This circus train decor served as decoration during the party and a toy for the birthday boy after! Plus it gives this vintage circus vibe that we just LOVE!

What’s a circus/carnival without GAMES? At each game station, you received “tickets.” At the end of the party, each guests turned their tickets in to redeem a goody bag prize! This was an additional prize besides the popcorn decorated  boxes full of misc items! This Mom really wanted her childs guests to leave with several presents! What lucky guests!

Tickets were given out to each guest as they played the carnival games!

Ring Toss!

On the other side of the house, under the carport, the adults were able to enjoy the sights of the party and the smell of warm popcorn! If the games weren’t enough entertainment, the kids were surely to be entertained in the bouncy house!

Clown themed spacewalk!

Peanuts were just one of the yummy snacks to enjoy at the party! You could also indulge in Chili Cheese Nachos (WE DID and they were SO worth every calorie!), Corn dogs, Pickles, Popcorn and of course~ Birthday cake!

These buckets were painted by Two Belles! We wanted to add a little something to the plain peanut pails!

Popcorn machine was poppin’ throughout the whole party!

Yummy, buttery, goodness

When you’re throwing a party, it’s all about the details right? Well, that’s our specialty! We wanted to create a “Faux-To” Booth for adults and kids alike to enjoy and have a memento to remember the party by. Eli’s Mom also collected “props” for them to use!

100_4420

Props for the Faux-To Booth included clown wigs, noses, glasses, oversized bowties, and more!

100_4438

These guests had a blast with the props and in the Faux-To (photo) booth!

100_4456

The “RingMaster” got in on the action too! Couldn’t you just die for his little outfit?

100_4422

If the Faux-To Booth wasn’t your style, feel free to “Picture” yourself here!

100_4440

Face Painting was also available! There was SO much to do! It was a blast!

100_4410

Last but not least, the birthday boys throne! Mom made the high chair decor. Two Belles made the birthday boys hat!

100_4459

The birthday boy had an outfit change! Customized onesie with blue suspenders, red necktie, and yellow “1”. He wore red pants and his birthday hat.

His “Just for Me” cake!

Last but not least, the clown pinata holding 10 MORE pounds of candy!

Thanks for letting us be a part of your 1st birthday party, Eli. Mandy, I hope everything was just the way you wanted it to be. Thanks for our gift basket!

We hope you enjoyed this Circus party as much as we did!

XOXO,

The Two Belles Team
