One of the things that I love about this party is how everything plays on the theme perfectly. The font and patterns for her signs and decorations were spot-on circus. Kate used a projector to blow up circus pictures and then copy them onto poster board which she colored.
Things To Do:
Uncle turned clown:
Kate truly brought the circus to her backyard with all of the games she hand-crafted!
Balloon darts, bounce house, box of curiosities (had creepy things in colored jars) look if you dare!, pin the tail on the monkey:
Bright cupcakes with adorable toppers that matched the party hats:
And of course, we can’t forget the Birthday Girl! Kate designed her shirt in Photoshop and then printed it out on iron-on fabric. A cute tu-tu and a feathery birthday hat in just the right colors completed the outfit (of course the little lady didn’t want to wear the hand-crafted birthday hat!)
Amazing, right? I had hundreds of photos to choose from and these were just the tip of the iceberg. Serious planning and love went into this first birthday party and the outcome was fabulous.
Don’t worry friends, these photos are old and I have this little girl’s second birthday party to show you too! Be excited; it is the cutest party ever. My goal is to be invited to this year’s shindig to witness it for myself *wink* *wink*. Thanks for all your hard work and for letting me share it, Kate.
