Interestingly, I'm working on 2 circus themed first birthday parties that are a week apart from each other! Both clients wanted to go with a gender neutral theme that would be fun for guests of all ages. Think cotton candy, funnel cakes, corn dogs, balloon twisters, and carnival games. Check out my Circus Birthday Party Pinterest board for more ideas and inspiration.
I had the hardest time coming up with a backdrop for the cake table at Camden's Angry Birds birthday party. My idea of using Post-It Notes to create a pixelated backdrop sounded brilliant, but it turned out to be a flop (which was why I had so many Post-It Notes for the neon heart backdrop). Finally, I came up with this 3-D backdrop using the polka dotted bags that were used to hold the party favors. As promised, here's the super simple tutorial to recreate this favor bag backdrop : )
