Circus Valentine’s Day Party Details:
This is what Gretchen said about planning/styling the party- ”When it came time to start planning a Valentine’s Day party, I was bit stumped until I came across some circus-themed party supplies at my favorite party supply company. So I designed some printables with some great Valentine’s Day-inspired puns, threw in some carnival games and loads of treats to make a sweet and fun party for my kids and their little friends.
To keep things simple, we served store bought sweets mixed in with a few homemade treats. A beautiful ruffled white cake from Mixing It Up, red velvet cupcakes, homemade popcorn, donuts and circus peanuts were set around the table. I added a big lion to the top of the cake and twisted a tinsel pipe cleaner to resemble a hoop of fire. I also made smaller hoops for the cupcakes and topped those with a package of smaller wild animals.
My friend Tara of One Stylish Party sent over a gorgeous tissue paper garland in pinks, red and gold.
For party favors, I topped jars with wild animal figures from U.S. Toy. I glued the animals to the lids and then spray painted them in a soft pink. A bit of gold ribbon wrapped around the lid added some extra pizzazz.
The chalkboard was picked up at Jo-Ann’s. I spray painted the frame with gold glitter spray paint and used a chalkboard pen to write out “Please take one” in funky lettering.
To entertain the kids, I made a Mini Circus Photo Booth. The kids got to play with fun clown bow ties and noses. To make the photo booth, I picked up a vintage frame from a local antique shop and used leftover fabric and ribbon. I added a felt hearts and some felt roses. The kids loved it”!
