In my church I am over the youth group (girls ages 12-18). This group is called the “Young Women” organization. I absolutely love it. It’s so rewarding and the girls are just the cutest!
A friend and I came up with this fun birthday gift idea to give to the girls in the YW on their birthday. As leaders we are always trying to find inexpensive yet cute gift ideas…I think we nailed it with this one!
The gumball tubes can be purchased from theKara’s Party Shopfor only $1.13 each HERE (they come in packs of 6). I also sell inexpensive gumballs/bubble gum in assorted colors HERE (including gold- the value color for Virtue)!
This amazing CIRCUS THEMED FIRST BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Astir and Alessandra of Pra Vocë Festas Especiais.
I have a soft spot for circus parties and this one is fantastic and is filled with so many great ideas! some of the highlights to look for are:
The favor cones adorned with paper mustaches and filled with peanuts
The colorful popcorn ball lollipops
The strongman barbells made with paper straws and marshmallows
Astir and Alessandra said this about the party- “How about making JG’s debut birthday party in the world of cheerful and colorful Circus Clowns, magicians, jugglers and all the joy of the circus? These were all part of this first birthday, along with delicacies that are reminiscent of this charming universe – cotton candy, popcorn, candy apples, peanuts, and more!”
