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!”

Alex said this about the party- “My third little girl celebrated her first birthday in April and being around Easter we thought what better than to have a gorgeous pastel themed Easter party! It was a garden party with lots of prettiness and lots of fun!
A special appearance by the Easter Bunny himself was a highlight for the kids, as was the real white fluffy bunny which spent the afternoon hoping around.
A beautiful 2 tier Cake was the show stopper of the dessert table. Made by the talented Sweet Tiers it featured a beautiful Bunny figurine topper. All of the guests were amazed it was fondant and many thought it was a real porcelain figurine. Other treats included buttercream ruffled cupcakes in pastel shades of lemon, pink, mint and blue. And the most amazing and detailed Cookies by the super amazing cookie artist Kookie Krumbs by Kirstie. They were like tiny portraits, delicately detailed and definitely too good beautiful to eat!
The children’s setting featured rattan chairs which suited the garden feel to a tea.
Each guest received a keepsake hankie designed by Ham&Pea Paperie which featured the Winnie the Pooh quote ‘You are braver then you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think’.”

A few of the highlights to look for in this sweet fairy garden party are:
The desserts wrapped in paper and served in pots to resemble flowers
The layers of ribbon tied around the table
The lovely 2-tiered cake wrapped with a fondant bow
This is what Astir and Alessandra said about the party- “To celebrate the 1st birthday of Maria Antonia mama wanted something delicate and magical, with many flowers! Working with the colors pink, lilac, green and white, we create an enchanted world where fairies roam between flowers and candy! It was a delicate feast full of charm and lots of flowers!”
I love how the simplicity of this theme is taken up a level in this party by all of the unique items that were brought in from various Etsy shops. I think this Alphabet ABC theme would be so fun for a back to school party or a baby shower too! Some of the ideas and elements I like best in this party are:
The chalkboard printables
The small cake made to look like a toy block with fondant letters on the sides and striped paper straws along the edges
The mini composition book party favors
The alphabet cereal served in cupcake liners
The fork, knife and napkin packaged together in notebook paper favor bags
Tierney said this about the party- “Planning birthday parties is an art, an adventure and a memory in the making. As our youngest son turned 2, we decided to put a modern spin on an ABC Party. As the owner of Tints and Prints by Tierney, I challenge myself to create unique birthday parties for my boys. And when I need those unique, one-of-a-kind ideas, I shop on Etsy for just about everything. My parties start with the invitation design, of course, and everything falls into place from there. ABC decorations, books, crayon favors, notebook paper bags, chalkboard and chevron accents…need I say more? Adding these modern twists to a traditional ABC party sounded like fun and were a hit with the school of cousins we had over.
Aside from the birthday party invitation and coordinating party items, this Alphabet ABC Chalkboard Birthday Party features 5 other products from other Etsy shops. Personalized crayons, adorable fabric buntings, custom made fondant for the cake, party straws and paper bags, and the cutest Tooth Fairy pillow gift you’ve ever seen…all wonderful products. Each custom and personalized item made our party one for the books!”
