My 13-year-old has discovered Pinterest.
For her birthday party this year she came up with the theme "Vintage Circus,"
after she had pinned several ideas on her board.
So I went to work to figure out exactly what Vintage Circus meant in terms of decor and party food!
I found great party supplies in the $1.00 bins at Michaels, like the plates and napkins you see here.
In addition to the items you see in the picture above, we served
warm pretzels, chicken wings, lemonade and watermelon.
I created this invitation in my Silhouette software.
My chalkboard art designed just for the party.
You can read my post here on how to create your own chalkboard art!
Aren't these the cutest little cupcakes ever! I found the liners at Michaels.
The popcorn top is actually marshmallows with the tops cut
and then sprayed with Wilton's yellow food spray.
I found the tickets at the dollar store
and the red and white chevron straws I ordered from Pick Your Plum.
Cotton Candy from the dollar store.
Circus peanuts, real peanuts and animal crackers (which I later stuck in the goodie bags).
More animal crackers in a jar (I love these things and find them very addicting!)
The striped table cloth is actually a large piece of fabric I had cut at Wal-Mart.
As you can see I had no trouble with this Vintage Circus theme (surprise surprise!)
I found these little Circus Tents in the Silhouette store.
They were so easy to put together and I had fun changing up the patterns too.
I made the banner with burlap, clothes pins and scrapbook paper.
I feel like we can use this banner for other parties as well
(it is not so super specific to the Vintage Circus).
Sid and her friends had great fun at the party and even more fun in our homemade photo booth!
