What can be a better way to celebrate the three-ring circus of parenthood than to host a high flying fun circus theme baby shower? So hurry, hurry! Come one, come all! Invite the dearest and the closest to the mum-to-be to the Greatest Circus Baby Shower in town!
Circus style baby showers are the perfect choice for a gender neutral bash. Whether the style is vintage or modern, a circus theme never fails to bring out the child in everyone. But, before you can welcome the little one in a fun way, you need these awesome ideas to put up a baby shower that will go down the family history as the ultimate get-together yet.
Step Right Up
Set the tone with a circus flyer invitation to serve as preview to what guests can expect from the “Greatest Show” of a baby shower. Download free circus fonts from the Internet to create charming invites to provide the details of the “Big Top” affair.
Welcome guests to the party area ceiling draped with vinyl table cloths that look like a circus tent. Continue the patch of colours as rolls of vinyl drape the walls. Add cardboard cut-outs of circus performers walking on tight rope and trapeze performers hanging overhead. Tie in bunches of multicoloured balloons to burst the room with more vibrant hues. Capture the true circus spirit with buntings that spell out the little one’s name. Strands of fairy lights interspersed with Japanese lanterns are perfect twinklers to create a whimsical carnival atmosphere.
Feast on Circus Foods
What’s a circus without hot dogs, French fries, peanuts, gum balls, and caramel corn? Set up a buffet table wrapped in red and white polka-dotted table cloths to serve these circus staple in multicolored platters. But, don’t miss out in offering nutritious flavours like vegetable kabobs with a dip and crunchy chicken strips with cornflakes. A painted metal pail with Styrofoam is great as a table centrepiece especially when it’s filled with sticks of giant, round lollipops splayed in all directions.
Let the dessert be the main attraction by layering a three-tier cake tower with mini cupcakes topped with different circus animals. For it to be truly eye-catching, use varying frosting colors to allow guests to feel they are getting something unique to nibble. For continuous snacks, offer the bevy of circus goers with bowls of popcorn with assorted toppings or have a real machine churning cotton candy to the delight of the kids. A fruity punch garnished with candies or cherries is an option if guests want to avoid cooled juice bottles and soda cans.
A playful and bright circus theme for a baby shower is guaranteed to turn your party into a galore of fun. There’s no need to hire a fortune teller to guess how much each one enjoys welcoming the arrival of the youngest and cutest ringmaster in town for the oohhs and aahhs are good enough signs.
