Aqua + Orange Circus Birthday Party!

Under the Big Top Circus Party Photos + Inspiration!

I‘m pretty darn tickled to share this pretty party feature with y’all today! Not only is it the cutest circus party but it’s from my dear friend Rebecca of The Pink Orange & styling by Styled by Melissa! I’ve known Rebecca since I started this blog over three years ago + even got to see her when I was in upstate NY for a book signing. Her son is darrrl-ing (we made candy corn together, hehe). And if you’re not a “fan” of The Pink Orange over on Facebook, I suggest you become one STAT because this sweet company is one you’ll want to follow! Her fabulous stir sticks and coasters were even in the celebrity gift bags for this year’s OSCARS AWARDS. And check out all the adorable photos of the party with styling by Styled by Melissa!

And even more exciting, her ready-to-order line is now available at Judy Paulen Designs in Bloomingdales! Hello, fabulous! I love seeing her success! Click here to see her site: The Pink OrangeAnd see a few of my fave TPO products below the party photos…

Melissa and Rebecca collaborated on this darling party. Melissa styled decor, table settings, food stations, and banners while Rebecca created all the paper goods for the party. They’re definitely a dynamic duo! I love Melissa’s styling and the way the printable goodies are displayed. There is so much inspiration in this party!

HOW CUTE? Now, time for you to host a circus party! It might be hot outside but you can bring the summer carnival inside! Serve up typical carnival food like tasty hamburgers, fries, popcorn, cotton candy, and candy apples for an exciting and unexpected birthday treat. For some great activities create an area for painting, make your own clown favor boxes and have the little ones assemble. Use found bottles or recycled bottles for a bean bag tosses and ring tosses. These activities and carnival inspired food make this a hit for any little guy! This theme is great for any age just vary the level of the games and add tickets and prizes for even more fun. I love the way Rebecca and Melissa designed this party!

Circus Themed Wedding When the talented ARBOREAL Paper showed me this Circus Themed Wedding, I fell head over heels in love! Such a whimsical twist to a special night and yet romantic and gorgeous too. Maybe it's because I write about parties, but I get asked at least once a week "what do you think you'll do for YOUR wedding". Note: not even engaged yet people. My answer is typically "something … { read more }
