Vintage Circus Birthday Party

red aqua vintage circus birthday party

How much fun is a Vintage Circus Birthday Party? I think it’s one of the neatest party themes because it fits for gender neutral parties as well as a variety of age ranges! We have showcased a lot of circus parties, but I couldn’t help but share this darling one designed by I Do Invitations by Michelle. I love the paper signs and cupcake toppers! Something else I LOVE? Serving strawberries! Every party should have some sugar, but I think more and more parents are finding clever ways to sneak in fruits + veggies as well. I also adore the animal cracker bear that Michelle purchased and decorated with a new label + ribbon!

The best part of this Vintage Circus Birthday Party?! Everything was created + designed on a budget…read below for all the budget-friendly details….

Vintage Circus Birthday Party – budget friendly party details….

“I immediately fell in love with this vintage-like color scheme and wanted something that could work for a boy or girl party (or both!) I also wanted to create something a little different and style a party that most everyone can easily do within a budget. I know the circus theme is always popular this time of year but I wanted to style something that was affordable and also something most everyone can re-create.”

Michelle designed the Invite, Water Bottle Labels, Banner, Cupcake Toppers, Labels, Favor Tags, etc. + you can throw your OWN Vintage Circus Birthday Party with her printables – available in her etsy shop!

She found MANY of the party details right at her local Target including the popcorn buckets and cotton candy in the dollar section – a super fab find! She also found the animal cracker bear at Target too!

One of our’s own sponsors was one of Michelle’s prime sources for many of these darling party supplies! The plates, napkins, straws, cups, balloons, and cupcake liners came from Shop Sweet Lulu!

Michelle made the cupcakes herself and purchased the cute decorated sugar cookies and strawberries from her local grocery store and simply added a craft stick and some ribbon to the cotton candy!

    I love the cotton candy on a stick. Too cute and much less messier than the traditional machine.
