Best Kids Parties: Circus Carnival

We chose a simple circus carnival theme for Desmond's birthday, using a blue and red colour palette. We kept decorations simple by adding a few balloons and bunting above the table.

The cake was a three tier chocolate cake, covered in vanilla icing to show off the vintage train and circus animals. We've had this train in our family since i was a kid and it was fun to use again with my own child. Adding miniature circus animals added a bit of fun and connected the cake to the circus theme.

This was a winter birthday held in our small house with 15 kids. We played a few circus/carnival inspired games, such as pin the nose on the clown. It was a little overwhelming at times, but I still enjoy hosting our own party rather than outsourcing it to a more commercial space.

Thanks, Guilia! You can read more about the party at Audrey's blog.
