I’m a sucker for a great party theme and the grandest of all is the circus party. Young or old, big or small, everyone adores the circus and there isn’t a more fun way to celebrate than with colourful, entertaining and fun clowns, dancing elephants and juggling galore! On centre stage is our proud lion tamer, entertaining the kids on stage right is Bopo the Clown and to stage left is Hercules the Strong Man.
Creating a circus themed party is loads of fun. It’s also a relatively easy theme to work with because if you can find colour and excitement in your decorations, you’re half-way there already.
Pink Frosting has just taken delivery of a new range of circus themed party supplies which are to die for! To celebrate, we thought it was time to revisit our best circus party ideas to help you bring this fun party together.
Decorating for a circus party is fun and easy. Lanterns in bright colours, tulle, plenty of helium filled bright balloons and scene setters creating a “big top” are just the ticket.
Provide a red nose (perfect at the moment with Red Nose Day on the horizon – you’re helping charity too!) and funny clown wig for all your guests, serve popcorn in genuine popcorn boxes, candy apples, bright swirly lollypops and home-made icecream cones dipped in chocolate.
Games for a circus party are easy too. How about learning how to juggle? Pin the red nose on the clown? Strong man competition? Old-fashioned apple bobbing? Face painting is always a hit – and why not let the kids do it themselves to create fun clown faces?
Favours and game prizes can be presented in these cute little clown themed pom-pom hat favour boxes.
