Step right up as we enter an evening filled with wonderment, silly photos, and happy party guests! When The Greatest Showman came out in theaters, it instantly sparked my desire to create a circus themed party that was filled with surprises and "big top" fun!
As you get ready to plan out any party, the invites are always the first step to setting the tone and getting your guests excited for what's to come. You can easily create a Circus Soiree ticket on the Shindigz site; they work perfectly as a party invitation!
Create a table setting that is fun and inviting. Bold and bright colors work great with a circus theme! A simple red polyester tablecloth, red polyester napkins and a navy petal table runner add pops of bold hues against any party's decor. Plastic champagne glasses, candlesticks and gold cutlery add a fancy twist to a circus themed dinner party.
I added gold iron-on vinyl stars to the table cover for some added fun! Bring your circus themed party to life with props such as a fake tiered cake from Confection Deception, circus animals holding tiny barbells and a small 1000 lb. barbell made out of styrofoam balls.
Guests will appreciate details big and small, like these mini elephant place card holders. Creating your own place card is easy with Shindigz! Add an image and a short message and set them out at each place setting.
Capture those great party moments with a larger-than-life Strong Man photo op! DIY photo props are also fun. Anyone can become a fire breather with a flame photo prop. I printed out different sized flames onto colored card stock and cut them out. I attached them together with double-stick tape and hot glued them onto a wooden dowel.
