In a house filled (to the brim) with fancy toys that light up, talk, play music, and make you breakfast… my little Essa’s favorite toy in the whole world is his old school Jack in the Box. His second favorite thing to play with is balloons…big, small, inflated, deflated, filled with water, he looooooves balloons. When it came time to plan his 2nd birthday party, a Big Top Circus theme was the first thing that came to mind!
I had so much fun planning this party but it was definitely A LOT of work. My husband and I actually designed and built the tabletop canopy structure out of like wood..and nails…and paint… it was really cool! Neither of us really have any experience in this sort of thing, but it was a really fun weekend project. We seriously didn’t think it would come out half way decent but when it was done, we were thrilled with the results!!
For lunch, we had circus themed food including hot dogs, corn on the cob, nachos & cheese, french fries and soft pretzels. I put out plastic nacho trays, paper hot dog trays, and paper cups to serve the food so that the kids could run around and play while they ate.
(yes, I see the grammar mistake in my sign and am very disappointed. I didn’t notice it until I started editing my pictures… grrr)
Everyone had fun sporting their clown noses and Ringmaster mustaches. What’s not to love about a handlebar mustache, right?
We had an amazing time with our favorite friends and family! Thank you all for celebrating with us.
