Circus is that one thing that never fails to enthral kids and even grown-ups. It is fun with lots of clowns around to pep you up; the excitement levels are high; there is apprehension of the trapeze performance; the animal shows and the fire performances also leave kids spellbound and curious; there is laughter, clapping, excitement – which is why circus remains a favourite topic even as we grow up. Throwing a birthday party with circus as the central theme can leave your guests highly satisfied and happy and one of the best ways to grow a year older.
This article throws some light on how to go about setting the theme so that people fondly remember your circus themed birthday party for years to come.
Send the invitation for the birthday party made on the lines of circus tickets. And remember to stick to the traditional circus colours – the red and white stripes. You could also use some circus digital designs to send invitees online.
When deciding the decor and the background of the party at the venue, make sure to add those extra elements that create the right carnival ambience. For example, a ticket booth counter could be setup at the entrance where guests could drop their tickets while coming inside. Or there could be clown cut-outs made to stand at the entrance to greet the guests. Alternately, you could actually hire people who could dress as clowns and jokers to not only greet visitors but also keep the little ones entertained through the party.
Stick to the red and white stripes through the entire decor. Add dash of other colours in their brightest forms here and there to induce more liveliness and zest in the atmosphere.
You could have small sized tents placed all over the place or at least in the corners, underneath which seating arrangements can be done for kids and adults.
Cover table tops and other areas of display with the red and white theme.
Birthdays are no fun without balloons and a circus theme cannot be complete without these balloons. So hang lots of them and spread out an equal number on the floors to keep the young ones busy. Prefer to stick to the colour theme or especially order clown shaped or circus themed balloons.
In the background, place few cut-outs –of animals, ring master, clowns, trapeze artists, gymnasts etc. Also the main backdrop of the party could be a cutout to represent a Circus sign.
For food and beverages, try getting clown nose shaped paper straws, the cake surely needs to be based on the circus, have a separate popcorn counter setup and serve coloured lollipops, marshmallows, crackerjacks, and jellybeans. Peanuts, cotton candies, gummies, clown and animal shaped cookies, paper boxes with handles, cupcakes and many other things that you can add to the list.
For gifts make a nice assortment of clown noses, hats, socks and ties along with the hat of the ringmaster, rainbow coloured wigs, squirting flowers and horns.
For games, look into ideas like face painting, tattoos, magic show, ring toss, balloon darts, ball toss games and more.
