Inspiration Board: Celebrate the Peanut Party Invitations

Friday, August 19th, 2011

There have been numerous requests for carnival themed parties and so many of them are for babies and children’s birthday parties alike. Especially during these gorgeous summer months and the desire to entertain with outdoor parties and activities. What a great way to save money too! The delightful stripes on these festive carnival themed baby shower invitations are just the ticket. I just love the playfulness of this celebration where traditional carnival food and sweet treats take the cake! This type of party would be perfect for a couple’s shower and either gender. Happy Friday!

Inspiration Board: Circus Party Invitations

Monday, August 15th, 2011

If you like circuses and carnivals, then we have invitations and party planning tips for you. This type of party invitation is so versatile as it is fitting for all ages, including a baby shower!

A festive, brightly colored canopy of red, white & yellow would bring this “under the big top” celebration to life, along with red curtain, helium balloons, peanuts and stationery to resemble a box of Barnum and Bailey animal crackers. In addition to creative circus invitations and big top canopy, you could offer traditional circus food at a homemade concession stand serving root beer floatscotton candy, corn dogs, hot dogs, popcorn, ice cream, snow cones and soft pretzels. Remember to fill your guest favor bags with gumballs, silly straws, bubbles, squirt toys, a swirl pop, a bag of popcorn and more.  I’m pretty sure ALL ages would have a blast at this kind of circus party!
