Exotic Animals, Clowns, and Acrobats! Bring the Circus to Your Next Theme Party!
April 26, 2012
We all know life’s a circus, but when you’re planning your next party, whether it’s for a child’s birthday party, a school fundraiser, or a neighborhood block party, why not use a circus theme and remind everyone what fun a circus can be? With all the circus party supplies that are available, you can create a circus to rival the greatest big top shows your town has ever seen!
Personalized circus invitations are the perfect way to get the word out about your circus party. Have these personalized circus invitations preprinted with all your party details, and whether you’re inviting a dozen people or a hundred, having your invites preprinted will save you time, leaving you more time to focus on the rest of the party planning details!
Ideally, you’ll want to set up your circus party at an outdoor space so that you have plenty of room to spread out and set up games, food stands, and activities. This is especially important if you’re expecting a big crowd. You should plan on having at least four or five games for the kids to enjoy. An inflatable ball toss game is a good choice, and the bean bag toss is a carnival favorite! You can also set up a station with a duck fishing game, which is always a big hit with the little ones. And you can use colorful game field cones to set up an obstacle course as well. Other fun activities that are popular at circus parties and carnivals are face painting, water balloon fights, piñatas, and pie-eating contests.
And what circus party would be complete without clowns? Have adults dress up in clown costumes and clown noses to entertain the guests. If anyone knows how to juggle, arm them with colorful bean bags and have them give juggling lessons. Kids and adults alike will love learning how to toss the bean bags! And of course you’ll need someone to make balloon animals for the littlest guests.
Aside from the games, the next best thing about the circus is the food! The smells of fresh popcorn, hot dogs, corn dogs, cotton candy, and funnel cakes bring back memories of first trips to the big top and nostalgia for childhood simplicity. Local rental shops should be able to hook you up with the equipment you need to make the popular carnival goodies. If you’re not sure how to operate them, a quick look through Yellow Pages or a call to a local bakery can help you find someone to do the cooking and serving. You’ll want to be sure to have plenty of water and soda on hand as well! Be sure to stock up on circus plates and paper goods to serve all the goodies on! Set up some picnic tables so people have a place to sit and snack while they are taking a break from all the circus fun and festivities you’ve planned.
Decorations for your big top bash are an important consideration when planning your event. Start with a colorful custom circus banner to advertise the event. This will help get the word out and attract more people to your fundraiser. And since these high-quality vinyl banners are built to withstand the elements, you can use them year after year, saving your organization money on supplies. Even if you’re just planning a circus party for your friends and family, a custom circus banner is a fun way to welcome guests and wish the guest of honor a happy birthday! Our multicolor decorating kit is a great choice for decorating for your circus party. With colorful garlands, foil swirls, star cutouts, and string decorations, you’ll have everything you need to decorate your party space. Just add some colorful balloons and you’ll have the perfect circus atmosphere for your party!
Whatever the reason for your circus party is, with the right decorations, activities, and non-creepy clowns, your event is sure to be a big hit with all your guests!
