As a kid, this was a very special time for me, so I wanted to create a dessert table that is fun and playful and captures the nostalgic look and feel of that era.
I bought a really cute printable birthday package from Dimple Prints via Etsy that I used throughout the party. For the invitation, I filled ziploc bags with coloured gumballs and placed the invitation details on the wrapping. Amanda from Bluebird Cakes designed this incredible circus cake and the elephant cookies to match the printables. The details on the cake and the cookies were unbelievable. I also served: popcorn, candy apples, oreo pops, candy and white chocolate covered strawberries. I found the inflatable Bozo (The World's most famous clown from 1960s) and the matching money banks in Winners. They matched my colours so well. We played different carnival games and I think everyone had a great time, especially me!
Here are some photos from the party.
