Big Top Birthday Party Circus Theme


Big Top Birthday Party Circus Theme
A popular birthday party theme is a birthday party worthy of the big top – a circus big top, that is! A circus theme has the possibilities to give thrills and will excite your little one and guests alike. If you want to make the event worthy of its title, the trick is to keep the action lively and moving throughout the event so that little minds with short attention spans do not have an opportunity to move on to mischievous pursuits like running around the house where they’re not supposed to or pulling the dogs tail for entertainment.

The first thing that a circus puts up is a big top tent. This may run a little high on the decoration funds, but this can be done without booking a huge back yard tent. It’s possible to create a big top effect in your living room with streamers. Helium can be rented quite inexpensively and you can create the illusion of a tent top by filling the ceiling with brightly colored balloons and streamers to match. There are Circus Party Balloon Garland Kits you can get to help guide the process. You can make the entrance of the party room look like tent flaps. Push all of the furniture along the wall and allow the little ones to seat themselves on the floor along the “center ring” where all the action will be.

You can decorate windows and doors with Red & White Circus Party Awnings as an added detail.

Now, you really should make an effort to have some sort of entertainment professional booked for the kiddos with an event of this nature. It can be a clown act, magic show, or simply someone making balloon animals for the birthday boy or girl and his or her guests. Face painting and a bounce house are other great activities to include on your list of events and shows and a lot of fun for the little ones. Be sure to include several great games (ring toss, pin the nose on the clown, and corn hole are great games worthy of a circus theme) and a craft activity or two in the running so that the little ones do not sit idly very long. It is always a good idea to keep them occupied and having fun.

The big top provides some excellent dining delights that carry over quite well into the birthday party theme. Hot dogs are an excellent lunch for a room filled with excited little ones. Candied apples, popcorn, cotton candy, and peanuts are also a great and fun addition to birthday party food that work well with the circus theme. Barnum’s Animal Crackers are packaged perfectly for this event or frosted circus animal cookies would also make great snacks.

Goody bags can be a lot of fun for this particular event by using popcorn bags for the bag and filling them with circus animals, bubbles, glow bracelets, circus themed stickers, and other nifty little items. Oriental trading and local party stores might prove to be an excellent resource for goody bag gifts. Don’t forget to include a photo frame with a photo of each child with his or her face painted or balloon animal as a keepsake.

The main thing to remember when planning a party worthy of the big top moniker is that the most important thing is that everyone has a good time. Don’t sweat the small details so much that you aren’t able to enjoy the event. Other great ideas to make this an even bigger event include things such as renting a moon walk for kids to jump and play in, renting a cotton candy maker, and having a real popcorn popper rather than relying on microwave popcorn. There’s something about the smell that just makes it feel like a circus.

Another thing you need to do when planning a big top or circus themed birthday party is plan for contingencies, such as rain if the party was to be held outside. The show must go on whether it is storming or whether the sun is shining brightly so be sure to have a back up plans in case things go awry.
