Circus Time

I’m having so much fun planning for my daughter’s 5th birthday party.  I actually started putting some definite things in place this weekend so I’m feeling pretty good about my timeline, so far.

The focal point of the décor is going to be the dessert/favor table.  The cake is already being planned out, so I sketched out my table set up around the cake.  Excuse my feeble attempt here…

I should get back into drawing again…clearly I need the practice…

Anywho…

I’m so excited that I was able to purchase some of the definites for this portion of the party.  I ordered the following items already:

vintage style concession supplies

Open topped popcorn boxes for the right and left sides of the table

Vintage Style Glass Jars

Red topped vintage style glass jars for gumballs and rock candy

Striped Paper Straws: Aqua

Striped paper straws for drinks

Red Polka Dot Paper Suitcases

2 Small red suitcases for some yummy cake pops and swirled lollies

You may notice in my drawing that the beverages were left off.  I wasn’t sure until this morning what to put the drinks in but I found this solution which will work perfectly….

Pretty Plastic Milk Bottles

The drinks with straws will go directly in front of the cake display!  {And these are plastic bottles which makes me VERY happy…since I don’t want to have to chase down kids with glass bottles}.

I’m working on the invitations too….just fine tuning some of the details and such but I can’t wait to show them to you when they are done!!
