We've joined the Circus... so let's party!




Yes, putting together a mini Circus in our backyard was an insanely incredible feat for one!
 But so worth it, though sometimes I wonder if Pinterest is going to be the death of me. 
There are way too many great ideas which have taken my simplest of projects and spun them into hyper overdrive. 
... for example; applying contact paper to the wash tubs sounds easy enough but turned out to be a 8 store mad hunt for a product we all took for granted for decades, now it's almost impossible to find. I almost resorted to peeling it off my grandmothers kitchen shelves. 
Don't get me wrong I love Pinterest, but I was just as happy cutting a watermelon into triangle wedges , than I am spending hours creating a Sharkmelon.

So glad we found the Fred's crustache sandwich cutter, it was perfect for making mustache chocolate chip cookies.





Turns out the balloon pop was a huge hit and had kids lined up all afternoon, only to break away for the occasional snack and cake.

 I completely love that while everyone was singing happy birthday to "you", my birthday girl... I mean birthday unicorn hat girl, was singing happy birthday to "me"!
 and you can totally tell in the photos!







One of the highlights was having our wonder pup jump through a ring of fire! Little E practiced with her all week and to our sheer amazement she really did jump through the hoop on cue.







Clown noses and live goldfish went home in everyones goodie bags, I'm sure the local pet store's running on fish bowls this week.


I'm so obsessed with these Pottery Barn Kids birthday hats! Not only are they absolutely adorable and very well made, they stayed up on everyones head!

  1. Love your circus party. It looks like my carnival parties I have had, but even better. When my husband read this post, he thought that it sounded just like me and Pinterest...I even made the watermelon shark!
