Set the Stage for the Show
You don’t need to rent an actual tent for the party – create the atmosphere of a three-ring show with less expensive details. For example, a couple yards of red and white striped fabric make a festive table covering that recalls the stripes of a circus tent. Bunches of red balloons are an absolute must, and guests can each take one home at the end of the party.
A pair of circus-inspired banners will give your party space some flair. To create the banner above, cut yellow cardstock to size with a pair of pinking shears. Then print out the word "circus" in a huge size of an old-time-y font (ours was Rosewood Std Regular). Once printed, use scissors to carefully cut out each letter and glue each to the center of a yellow card. Then affix cards to a length of grosgrain ribbon with double-stick tape and hang. The red garland was crafted from red labeling stickers and curling ribbon. Simply adhere a pair of stickers to one another over the ribbon; we spaced ours every three inches.
Devise an action-themed scavenger hunt complete with treasure at the end.
