henri's circus party









I must admit I am not a fan of the real-life circus. But Cirque Du Soleil and circus-themed birthday parties are just dandy!

Dana went all-out for her son Henri's first birthday party. I'm personally in love with the favors (look at that amazing fabric and ticket-stub tags!). That cake- especially the lettering- really has me hooked. And all of the sweet vintage touches keep it from feeling like a 'factory-ready' party. I really adore everything, with the exception of the occasional tilted photo (a personal pet peeve of mine). Tip: Try cropping your photos differently or putting your 'scene' in a corner of the photo next time and see what a difference it will make!

I also heart the spelling of Henri's name. You can see all the love and hard work that was put into this lovely affair!

And- OH! For those with kids- this article is laugh-out-loud funny.

Love this party - so cute! Thank you for bringing us such fantastic ideas. I wanted to make sure Gaddie and Tood (not "Toad") gets all the praise she deserves. I have used her precious party banners, cupcake flags, etc. for various gatherings. Her goods are perfection!

Adorable party theme. We are planning a circus theme bridal shower so this is perfect timing. Do you know where I can find those ticket lables for the favors?

Hi,
Beautiful party!
Can you tell me what it is you used on the table? I can't tell.

Also who made your name banner and flag bunting

I'm so jealous of your primary colored chairs. No one has those here.
