Circus Baby Shower Ideas

We had a lot of fun planning this Circus baby shower for my niece! I’m going to share all of our Circus baby shower ideas so you can put together your own in no time! I have to give my sister and niece all of the credit, they pulled this off, I only helped a little with the decorations and games. The circus baby shower invitations and prints were done by my talented niece and my sister did all of the circus baby shower food (which was delicious!) and put up the decorations because I was out of town until just before the shower. But it all came together so perfectly and we had such a great time celebrating with family and friends!

Using the 100′ roll of red and white stripe table cover from Oriental Trading was our best party trick. It went really far and did A LOT to decorate and theme the space. Without it, the design just wouldn’t have been the same! We turned it into Circus tent curtains and a swag on the food table. It was accented it with teal and red tissue fans and teal tissue garland.  The 36″ balloons were purchased at a party store and a tassel was added to each one.

The same look was repeated on the drinks table.

My talented graphic designer niece created these cute prints that were used throughout the party. They were a very significant touch and added SO much to the theme of the party! Are you loving all of these baby shower ideas?! So cute, right?! If you want to contact her about these prints or any other design work (you should see the cute invitations!) just email her at alixkersavage@gmail.com.

In one part of her kitchen my sister served pulled pork sliders, salad and chips. It was delicious! Then there were the treats! Oh, the treats! My darling 10 year old niece made lemonade cupcakes that were divine! They looked so adorable in the red stripe baking cups! She needs to be on the next Food Network Kids Baking Championship! In addition to the cupcakes we served churros (from Costco), honey roasted peanuts, popcorn and cotton candy (of course!). The food display stands came from Oriental Trading as well and were easy to assemble. They were meant for other food items but it was really easy to adapt them to what we were serving. 

Circus Baby Shower Games

Every baby shower needs some way for guests to interact. Baby Shower Bingo is my all time favorite baby shower game. Watching the guest of honor open gift after gift can eat a large portion of your time together and frankly, it gets pretty boring. So, this is a fun way to get guests involved and having fun during it! My niece made bingo cards but you can also use my free printable baby shower bingo cards

We also played the Poopy Diaper baby shower game. I detail it all here and even have FREE PRINTABLES for you to use! Hooray for free printables!

Baby Shower Game: Poopy Diaper Game

Looking for a fun baby shower game? Baby shower games don’t have to be super lame. In fact, they can be a fun element of the baby shower that gets guests interacting and amp up the party atmosphere. Even if you are in the camp of hating all shower games, you have to understand that some type of activity is necessary especially if you are bringing guests together from different groups of your life (work, friends, family, neighborhood, etc.). If all you plan is eating (and don’t get me wrong, the food is VERY important!), there will be more than a few guests that suddenly have an excuse to leave because they are bored.

I have over 50 nieces and nephews and almost a dozen great nieces and nephews so I’ve attended and hosted my share of showers. There have been lots of lame games. I don’t think this poopy diaper baby shower game is one of them. We did it last weekend at my nieces shower and everyone had a great time!

Vintage Airplane Shower Printables & Games

The fun continues with post #2 about this cute Vintage Airplane baby shower I did for my niece. Today I’ll be sharing the FREE printables, favors and fun activities we did at the shower. 

I followed my Rules for Hosting a Shower on a Budget and prepared 3 activities for the guests.

Vintage Airplane Shower Activities:

The first was Advice Cards. To help it fit with the Vintage Airplane theme, I ordered these Vintage Postcards on Amazon and asked guests to fill in advice to the new mom on them and slip them into the cute little suitcase. This was something that the guests could do while they mingled and it was helpful to the mom!

Chinese Chicken Salad

This Chinese Chicken Salad is always a BIG hit at any event I bring it to. It’s the perfect salad for a Ladies Lunch, Bridal Shower or Baby Shower. In fact, the first time I made this for a baby shower, me and two of the others hosting the shower each brought 2 salads to make a little salad buffet and this was the first salad to be gone because people LOVED IT!Chinese Chicken Salad - eventstocelebrate.net

Baby Shower Bingo

Baby Shower Bingo is my favorite shower game out of all of them. Why? It gives guests something fun to do while the gifts are opened! The gift opening can often take a long time, depending on the number of guests. Let’s be honest, sitting there ooh-ing and aah-ing at outfit after outfit can be a tad bit boring. Raise your hand if you’re with me! This way, guests get to play a game and compete for fabulous prizes (like this cute Pedicure Set or this Sugar Scrub)

Win, win!!

Baby Shower Bingo - Free Printable Cards in Black and White so you can print them on any color paper to fit your theme!

You’ll notice that I did this in black and white. That is so you can print it on whatever color of paper/cardstock you need to fit the colors you’ve chosen for your theme. If you’re following along with my post about HOW TO HOST A SHOWER ON A BUDGET – these fit perfectly with my rule of 3 games, and using Free Printables! Go you!  You’re going to rock this shower hosting gig!

Diaper Cake Tutorial

Diaper Cake Tutorial - Events To Celebrate

I still remember the first time I made a diaper cake for a baby shower. It was before the days of Pinterest and YouTube tutorials. It was kind of a disaster. I had seen one in a photo and figured it couldn’t be that difficult, but it took me a little while to figure out how to get everything to stay together. Let me give you a few tips that will help you put one together.
