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.

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!

Trunk Or Treat Monster

Each year we attend a Trunk or Treat in my in-laws neighborhood. It is amazing to see the trunk or treat decorating ideas people come up with! My favorite part about a Trunk or Treat is that it brings everyone outside and it feels like a PARTY! I wanted to create an easy trunk or treat idea to share and came up with my Trunk or Treat Monster! Isn’t it cute?! It took about an hour to assemble the decorations and about 30 minutes to put it all up. Not bad for a totally awesome trunk! My neighbors thought I was a little odd staging this in my yard in September, but that’s what bloggers do. And, now it is all ready to put up on Halloween!

**Now, a word on adhesive. Use painters tape or masking tape if you are adhering something to the paint of your car. 

***My Trunk Or Treat round up has over a dozen Halloween trunk decorating ideas and I’ll add this over there to. Be sure to check it out!

Fidget Spinner Pinata DIY

Has your house caught the FIDGET SPINNER bug yet? They are everywhere and I have to admit, they are pretty fun to play with! My nephew knows how to make a fidget spinner and made some for himself and his siblings. I think building your own fidget toy is a great way to encourage mechanical minds! This fidget spinner pinata would be perfect at a tween birthday party! It is made of common products and only took about 1 hour to make (it may have gone faster if I weren’t stopping to take pictures) and about $5 in supplies (including the oatmeal in the can). If you’ve ever looked at buying a pinata for a party, they can be really pricey! Add to that the cost of the candy and it can break your budget!

If you’re hosting a fidget spinner birthday party, giving a fidget spinner as a party favor is a no brainer! But I really think these glow party supplies work so great with the fidget spinner party theme!
