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!

Little Man Mustache Baby Shower

My nephew and his wife are expecting their first child, a little boy! We are so excited for the arrival of the baby, but I was also super excited that I got to help by creating the decorations for the shower. 🙂Mustache Baby Shower - events to CELEBRATE!

The first thing I always do when planning a themed party is to look for printables. They help me determine the colors and theme. I found these FREE Little Man Mustache printables designed by Printabelle and offered for free by Catch My Party. Both sites have LOTS of free printable packages. All you need to do is download them to your own computer and either send them to a print shop to have them done (which I HIGHLY recommend) or use your color printer.

Little Man Mustache Baby Shower Decorations:

– I used Craft Jute and torn fabric strips to create a tassel garland that mimics a bow tie and necktie by the way I knotted the fabric onto the craft jute.

– After printing out the banner letters included in the printables set, I attached them to a length of Craft Jute with Clothespins.

– After making the custom fabric applique onesies (here is my tutorial), I added them along with torn fabric ties to a length of Craft Jute with more clothespins. Aren’t they darling?! (yes, I’m patting myself on the back)

Baby Shower Onsie Garland

– I purchased some mustache straw cut-outs from Hobby Lobby (similar to these Mustache Strawsand we served them in our lemonade.

Little Man Mustache Baby Shower Drinks - events to CELEBRATE!

– We served a variety of desserts from Kneaders Bakery (along with the spiral cut ham sandwiches on bakery buns, chips and veggies) and added the cute cupcake toppers that came in the printables kit to them. I just cut them out and used a hot glue gun to secure a toothpick to the back of each one.

-The amazing Michelle at Printabelle customizes any of her designs for just a couple of dollars, like these signs I used for the gift table and favor table. So, even if you find a free printable pack that you love and just need a certain element you don’t see included – be sure to contact the designer and see if they customize! Check out all of her designs, they’re pretty incredible – she’s one talented lady! The white frames are from Ikea and I accented them with torn fabric strips. Cute, no? Yes. 🙂

– For the gift and favor table I made a mustache garland made of a length of craft jute, Cardstock Mustache Cutouts (that have holes punched in them) and torn fabric strips (are you catching the theme yet?).

Little Man Mustache Baby Shower Favors:

Of course, they had to be chocolate mustache suckers. I used this Chocolate Mustache Lollipop Mold and some green and blue Wilton Candy Melts. Then we put some green and blue Frooties in jars along with a scoop and clear cellophane bags for people to help themselves to a treat.
