This vibrant CIRCUS + CARNIVAL THEMED FIRST BIRTHDAY PARTY was submitted by Dana Donley.

I have a special place in my heart for any party that has a circus or carnival theme and this one is no exception. Every detail is just adorable!

A few of the things that I like best about this lovely celebration are:
  • The clown head, elephant, ring master, and popcorn box cake pops
  • The birthday boy’s vintage style circus theme romper
  • The self-serve drink station with mason jars stacked on cake plates beside a beautiful glass beverage dispenser filled with lemons and lemonade
  • The chalkboard displaying a picture diagram of the birthday boy’s first year
  • and MORE!

Here’s what Dana said about planning the party- “We held my son’s first birthday party at our home. I did a lot of it on my own but also had my friend Heather Guthrie from At the Heels Wedding and Events do a lot. All table dressings came from Grand Rentals in Mooresville, NC. Beckham’s wonderful cake was done by my best friend Jamie Pursley. Cake pops were done also by a great friend Jaime Gatton. I also ordered gift bags from Oriental Express. Plates are from Target and banner. All the photo booth props from Party City. The great photos are by Gambol Photography and Taylored to You Photography. Megan and Pam did such an amazing job at capturing Beckham’s day.”

    Where can I find the tall vases for the table centerpieces?

    Adorable but so ridiculously over the top and lavash. It’s hard to enjoy such an overdone 1st birthday.
