Do you cherish the beloved story of a baby elephant with big ears? If so, you must see this sweet Dumbo Circus Birthday Bash submitted by Isabelle Craft of Bella C Parties out of Beaverton/OR/USA!

Its circus-inspired snacks, repurposed decor items and incredible cake are just some of the details that will have you rushing to re-create your own Dumbo/Circus themed event!

Dumbo Circus Birthday Bash

My favorite party ideas + elements from this fantastic birthday party include:

  • An incredible Dumbo + circus-inspired cake
  • Cupcakes topped with animal crackers + sugar canes
  • Dumbo picture book pennant banner
  • Striped table cover + curtains
  • Place settings comprised gold star plates set atop red & white striped plates
  • Circus themed snacks + food
  • And more!

This is what Isabelle said about planning/styling the party- “What a blast it was to plan this Dumbo themed circus party! The decor was full of enough whimsy to make us believe elephants really could fly! Every detail, from the three foot tall cake to the circus tent props, paid homage to America’s most beloved baby elephant. The key to pulling off this party was a lot of repurposing. The backdrop was made from a cardboard box, Ikea pillowcases, and an old Dumbo picture book…who knew all that could turn into a circus tent?! For food, we kept with classic circus treats, and then threw in some corn dogs and salted pretzels for a savory balance. Add some fun backyard circus games, and you have our recipe for a one-of-a-kind fantasmic Dumbo event! Enjoy!”
