In reality, his birthday is on a Tuesday and we're only going to be inviting a handful of friends and family, none of which are children. I realize the First Birthday isn't really for the kid, it's for the parents, and more specifically, the mom, so I'm willingly scaling back the scope of the party. But it's still going to be themed, and the house is still going to be decorated. Unfortunately no one will be blowing fire, but I *might* end up wearing a tuxedo jacket with tails and a top hat.
I have an entire Pinterest board dedicated to party planning, and if all goes well, I'll be posting updates as I acquire all the necessary decor and decide on food and drinks, etc., but for the time being, I decided to share some of my favorite pics that are inspiring my vision for The Ultimate Circus Birthday Party.
I am definitely looking forward to getting this party planned. I'm pretty sure I can pull off an adult friendly carnival party that satisfies my flair for the dramatic and appeals to my kid at heart, too. Any tips or tricks you can offer me? I'm always looking for new ideas or better ways to do things. Have any of you thrown a big birthday party?
