Circus Themed Birthday
Our little Amelia just turned a year old last week and I decided to do a circus theme. My inspiration for the colours came from this Lion Coffee which was given to us by my sister in law.
I made a circus banner out of cardstock…
and some tissue paper balls (for which I have found a quick Youtube tutorial here for you). I only used 5 sheets of tissue and then cut it in half once I had folded it all up. I also just used fishing line to tie them up so they looked like they were floating.
I got some old school popcorn and hot dog containers from the dollar store.
Along with some plastic animals to decorate the cupcakes and cake with.
I used some scrapbook paper to create the cones for the home made sweet potatoe and regular fries.

As this was such a big event I decided to dedicate three pages to it instead of the usual two. I printed my photos at home onto matte paper and they don’t seem as nice. Maybe I need to try a new brand.
I used the decor from the party for accents in the layouts. I also tried to tone down the colour a bit with a little black scattered throughout. I even took my new chicken wire stamp and applied it to the background in some areas and did a little doodling.
Boy, lots of pics today. Have a great week!!!!
