How to throw the ultimate circus party. Kids circus party theme

We all know when the circus rocks into town. I’m a massive fan of the kind that have lots of mind blowing acrobatics. The whole fanfare is quite brilliant though, from the typical big top to the clown costumes and fairground games. This post takes all that in and gives you a fully formed party in one place. Let’s set the scene. 🤡

Circus Party Decor

I love this circus banner kit from funkissd. It gives the party a much needed big top tent and all the fun of the circus animals in one out of the box solution. I’d definitely use this for a doorway of snack table.

You can check out all the goodies at Funkissd shop 🎪

These signs are great and really have all the vintage showground circus vibes. These would work especially well if you are having a party that is inside and out.

Time permitting, these would be pretty simple to make but you can buy them @blulu

I’m not sure there is an occasion where I couldn’t use these adorable vintage circus paper fans. Hang them from the ceiling, stick them to walls and doors. Who said your circus party had to be tacky.

I’m getting mine from ThePartiesThatPop

fun and easy kids paper circus party hats

As much as I love shopping my first love is craft. There was no way I could do a post about the circus without giving you a little project. No party is complete without a paper hat so have a look at this tutorial and make these super cute hats. 💙

Party Games

Keep your guests entertained with some classic circus games. Tin can alley, Plate spinning and the bean bag toss.

Circus Snacks

I think we can all agree that party food is the best. Here are some awesome circus snacks from my favourite blogs.


This was really fun to make, some absolute classics and some vintage tracks to make you the ringmaster of the ultimate circus party. 🎪🤡
