Circus Party

I have a friend from high school {Melissa} who contacted me last month to make a shirt for her son's first birthday party.  He was having a circus themed party and she wanted an elephant onesie.  She directed me to her Pinterest Board so I could see the color pallet.

Here is the shirt that I made for Grayson the sweet little birthday boy!

After the party she posted the pictures on facebook.  She did such an AMAZING job putting everything together I asked to share all the details on my blog.  Happily she said "Yes" I get to share this talented mommy's first circus party!

I think it's appropriate to start with the invitation.  It was designed by Melissa's best friend Tyler Wheeler.  You can find her FACEBOOK HERE.  I believe she will be taking orders for these and maybe some other designs.  Message her if you are interested!

Melissa and her husband Kevin cut the pennant flags out of a paper pack called Animal Crackers by Imaginisce.  She used a handy tool called a Sew Ribbon Cutter.  It is a paper cutter that allows you to make the perfect cuts to thread ribbon in paper.  I really want one! 

For favors she sent family and friends home with animal crackers and cracker jacks.  When guests came in she had them sign a Dumbo Golden Book.  Very cute guest book idea that he will have forever!

They made the cake banner themselves.  She also hung ribbon behind his highchair for a great pop of color.  The banner was also made by the party parents.  She used the Sew-Ribbon tool again and she cut the letters out with her Cricut on the Winnie the Pooh cartridge.

The cupcakes were made by Sassy Sweets Cakes and Treats from Troy, MO.  I love the blue icing.  The toppers were cut out from Melissa's Cricut and the elephant is a Martha Stewart punch.

I LOVE how his little ear pops out!

This is the party hat that Melissa and Kevin made for Grayson.  She used THIS template from Oh Happy Day.  I've already gone and printed it out to use for my son's party!

And because Grayson is too cute not to show are some pictures of the Birthday Boy.

 These were taken by the super talented photographer Stephanie Geisler.  

I hope you enjoyed the party...I know I did.  GREAT job Melissa and Kevin...and congrats on being parents for a whole year now!

I'm linking this party up to these gracious hostesses.
