One of my favorite party tips is to host the party during a non-meal time and only serve sweet treats and light snacks (3pm is my go-to time for my kids’ birthday parties).
I love this detailed Circus 1st Birthday Cake and matching Circus Smash Cake from Honeydip Bake Shop. Honeydip is in my local area (Edwardsville, Illinois – just outside St. Louis, MO). I’ve ordered cupcakes from Honeydip for parties before and they’re delicious!
I love planning and hosting birthday parties, but as a busy mom I don’t want to spend a ton of time decorating. I use the invitation theme throughout the party for decorations – it’s easy to pull together and looks cohesive.
A Circus Milestone Board my favorite piece of birthday decor for a 1st birthday party. I love documenting all of the milestones accomplished in the 1st year.
A Birthday Banner is easy to hang with coordinating solid color balloons for decoration.
