The best ideas for hosting a modern and fun Circus birthday party

Circus is among my bestselling invitation designs. The modern and fun theme is perfect for celebrating a kid’s birthday

I’ve pulled together ideas for having a Circus or Carnival themed birthday party for party planning inspiration. 


Modern and fun Circus Birthday Invitations are among my most popular birthday themes. You can choose from professionally printed invitations or a digital file as the starting point for styling the party.


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.

Birthday Banner is easy to hang with coordinating solid color balloons for decoration.

Both the Milestone Board and Birthday Banner are available in my shop.


Don’t forget to thank guests for celebrating with you with Circus Favor Stickers and Circus Thank You Cards.

The stickers and cards are available in my shop – professionally printed and shipped to you (so you can easily cross this task off your to-do list).
