Enter the Magical World of the CIRCUS

Friday, May 11, 2012




Come one- Come all to Andie's Circus Birthday Party! Enter the Magical World of the Circus! Step right up and see Ella the elephant and her sidekick Squeak, the mouse.... Now you can create your own Circus or Carnival party with our printable party pack available here. We had lots of treats, sweets and prizes for the kids to enjoy.  


For the decoration I wanted to make a dramatic focal point so I made a canopy looking like a tent that you would walk through in a circus or carnival. I created the tent by draping red and white striped fabric, then adding light blue and red tulle underneath to add a little color, texture and volume to the canopy. We then placed our Circus sign at top






Popcorn was served in red and white stripe bags.... come get while it's HOT! It was a must for a Circus/ Carnival.



We package mini bags of peanuts in aqua blue fabric bags with our fun peanut tag for Ella the elephant- so you could "feed Ella" with or snack on them yourself.


Peanuts for Ella the Elephant and her side kick Squeak "the mouse"



Ella was my inspiration for the whole circus theme birthday I created! I loved the mini mouse on her back.... I just had to have her!


Here is our Star of the "Andie's" Circus Birthday party! 



Our scurrying "circus mice" were scattered all around our Circus dessert bar seeking out something sweet to eat.




Other fun treats were oversized animal cookies with drizzled frosting and sprinkles, cupcakes done simply with white cream cheese frosting and topped with colorful sprinkles.


We also wanted to acknowledge the Ring Master (Andie the birthday boy) so we created these Ring Master face mustache sucker holders. We placed a chocolate mustache in the center for the favor.... "The sensational CIRCUS Spectacular presents Andie's Birthday!"



Our cupcakes were decorated simply with a large star tip, topped with colorful sprinkles and our cupcake toppers. 








Over sized animal cookies. (we also included hearts and stars)


And normal animal cookies!



Circus banner available in our printable party pack


The magnificent never ending gobstopper sucker with our "the End" thanks for coming tag.


For drinks we had brightly colored red and blue jones soda pops to add a splash of color.




Mini goldfish for each participant! 


In our printable party pack  Circus hats are included. Each one of our guest received one. We embellished them with a red fuzzy balls on top to.


2 different designs are included! Enter the Magical world of Andie's Circus & Andie's Circus turns 3.

Vintage Superhero Birthday Party Collection.... Calling all Superheroes!

Monday, May 7, 2012


The Advengers superhero movie was released on Friday so I thought I would share my Vintage Superhero collection I created a couple months ago. Our Superhero collection has a Vintage comic feel, while still being retro and modern, inspired my the very talented Roy Lichtenstein. His style was the perfect balance between Vintage, Modern and Retro, so we wanted to keep thing simple with thick black & white boarders and polka dots. All of the printables you see here are available in Wants and Wishes Etsy shop

For the backdrop I wanted it to look like an explosion.... a "sweets explosion" was happening.  

For the backdrop we use a large polka dot print in orange to make it a little bit more fun instead of using the traditional red, blue and yellow color schemes. We placed our large conversation bubble: "Calling all Superheroes: there's been a SWEETS EXPLOSION.... Help us eat them before it's too late! Then our smaller explosion/ crash signs with Zap, pow, boom, birthday boys name and age with white clouds and lightening bolts to create an explosion. 

Sweets:
The sweets we choose to create the sweets explosion were confetti filled cupcakes, "pop"corn, large swirly lollipops, "Super" Crunch bars wrapped with our candy wrappers and favors filled with colorful delights to give energy back to our Superheroes. For refueling we had mini HERRO H20 water bottles and antidote to Kryptonite drinks.

The Superhero sweets that caused the "sweets explosion" at our Superhero Birthday party!


In our Vintage Superhero Birthday party collection are candy bar wrappers with mini explosions and 2  Super CRUNCH bar designs. We filled little tin buckets (we found them at Target in the dollar bins!)



For refueling we had mini Hero H20 water bottles and an antidote to Kryptonite drinks.

 







We had large favor toppers filled with chiclets, M& M's or glum balls would work great too!



We also had cupcakes with our cupcake wrappers and half with our cupcake toppers.






Our cupcake toppers/ party circles come in 2 sizes 2.5" circles and 2" square tags




We used our 2" toppers as tags attached to our extra large swirled suckers!






We had white bags filled with popcorn with our "pop" tag! You can also use these on soda pop or pop rocks
