The Big Two

We celebrated Jude's 2nd birthday this past weekend with a circus themed party. He loved it and will not stop talking about giraffes and zebras. 

I made a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, because that seemed like a healthy option, obviously.

I spent a few weeks prior to the party finding cute little circusy pieces. I found Etsy to be very inexpensive and a great place for tent looking cupcake liners, and popcorn/peanut bags. I got little animals and adorned them in party hats and found small inflatable animals from the craft store for the kids to play with. Our friends lent us a circus tent (from Ikea) which brought it all together. 

I added pompoms to boring party hats I found at Target and gave Barnum's animal crackers out for favors. I tend to see no point in giving out little trinkets and stickers, something you can eat seemed a lot more reasonable to me.
