James’ first birthday party – Circus!

James’ first birthday party – Circus!

About a month or two ago it dawned on me that my little boy would soon turn ONE!  So, I started planing my first first birthday party…  which I thoroughly enjoyed from making the invites to decorating the room and making the goody bags for the little people :D

I also made the birthday boy’s party hat and decorations for the room.  I made ‘thank you’ stickers, with a circus theme, for the bubbles that was part of the goody bag contents.


We decorated the room to resemble a circus tent.  Cutting the fabric for this was quite a job!  I also used an old mosquito net and turned it into a small prezzie tent.  To keep the youngsters occupied we had a craft table where they could make their own party hats and animal masks.  We also had little note cards where guests could write to James.  These would be put into a time capsule along with some party paraphernalia and given to him when he’s old enough to appreciate all the messages and advice.


The birthday boy :D
